Fantastic Negrito

Fantastic Negrito is the essence and truth of being human told in the form of black music. Each song is the story of this Oakland musician who experienced the possibility of a million dollar contract with a major label, but decided to give it all up. A musician who survived a terrifying car accident and, after a four-week coma, is like a phoenix ready to rise again. Fantastic Negrito enchanted everyone during Chris Cornell's concert openings and his first headlining acts. His music emphasises caution and space, between slide guitar, drums and piano. Rather than revisiting his models, Fantastic Negrito leaves Lead Belly and Skip James intact and builds with them a bridge to a modern sound with loops and samples of his live instruments. In 2020 Fantastic Negrito wins the Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Blues Album with the album Have You Lost Your Mind Yet? (Cooking Vinyl, 2020)the third to be awarded in the same category after those for The Last Days of Oakland (Blackball Universe, 2016) e Please Don't Be Dead (Cooking Vinyl/Blackball Universe, 2018).
