Antonino’s Tuesday Music


Hailing not 40 miles from my parents of hometown of Coli Al Volturno, Italia is the Naples based Spaccanapli (Divided Naples).  The best way for me to tell you about them is just to have you listen.

Fresh from Nacional Records, run by Tomas Cookman who brought us the international star Manu Chao, is Spanish-Harlem based Pacha Massive.

The best musical group in America, Antibalas,  just recorded a song with Radio 4 called “The World is Waiting.” (disclosure, this song is part of  the soundtrack of my film “Let Fury Have the Hour.”)  After leaving the studio, they headed directly to Boston to battle The Roots in a Soundclash. An unbelievable spectacle that must be seen. Video after the jump.

Antonino D’Ambrosio is the author the upcoming "A Heartbeat and A Guitar: Johnny Cash and the Making of Bitter Tears” (Basic/Nation Books, 2009) and "Let Fury Have the Hour: The Punk Rock Politics of Joe Strummer” (Avalon Press). A feature documentary film based on "Let Fury Have the Hour,” executive produced by Tim Robbins and directed by D’Ambrosio, is currently in production. His latest short film "No Free Lunch” stars comedian Lewis Black. More from this author →
