David Hernandez and Street Sounds translate the city of Chicago into music.
Blending folk, jazz and Afro-Latin elements in its music, the band provides a perfect backdrop for Hernandez's poetry as he
chronicles pedestrian Chicago. Whether recalling his own childhood in Puerto Rican neighborhoods or extending that experience
to the city's many immigrants and overlooked populations, Hernandez's verses portray existence as seen from the street.
It's no wonder he's been given the unofficial title of "Poet Laureate of Chicago."
