ESSO is a multicultural live music band from Chicago, IL. The group made a splash by leveraging their influences and invoking polystylistic sounds from the same urban streets that birthed House music, and potent movements in slam poetry, punk rock, and free jazz. Drawing on these raw influences, the band effortlessly fuse Latin roots music with modern Americana into a rhythmic sancocho filling dance floors and providing ample evidence of Chicago’s presence as a hotbed of creative new music in the States. This inner city big band of rotating members has unsealed a kaleidoscopic repertoire propelling them to perform for concerts and festivals alongside Grammy winning artists.
