Curly Castro is a charismatic Brooklyn native who has called Philadelphia home for over a decade. He recently released his solo debut album, FIDEL on February 19th, 2013. The album pays respects to Bobby Seale and W.E.B. DuBois in some places, before lambasting Al Jolson and Ronald Reagan, all the while influenced by musicians ranging from Boot Camp Clik to Johnny Cash. “Some people name-drop cars, others name-drop books; I name-drop Black icons – everyday people that you should know,” admits Curly of his cause. FIDEL contains songs that provide actual facts missing in a lot of today’s verses, without losing a sense of escapism and entertainment.
