Playing various instruments with Ethio Cali Ensemble live at Union Station celebrating the Ethiopian New Year on Friday, September 12.
Ethio Cali is 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.
Admission is free and on a first-come, first-served basis.
