Chico Mann – Manifest Tone, Vol. 1


Chico Mann is the brainchild of Antibalas' guitarist, Marquitos Garcia, who, armed with his childhood Casio keyboards, recorded Manifest Tone Vol. 1. The project, which began as an experiment in spontaneous composition, proved to be a true glimpse into the essence of Garcia's musical passions:  the Latin music of his upbringing and the vocabulary of Fela Kuti's afrobeat.
