City Sounds / Historic Filipinotown

City Sounds is a free quarterly concert series highlighting the diverse local music that Los Angeles has to offer. Hosted at the GRAMMY Museum, each concert will feature several musical acts from a specific LA neighborhood, showcasing a different neighborhood at each concert.


Join us this October at the GRAMMY Museum’s first City Sounds concert, which will feature performances by Jessica Louise, The Balikbayans, Klassy, and Apperson


Situated between Echo Park, Westlake, and Rampart Village, Historic Filipinotown has been home to a vibrant Filipino-American community since the 1940s. In 2002, Historic Filipinotown was officially recognized by the city council at the proposal of then-council member Eric Garcetti, making it the first official geographic designation by any city outside of the Philippines honoring Filipinos. Today, Historic Filipinotown is a diverse community with a strong arts presence and a number of annual festivals dedicated to honoring Filipino culture and heritage.
