Fantastic Negrito live on Fog City Blues tonight

Oakland-based Fantastic Negrito sings songs born from a long hard life channeled through black roots music. Slide guitar, drums, piano. Urgent, desperate, edgy. For anyone who ever felt like it was over yet hoped it wasn’t, this is your music; blues harnessed, forged in realness. Fantastic Negrito was the winner earlier this year of NPR's Tiny Desk Concert contest.  He joins host Devon Strolovitch live in the studio this Wednesday 5/20 at 9:00 pm.
