EMEFE, Brand New Life, Bird City Revolutionaries

When: Wed., Jan. 16, 9 p.m. 2013

Drummer Miles Arntzen (Antibalas) leads the New York City-based 10-piece EMEFE through a blend of blue-eyed funk, jazz, Afrobeat rhythms, and old-school soul. The group is touring on the heels of releasing last year's Good Future, a barreling nine-song album that's driven by instrumentation and arrangements that owe plenty to Fela's legacy, but brings its own distinctive flare to the Afrobeat cannon. Bold horns, winding guitars, and big beats are par for the course.
