ArtsBrookfield is an initiative by Brookfield Properties to showcase free cultural experiences in public spaces throughout their properties. In Los Angeles this effort has taken place in Wells Fargo Plaza with the downtown urban jungle as a background. It was a Wednesday at noon and Ethio Cali, an ethiopian jazz band with California soul, got to woo ArtsBrookfield the audience and people passing by with their authentic tunes. I commuted to go, I live nearby but not close enough to walk and EthioCali was worth the lunch time session. Their original creations plus covers from Mulato Astake and other Ethiopian jazz masters make this band one of my top choices amongst those building greatness in Los Angeles. ArtsBrookfield series happens in different locations, very worth checking out, free to attend and you can find their calendar HERE.
