Now in its 10th successful year of bringing citizens together in unity and community to celebrate the beautiful planet we call home, EarthFest Los Angeles 2018 is the City of Angels' premier musical, creative, and activist-oriented festival for those interested in healthy lifestyles, sustainable living, and the many important, wide-ranging environmental and socioeconomic issues facing Mother Earth today.
EarthFest Los Angeles will take place on Saturday, October 20th, 2018, at Media Park in Culver City.
A highly-popular and free public service project of California Greenworks, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit focused on improving city urban communities through environmental outreach and educational programs, EarthFest Los Angeles is a fun, day-long, and family-friendly event filled with live music, cultural dancing, influential guest speakers, children's activities, information workshops, and much, much more - all focused on maintaining healthy lifestyles, adopting sustainable living best practices, and addressing...and taking action against such major environmental problems as global climate change, air, land and water pollution, and deforestation. Here at California Greenworks, we believe those changes first begin with ourselves, our lifestyles, and our living practices, and those transformations then have a direct and long-lasting positive impact on our environment.

AfriCali a hearty cloppino of rock, blues, heavy rhythms and percussion of 1970's South African music, Drenched in Hip hop Roots topped with coastal-spch seasoning. AfriCali is more than just a band, it's "a mixture of Afrobeat truth-consciousness with a Californian street swagger, morphed with hip-hop and drenched in cultural roots". The AfriCali genre lends importance to all the instrumentation as much as it does to the vocals. The melodies of each instrument and voice develop in episodes, as opposed to the familiar verse-chorus format. Influences are drawn from soulful rock, blues, heavy rhythms and percussion of 1970s Ethiopian music topped with coastal-psych seasoning. After working together with the likes of Brian Wilson, Gerry Garcia, Talib Kweli and K'Naan, keyboarder Nico Georis und MC Eyezon founded AfriCali in 2010 as an immaculate realization of the musical melting pot they envisioned. Dedicated to the "daughters of the sun and the mothers of the brave", their new TDR release "Taught Of A Culture" is an authentic liberatory statement of this concept, living up to real values and aspirations by pushing aside all limits and boundaries for a new, self-determined culture. Recommended for fans of The Rolling Stones, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Eugene McDaniels, Serge Gainsbourg, William Onyeabor and Talib Kweli alike.
