AS Program Board Presents… Welcome Back Concert ft. Cuco!
Combining romantic, lo-fi bedroom pop with charm, wit, and Spanish lyrics, Cuco won a fervent fan base with the release of his 2016 debut mixtape, Wannabewithu. A native of Hawthrone, California, Omar Banos developed his musical abilities early, listening to Chicano rappers like MC Magic and Baby Bash, and experimenting with digital recording.
Under the name Cuco, he recorded Wannabewithu while still in high school and quickly developed a regional following, particularly among young Latinos. A follow-up mixtape, Songs4u, arrived in 2017 as Cuco made the move from playing SoCal house concerts to proper clubs, selling out his first two venues. Singing in both English and Spanish over woozy track beds of synths and drum machines, he continues releasing new material, including the 2018 singles “Sunnyside” and “CR-V,” both of which appeared on his EP Chiquito in May of that year.
