Fantastic Negrito won NPR’s inaugural Tiny Desk Contest in 2015, has performed with Sturgill Simpson, Solange, Chris Cornell and Temple of the Dog, and ultimately won the Grammy for Best Contemporary Blues Album in 2017 for his first full-length album, “The Last Days of Oakland.” He mostly recently won his second Grammy for Best Contemporary Blues Album this year for his full length album, “Please Don’t Be Dead”.
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. 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.
