Chico Mann is know for his funky-Brooklyn-Afrobeat-mad DJ skills. Chico started playing music when he was 12 years old and found his roots in artists like Fela Kuti, Afrika Bambaataa, and Celia Cruz amongst others. Mann takes the sounds of 70s Afrobeat and mixes 80s Freestyle and Afro Cuban in to create a unique sound the bridges the gap between those styles and the electro rock of today.
KCRW is presenting the night and you can catch Chico on Morning Becomes Eclectic Monday December 6 at 9AM. Tune in to 89.9FM if you’re in the LA area or you can listen online here.
