Chico Mann Live on KCRW

Written by

Chico Mann has been one of the most played artists at KCRW over the last few weeks and hearing our favorite –“Ya Yo Se” – live was a great way to start the week. His music fuses Afrobeat with the music of Cuba. In fact, he praised KCRW for helping get this modern Afrobeat sound out to a larger audience. “Mentirosos” was also a standout, along with “Estrellitas,” which he described as a re-imagining of Merengue.

He shared a lot of personal details about his background in the interview with Jason Bentley, making this entire session worth a listen.
