Los Angeles: An Antenna to the World – Los Angeles is one of the most diverse cities in the world with approximately 140 nationalities and 200 languages represented amongst its residents. International sounds, sights, and tastes clash on every corner. Slide down the street with your car windows open and you’re likely to hear Armenian pop music fading into Mexican Norteño layered over Korean techno.

It’s been said that Los Angeles represents the future of how our country looks. Frosty makes the point that it also reveals how tomorrow might sound.
