World Arts Day

World Arts Day is designed to give the community an opportunity to experience and interact with various art forms from around the world. Los Angeles is a melting pot of cultures and ethnicities, and this dynamic interaction has made it a vibrant and rich community.

This year, we celebrate the diverse spectrum of arts from around the Asian continent. With activities ranging from Indonesian mask making, to Japanese Taiko drumming, and  Sri Lankan traditional jewelry making, this season’s World Arts Day is certain to be fun for the whole family.

As the preeminent arts center east of Downtown Los Angeles, we provide a context for the development of imaginative and artistic expression and the discovery of new cultures while cultivating an appreciation for the arts.

All events are hands-on, interactive, and free of charge.

Buika

 

Hailing from Spain’s Balearic Islands, Buika’s voice knows no boundaries when it comes to language or geography. She has collaborated with musicians and singers in languages beyond her native Spanish and Catalan, and has recorded tracks in English, French, Portuguese, Farsi, Italian, and Armenian. 

Buika graces the Luckman stage with her intense blend of musical styles that draw from the rich and eclectic sounds of flamenco infused with jazz, Latin jazz, Afro-beat, funk, soul, reggae, and pop. 

Ranking Buika in a list of the world’s fifty best singers, NPR once called her “the voice of freedom,” a remarkable epithet that recognizes her rich heritage, her electrifying presence, and her ability to draw new and unexpected ideas from her enormous musical vocabulary.

Seu Jorge

Grammy Award-winning artist Seu Jorge performs a very special tribute to David Bowie. Seu Jorge rose to international fame in the Wes Anderson film The Life Aquatic. In his acclaimed role as Pelé dos Santos, a singing sailor, Jorge performed several of Bowie’s songs. In a twist, he did it in Portuguese, accompanying himself simply on acoustic guitar. Jorge’s adaptations of these songs underscore the breadth and depth of the compositions and have gone on to have a significant cultural impact in Brazil and beyond.

“Had Seu Jorge not recorded my songs in Portuguese, I would never have heard this new level of beauty which he has imbued them with.” — David Bowie
