ÉSSO is the brainchild of Chicago born songwriter and producer Armando Pérez. He curated an inner city big band of rotating members which definitively unsealed an agile sound propelling them to perform for mutli-cultural concerts and festivals alongside Grammy winning artists. The group made a splash by invoking polystylistic enthusiasm from the uncompromising urban streets that birthed House music, as well as undeniably potent movements in hiphop, punk rock, and free jazz. Drawing on these raw influences, the Chicago based band effortlessly merge Chicano and Boricua roots music with Cuban son into a rhythmic sancocho filling dance floors and providing ample evidence of Chicago’s presence as a hotbed of diverse new music in the States. Their bilingual lyrics bring gusto to the socio-political conversation while adding context to inspired musical compositions and alluring beats. Swirling guitar, brass horns, spoken word and group singing add to their tropical funk outfit with a fearless focused spirit intact. ÉSSO’s foundational versatility has taken the band on tours across the US and into Mexico behind their critically acclaimed releases of original independent music online and on vinyl. This is the soundtrack of rebel streets remixed for the future by its outspoken immigrant youth.
