CHICO MANN:

The sounds of Africa have taken multi-instrumentalist Chico Mannaka Marcos Garcíaall over the world. So itʼs tting that after spending years learning to speak Afrobeat, albeit with a Cuban accent, Chico Mann has employed several dialects to make a larger musical statement, creating a hybrid of Afro-Cuban rhythms, Afrobeat and classic freestyle that has emerged to be one of the new, vibrant musical styles of today.

Born in New York City to Cuban parentshis mother a pianist and disc jockey, his father a record label head and producer of merengue recordsa young Chico started early, diving headlong into the spheres of guitar, piano, and break dancing; the works of Willie Colón, Fela Kuti, Lisa Lisa, and Afrika Bambaataa led the way. His father told him to steer clear of the business, but did he really have a choice?

Fast forward to the early 2000s. When he wasnʼt burning up stages worldwide with the mighty Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra, Chico was home cooking up a more personal sound, featuring himself on all the instruments (guitar, bass, keyboards, programming) and vocals (in Spanish!). A debut album Manifest Tone, Vol. 1 emerged in 2007 and now 2010, he is ready to drop another groundbreaking statement - Analog Drift, his rst for Wax Poetics Records. Here Chico Mann introduces the rhythms of Afrobeat to the music of Cuba, the Latin freestyle avors of 1980s New York and Miami, and the synth-heavy electro beats of dance oors across the globe.

This is music is good for your mind and behind. And itʼs always real. The total package. Chico says it best himself: "If you want it you can have it / If you want it, you can take it, you can grab it."

So go out and get what you want, and let Chico Mann provide the soundtrack.
