This dynamic Chicago Latin jazz group promises to take you on a thrilling journey of lively salsa, merengue, cha cha cha, samba, rumba, and Latin jazz beats. The band's focus for this concert will be music by women composers of Latin music performed by Latin women musicians. Hear music from top female composers including Elaine Elias, Andrea Brachfeld, and Rebecca Mauleon, along with Chicago's very own Mujeres Unidas! Grupo Cha Cha are known as the Sly and the Family Stone of Latin bands because of their gender and ethnic diversity.
