### Anomalies, Black strings and the charged Cardy formula

We derive the general anomaly polynomial for a class of two-dimensional CFTs arising as twisted compactifications of a higher-dimensional theory on compact manifolds $M_d$, including the contribution of the isometries of $M_d$. We then use the result to perform a counting of microstates for electrically charged and rotating supersymmetric black strings in $\operatorname{AdS}_5 \times S^5$ and $\operatorname{AdS}_7 \times S^4$.
