1/18 | Pecados de Maria with Sandra Antongiorgi & ESSO Afrojam Funkbeat

Pecados de Maria, a Chicago collaboration of diverse musicians puts a spin on traditional Latin Alternative music, creating a communion of Rock, Jazz and Latin fusion. The mixture of Afrocuban percussion coupled with Blues/Jazz guitar and deep smoky vocals takes the listener on a fiery journey. Core members Marialen Magaña, Josemiguel Coutiño, Nic Byrd, and Agustin Santana have developed a bond through their love and the life that they share with their music.

SANDRA ANTONGIORGI | Soulful. Raw. Powerful. Authentic. Visionary. These are only a few of the words used to describe Sandra Antongiorgi, a multi-dimensional artist with a passion for music, arts and education, deeply rooted in community and culture. An accomplished singer, songwriter and painter, Sandra’s life experience in Chicago and inherent talent have weaved together to produce a diverse and impressive body of work in the arts. Born into a musically driven Puerto Rican family, she began singing and playing guitar at the age of five. Her music, influenced by traditional Caribbean sounds, Soul, R&B, Rumba and Gitano, is her own distinctive expression of a World, Latin, Neo-Soul sound.

¡ESSO! Afrojam Funkbeat is a dynamic multi-cultural musical ensemble formed in Chicago in 2013. The band performs a variety of roots-rock inspired dance music from the Americas, as well as the Caribbean Islands. The diverse musicians create energizing polyrhythmic grooves, combine biting twang guitars, thumping bass, with the strength of brass horns, group singing, and urban poetry.
