Fantastic Negrito-City Winery, NYC

City Winery NYC presented Fabulous Negrito on Monday evening. 

There was a film screening, Q&A, and an acoustic performance.

Xavier Amin Dphrepaulezz is an American singer-songwriter whose music spans blues, R&B, and roots music.

He is better known by his stage name- Fantastic Negrito.

He has won 2 Grammys for Best Contemporary Blues Album.

It was a night of stories told in a most honest, powerful and magical way. 

His incredible beautiful vocals are heartfelt and soulful. 

His most recent album is White Jesus Black Problems.

During one song he added a verse telling someone in the front row to stop talking…or he will make them part of his show. The loud talker argued. Doubt he’ll be back for another show.
