About Ozomatli: Their music – a notorious urban-Latino-and-beyond collision of hip hop and salsa, dancehall and cumbia, samba and funk, merengue and comparsa, East LAR&B and New Orleans second line, Jamaican ragga and Indian raga – has long followed a key mantra: it will take you around the world by taking you around L.A.
On the national stage, the band were recognized for their service not just to Los Angeles but as global activists, receiving the National Council of LA Raza’s Humanitarian Award, and performing twice for President Barack Obama. Visit www.ozomatli.com for more information about Ozomatli.
