Fantastic Negrito

Monday, July 23, 2018 @ 7:00pm
Visulite Theatre

Fantastic Negrito is a man’s truth told in the form of black roots music. Each song a real story about a musician from Oakland who experienced the highs of a million dollar record deal, the lows of a near fatal car accident that left him in a coma, and is now in the phase of rebirth -- despite his playing hand being mangled.

After taking a long break, Negrito returned to music in 2014, performing in front of BART stations in Oakland and San Francisco to test his songs in front of "people who didn't want to hear them." He realized if he could connect with them and get them to stop, he was on to something. 

From there things started to move -- winning NPR's inaugural Tiny Desk Contest in 2015; performing with Sturgill Simpson, Solange, Chris Cornell and Temple of the Dog; and ultimately winning the Grammy for Best Contemporary Blues album in 2017, for his debut full-length album The Last Days of Oakland. The first single from his new album Please Don't Be Dead will be released March 23.

When you listen to Negrito, you’re invited to hear the story of life after destruction. For anyone who ever felt like it was over yet hoped it wasn’t, this is your music.
