About the Listing

Here’s a chance to see one of Chicago’s most appreciated female vocalists, Maggie Brown and her sultry sister Africa, doing what they do best: singing with theatrics on stage. These “2 Brown Sisters” energetically merge their foundations in jazz, with the melting pot of their musical upbringing. 2 Brown Sisters performances are harmonious blends, emitting their sisterly love and often comical chemistry on stage.   Always enjoyable and rich with relevance, 2 Brown Sisters are thoughtful when fashioning a show, drawing not only from the rich treasure trove of material from their prolific father but, these days, their own original songs. Africa & Maggie Brown are the two youngest of seven children by singer, songwriter, playwright: Oscar Brown, Jr.


Carrying on the legacy means using their talents to “edutain,” offering insights into history, culture and life.  Their shows include a world music sensibility, blending genres from classic jazz and ballads, to spoken word and folk tales set to hip-hop and afro-cuban rhythms.


The band will include the 2 Brown Sisters on vocals as well as the band on drums, piano, and horn or guitar. They bring all of their own equipment so you just need to provide a space for them to play.
