Rescheduled Show to September 15

Part love story, part historical excavation, Fantastic Negrito’s extraordinary new album, White Jesus Black Problems, is an exhilarating ode to the power of family and the enduring resilience of our shared humanity. Inspired by the illegal, interracial romance of his seventh generation grandparents—a white indentured servant and an enslaved Black man—in 1750s Virginia, the collection is bold and thought provoking, grappling with racism, capitalism, and the very meaning of freedom itself, all without ever losing sight of the desire and determination at the heart of the tale. While each track here could stand easily on its own, as could the companion film Negrito shot to accompany the music, stepping back to absorb the collection in its full audio and visual context yields a far more transcendent and immersive sensory experience, one that challenges our notions of who we are, where we come from, and, perhaps most importantly, where we’re headed.

 

“A stellar new album from Fantastic Negrito. Combining different corners of the Black musical world… timeless quality” – NPR Music

“A vibrant mix of raw blues, Prince-like funk and Stones rock’n’roll….Quite unlike anything else out there, it is a bit of a revelation” – The Times 4 Stars

“This tremendous synthesis of righteous rhetoric and gnarly, funk-flecked blues-rock… a potent tour de force” – MOJO 4 Stars

“Album number five finds him crafting a musical and thematic groove that thrusts his music further… ​​a combination of Frank Zappa and Prince” – American Songwriter 4/5 Stars

“The project is Negrito’s manifesto, a literal shout against oppression. His delivery system belies the lyrical impact with royal influences from Prince and Queen, jabbing you to set you up for lyrical body punches” – No Depression

“His most career-defining album to date… a searing, provocative impact” – GLIDE Mag
