Chico Mann - music without borders
I had the pleasure of sharing the stage with Chico Mann a couple years back in New York City and have been a fan of his Afro/Latin/Dance/Retro/Electro/Funk style ever since.
The group's founder and front man, Marquitos Garcia, has been described as "the Jersey City Cuban James Brown of the Casio". He is also the guitarist for another great Afrobeat band - Antibalas - the group behind the new Broadway musical Fela!
Here is a very ¡GLOBAILE! style music video from Chico Mann - featuring footage of people dancing all around the world. Dance is universal mi gente! Ya yo se!
