Elephant Talk

Bigger-than-thou Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra is bulletproof, too

There are things that are much more sophisticated about kit drumming -- trying to do all these different beats at once, it's like someone who's talking on the phone, vacuuming, and cooking. There's an efficiency to it because you're covering all these parts, but it can lack a richness. The minute you have more than one person, it adds something, and that's the whole magic of Antibalas, but also the magic of anything that's done with the collective spirit. When multiple people speak with one voice, that's something really powerful.
