Byron Bay Bluesfest

Fantastic Negrito


We’re super excited to welcome Grammy Award winner, Fantastic Negrito to Bluesfest for our 30th Anniversary Celebration. Fantastic Negrito represents Xavier Dphrepaulezz’s third rebirth, literally coming back from death this time. The narrative on this man is as important as the sound, because the narrative is the sound. His songs are born from a long hard life channelled through black roots music. Fantastic Negrito is the story of a man who struggled to make it and with an incredible, self-taught musical talent, he managed to find his way back on track to stardom. When you listen to Negrito, you’re invited to hear the story of life after destruction. Fantastic Negrito is a poignant and exciting artist creating high-quality Blues music we are excited to see live this Easter.
