Fantastic Negrito is a man’s truth told in the form of black roots music. Each song is a real story about a musician from Oakland who experienced the highs of a million dollar record deal, the lows of a near fatal car accident that left him in a coma, and is now in the phase of rebirth despite his playing hand being mangled.
After a long break from music, Fantastic Negrito won NPR’s inaugural Tiny Desk Contest in 2015. Since then he’s performed with artists including Taj Mahal, Sturgill Simpson, Solange, Chris Cornell and Temple of the Dog. His album The Last Days Of Oakland won the 2017 Grammy for Best Contemporary Blues Album.
We’re thrilled to announce Zee will be returning to London to support Fantastic Negrito (US) – blues album Grammy award winner – with her power trio Z-STAR TRINITY. Catch this stompin’ rock event at Dingwalls in Camden (London UK) on 1st November. This is Zee’s only London show in 2018.
