about Nuestra Musica

For the third year in a row, Latino music and culture make up a part of the festival. This year's "Nuestra Musica" section explores the diverse music scene in Chicago's Latino neighborhoods.

The musical acts performing during the festival range in style from the traditional (folksinger Nelson Sosa) to the contemporary (hip-hop collective the Essence).

Dance is also an integral part of this year's presentation. Visitors can try out dance moves in cumbia and merengue workshops.

Muralists offer portraits of life in Chicago's Latino neighborhoods.
