EMEFE / Noble Savage
Inspired by the music of Fela Kuti, Miles Arntzen, drummer for Antibalas and Superhuman Happiness, created EMEFE in 2009. Since that time, the band’s infectious and energetic blend of afrobeat, funk, soul, and rock has supported the likes of Passion Pit and Rusted Root and members of EMEFE have played with artists such as the Budos Band and Medeski, Martin, and Wood, just to name a few. EMEFE’s instrumentation includes a drummer, a bassist, two guitarists, two percussionists, a keyboardist and a four-piece horn section. Dubbed “one of the Big Apple’s best live acts” by SarasotaDay.com, EMEFE’s motto is “music frees all.” The evening will feature members of Antibalas and the Big Mean Sound Machine.
