Antibalas horns join The Roots @ Global Citizen Fest, Central Park, NYC


Antibalas Horns with The Roots at Central Park 9-28-2014  

Last Saturday the horns (Martín Perna-baritone saxophone, Jas Walton-tenor saxophone, Jordan McLean-trumpet and Raymond Mason-trombone) joined the Roots and singers from the FELA musical to perform Fela Anikulapo Kuti's "Water No Get Enemy" at the 2014 Global Citizen NYC Festival. 

It was a beautiful day. Sun shining, the great lawn filled with over 60,000 people, all committed in some way to eliminating global poverty. Also performing were Jay-Z (and special guest Beyoncé), Tiesto, No Doubt with Sting, Alicia Keys, and Carrie Underwood.

Thanks for inviting us to help create the soundtrack.
