Josie Award Winning singer/songwriter Irene Michaels will be performing at the Chicago Human Rhythm Project Jazz Showcase on Monday, December 4th, 2023.
Chicago Human Rhythm Project (CHRP) presents rhythm-culture in performances, education programs and community development initiatives that foster great art, social reconciliation and economic justice.
CHRP centers artists, companies and communities deeply connected to the practice of ancient foot, hand and vocal rhythmic traditions as they continue to evolve as living, relevant contemporary art forms.
CHRP centers and platforms American Tap, African, Native American, Indian, Mexican Folkloric, Irish Step and other culturally specific, rhythm-centric art forms.
CHRP brings people together who do not live next door to each other to celebrate diverse rhythmic traditions to build and support a common ground.
