Video: Antibalas 'Dirty Money'

Antibalas, New York City's go-to afrobeat veterans, have been around for over ten years yet never made a music video. "Dirty Money," the group's first immersion into the moving-image, follows a puppet story about financial woes — many of the scenes being direct visual representations of the song's wealth vs. workingman lyrics. Watch above and find the track on Antibalas' self-titled LP out August 7 via Daptone Records. New Yorkers can catch some group members playing live as the backing band for FELA!.
