Fantastic Negrito announces headline Dublin show


Fantastic Negrito is the incarnation of a musician who is reborn after going through a lot of awful shit. In fact, the name Fantastic Negrito represents his third rebirth, literally coming back from death this time.

The narrative on this man is as important as the sound, because the narrative is the sound. Songs born from a long hard life channeled through black roots music. Slide guitar, drums, piano. Urgent, desperate, edgy. Fantastic Negrito is the story of a man who struggled to “make it”, who “got it”, who lost it all, and somehow managed to find his way back.

Returning to music in 2014 by playing on the streets of Oakland, Fantastic Negrito won the inaugural NPR Tiny Desk contest. In 2016 he released his debut full length album, The Last Days of Oakland, which went on to win a Grammy in 2017 for Best Contemporary Blues Album.

Fantastic Negrito’s latest release Please Don't Be Dead won a 2019 Grammy for the Best Contemporary Blues Album. “The last album was more observational,” says Negrito. “On this one I'm bringing the fight.”

Fantastic Negrito will play the Academy Green room on Thursday 6th June with tickets from €26 incl booking fee on sale now from Ticketmaster
