Stream a new African music track from Antibalas' Chico Mann featuring Kendra Morris.
<p>Brooklyn-based afrobeat/African music collective <a href="http://www.okayafrica.com/artists/antibalas-2/" target="_blank"><strong>Antibalas </strong></a>guitarist <a href="http://http://www.okayafrica.com/2012/05/10/audio-antibalas-sare-kon-kon-redux/" target="_blank"><strong>Chico Mann</strong></a><em> </em><em></em>is back on his solo grind once again, this time offering a dope collaboration with <strong>Wax Poetics Records</strong> artist <strong>Kendra Morris</strong><strong></strong>. The track, "Same Old Clown," is the combined effort of Mann's funky, bass-driven groove moving underneath Morris' effortlessly soulful vocals — the result is a cut that feels equally at place on the dance floor as it does soundtracking your morning walk to the subway. Last year, Antibalas' Chico Mann impressed us with <a href="http://www.okayafrica.com/2012/02/06/africa-in-your-earbuds-11-chico-mann-call-and-response/" target="_blank">his contribution</a> and knowledge of African music in our <em><strong>Africa In Your Earbuds </strong></em>series, and you should absolutely not hesitate to download that immediately (if you can turn 'Same Old Clown' off long enough, that is). <strong></strong>The <em>Same Old Clown</em> EP will drop March 4, which features two remixes and a dub from UK house producer <strong>Linkwood</strong> and US re-edit king <strong>Kon</strong>, serves as a prelude to Mann's full-length album <em>Magical Thinking</em> due out later this spring.
