“truly fantastic blend of blues, funk, rock and R&B”
—Chicago Sun Times on Fantastic Negrito

A musical force to be reckoned with, Fantastic Negrito has made waves since winning the inaugural NPR Tiny Desk concert in 2014 (with a song recorded in a freight elevator in Oakland). With back-to-back Grammys wins for Best Contemporary Blues Album, Negrito and his band capture audiences with soul-searing vocals, slide guitar, and a dynamic rhythm section that moves from sorrowful blues to gritty funk with precision and passion. High-octane, community-based drumline Brooklyn United Drumline Band opens with their expert musicianship and spirited choreography.
