Venue: Into the Great Wide Open on Vlieland, The Netherlands
In 2000 Xavier Dphrepaulezz almost got killed in a car crash. After four weeks in coma he was ‘rebirthed’ after going through heavy physical therapy program, which took several years. He then started a new life.
Now, he’s conquering the world as Fantastic Negrito, playing black roots music, which consists of a a mixture or soul, gospel, drenched in a sauce of high energy and a punk attitude. He recently released a well-received album The Last Days Of Oakland and is busy with a European/American tour.
RAN was able to catch his concert in Europe, at the festival Into The Great Wide Open on Vlieland, one of the Dutch isles of The Netherlands. You can check out the photo highlights below:
