Fantastic Negrito and fans drop compelling coronavirus video

Fantastic Negrito tossed out a question to his fans:

“What are you doing during the pandemic?”

And fans responded from around the globe, sending in videos of how they are keeping themselves busy in these days when the coronavirus has shut down so much of what is normal going on in the world. He then stitched many of these clips together and the result can be found in the fun video for his new song “Chocolate Samari.”

“I got the idea or making this video based on seeing so much bad news every day about the coronavirus,” said the Grammy-winning blues/roots/soul singer from Oakland, whose real name is Xavier Dphrepaulezz. “I also wanted to connect with my world audience since So many shows had been canceled. Last year I was on six continents.

“So this is my way of bringing a little bit of light and a little bit of joy to the lives of people at a time when we are all quarantined feeling a little isolated.’
