“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.

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.
