Fresh Music Friday: Fantastic Negrito

Fresh Music Friday

Fantastic Negrito is black roots music for everyone, Blues with a punk attitude from Oakland, California.

“The narrative for Fantastic Negrito is as important as the sound, because the narrative is the sound,” so says the “about” section on his website. It’s a phoenix rising from the ashes story and a sound to match. A mix of soulful, black roots music, Fantastic Negrito, hailing from Oakland, California,  harnesses the blues and some folk, with a dash of punk. Word has it that he’s working on a new recording and should be hitting the road sometime in 2016-17.
