The debut 12" vinyl! "Sweet work from a great Chicago combo – one who go way past the usual grooves you might expect from an ensemble of this nature! Sure, these guys have "Afro" in their name, but they don't just play Fela-styled sounds – and instead step into a warm, wide range of sounds – all of which they do incredibly well! Titles include "La Lluvia", "Locas", "Uno Somos Todos", "Sabrosa", "Esso Strut", and "Iwbwu". "

The digital only remix album ESSO put out while collaborating with Chicago's musical community. "We reached out to our network of DJs and producers to remix our songs. They took our original tracks to new places with fresh arrangements and special guests." The full remix album entitled  "Pueblo Unido" is available for download now! Click on the cover art above to get the exclusive download free via Bandcamp or Datpiff.

The self titled debut album full length CD. The rustic rhythms of Fela spiced with the textures of Fania blend with an improvisational ritual resembling the Funk Brothers; all from the streets that birthed house music. 


Pick up a CD copy via CDBaby, or download a digital version of the album with through iTunes, Bandcamp, GooglePlay, or Amazon.
