Ugochi

 With over two decades of experience in the literary and music industry, UGOCHI has gained quite a notable reputation for her solo career and collaborations. Not content to rest on her gnash, UGOCHI & A.S.E. are always laying foundations for the next release, adding more classics to their repertoire. Nina Simone once said, "It's an artist's duty to reflect the times in which we live. That’s why UGOCHI & A.S.E. write, record and share their offerings on a frequent basis, making countless public appearances locally, nationally and internationally. This Chicago native is an international singing sensation who has been performing her original style of song and word poetics since she began her musical journey. She is known in her hometown best for her refined storytelling and songwriting ability as well as the technique and song style she has been known to dub vocal harmonics.


Adam Gottlieb & OneLove

With upbeat music and lyrics directly inspired by current struggles for social justice, Chicago-based Reggae Fusion band Adam Gottlieb & OneLove offer their songs to the soundtrack of a new revolution. Adam Gottlieb (first known from the Youth Spoken Word poetry movement) now writes primarily in the form of songs, brought to life by the incredible band OneLove. Comfortably rooted in a versatile Reggae/Folk-Rock sound, the band dexterously fuses Funk, Blues, Hip Hop, Ska, Jazz and more. Because the message is for everyone, the musical repertoire intentionally crosses over into these and more genres to create eclectic yet cohesive musical experiences, with a little something for everyone.  You can find OneLove's music on Soundcloud, Bandcamp, Spotify, iTunes, etc. Follow the band on Facebook and on our official website: adamgottliebandonelove.com.


Tukkiman

 Tukkiman is an internationally acclaimed singer, songwriter, producer and bandleader from Dakar, Senegal. His music is a unique mix of Afro-Beat, World, Hip Hop, Reggae and English Pop and sounds like a mix between U2, D Angelo and Bob Marley. His style is powerful, political and knows no borders.  Tukki came to study in Paris in 2006. Currently, he traces his steps between Dakar, Paris, New York and Chicago making his own route and following his own path. Tukki means travel in his native tongue Wolof and is the name of his first album; a unique project of a nomad who tells stories.  In each of Tukkiman's songs, there is always an underlying feeling for each of us to have the freedom to love, live and explore.
