Arts and Culture is the backbone of our movement and march towards FREEDOM! LA CAN’s newest organizing committee features incredible artists from in and around the LA area…all of whom have a deep passion for community and social justice. The art we create is keenly focused on bringing attention to the work we do in community. 

The Freedom Singers

The Freedom Singers represent the musical wing of arts and culture at LA CAN, comprised of members of the Skid Row community. This powerful ensemble breathes new life into the music and traditional sounds of our movements. The Freedom Singers ensemble is a signature statement about arts and culture at LA CAN and provides a platform to shift some of the negative narratives that skid row residents face. This dynamic ensemble is sure to bring the house down! 

LA CAN Band

Comprised mostly of Skid Row community members, the LA CAN Band has become one of the most sought after bands when it comes to the proliferation and arrangement of Movement Music. Founded in the Summer of 2019, this troupe is ever-expanding and covers songs from a very diverse range of the Afrikan Diaspora, including, but not limited to Classical, Pop/Rock, R&B, Gospel, Reggae, Blues, Jazz and original music.
