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 1960’s and 70’s, 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 across Africa, Central/Latin America and the Caribbean.

Bodhi Rock – “Hailing from Los Angeles California, Bodhi Rock is a funky reggae powerhouse who seamlessly blend elements of Reggae, Soul, Funk, and R&B.

The group came together at Citrus College where the members met within the music program and would eventually grow to include the extended family of musicians within the greater LA music community. Many of whom work/have worked with artists such as Tribal Seeds, The Green, Natural Vibrations,
Quinto Sol, Mike Pinto, and more. Meanwhile, the band has been making a name locally. Playing festivals such as Reggae on The Mountain several times and supporting artists such as Katchafire, Ooklah the Moc, Collie Buddz, New Kingston and Con Brio.

The unique and high energy Reggae, Funk, and Soul fusion has been quickly gaining attention and bringing people to the dance floor. The group is currently playing shows throughout California and is working on their second studio album.”
