Metro Presents: Ethio Cali
LA Union Station, Fred Harvey Room
Metro Presents showcases an exciting array of free arts and cultural programs at historic Union Station….
In celebration of Ethiopian New Year, we’re excited to present Ethio Cali, a Los Angeles based Ethio-Jazz ensemble, led by trumpeter, arranger, and composer Todd Simon. The ensemble’s sublime sound is inspired by the golden age of Ethiopian music of the 1960s and 70s, filtered through a lens that is uniquely Los Angeles. Acknowledging the diverse musical foundations of Ethio-Jazz, the ensemble also draws inspiration from the rhythmic and melodic textures of Sudan, Somalia, Ghana, and Colombia.
