Looped: Chico Mann

Written by

Looped is an audio & visual journey through the eyes of KCRW DJ Anthony Valadez. Explore the streets, beats and meet the people who make it happen.

Chico Mann has put together a prolific and dynamic music career, playing with Antibalas and producing a number of solo albums. Most recently, Mann teamed up with Captain Planet for a funky new project.

On this week’s Looped, Anthony checks in to see how it all came about and what he likes to nerd out on. Be sure to stick around ’til the end for a special guest appearance.

Saturday June 3 – Chico Mann and Captain Planet are bringing their full band along for a bombastic show to kickoff KCRW’s (free) Summer Nights concert series @ One Colorado in Pasadena. You can also get a preview this Friday on Morning Becomes Eclectic!
