"Sanctuary" - Antibalas | QUICK HITS

6:28

“Sanctuary” was first released on the 2007 Antibalas album “Security.“ It’s a slow-burner of a tune, in the classic Fela Kuti style: a build-up of rhythm around drums, percussion, and Hammond organ. And then Amayo – the lead singer -- begins to preach the words. Where do you find sanctuary in a world that yanks us in multiple directions?
