“Xavier Dphrepaulezz, as Fantastic Negrito is full of punky, bluesy spirit and has a gritty resonance that we reckon a lot of people are going to dig…”– Irish Times

Berkshire native Xavier Dphrepaulezz who performs under the moniker Fantastic Negrito moved with his family to Oakland, California at the age of 12. A bay-area resident, Dphrepaulezz won the National Public Radio (NPR) Tiny Desk Concert Contest in February 2015, beating out more than 7,000 submissions.

Negrito describes his music as “songs born from a long hard life channeled through black roots music.” for more information
