Chico Antonio is an icon of contemporary Mozambican music – multi-rhythmic and multi-melodic. His artistic career of over 40 years has generated an unmistakably Mozambican musical style with such creative intensity that it is hard to classify whether you’re inside or outside the country. When you listen to Chico Antonio – the pinging of a modern guitar beneath the gentle breath of a flute, or the dragging beat of the drum in sweet dispute with the timbila – you wonder, is it Afropop? Afro rock? Or Afro jazz? And the answer is always the same – it’s Chico Antonio!
