CHICO MANN ANNOUNCES WEST COAST TOUR DATES
Time-traveling multi-instrumentalist-producer Chico Mann is bringing his "funky electro-
Afrobeat outﬁt that sends both boom boxes and backsides into glorious tremors" (Flavorpill) to the West Coast for a string of performances in San Francisco and Los Angeles that will include two special shows to celebrate the Fania release of El Alcalde Del Barrio, a deluxe 2-disc compilation, 34-track box set from the father of Latin Boogaloo, Joe Cuba. The album will be released officially on February 23 and commemorates the one-year passing of the Latin legend that was Cuba.

2010 is already shaping up to be a banner year as Chico has been given the keys to the famed Fania vaults which, under new directors Codigo Music Group, has amassed the single largest collection of Tropical Music in existence by uniting the many labels and imprints that shaped those classic sounds.
In addition, Chico's collaborations with producer Rob Fusari (Lady Gaga, Beyonce) are taking shape and there are plans for Chico to perform at South by Southwest in Austin, TX and Europe to round out the spring. Chico Mann's next studio release is also nearly complete.
February's two-city, nine show tour will ﬁnd Chico Mann in a variety of settings including The Elbo Room in San Francisco and The Mint in Los Angeles, where they will be incorporating Joe Cuba cuts into their one-of-a-kind set of Afro-freestyle that Turntable Lab calls "The future of music, in case you didn't know."
Chico will also perform a special in-store at Turntable Lab LA and be the featured guests at some of LA's hottest parties including Dam Funk's Funkmosphere at Carbon and Mucho Wednesdays at La Cita.
