Ozomatli is a seven to ten piece band playing primarily Latin, hip hop, and rock music, formed in 1995 in Los Angeles. They are known both for their vocal activist viewpoints and their wide array of musical styles - including salsa, jazz, funk, reggae, rap, and others. In a 2007 NPR interview, band members Jiro Yamaguchi and Ulises Bella describe Ozomatli:

With an eclectic sound and a passion for performance, Ozomatli quickly became known as one of the hottest live bands in L.A. even before they released their first album. The nine-man band (sometimes 10) plays a heady mixture of hip-hop, rock, reggae, funk, and Latin music, never staying in one musical place for too long. Their self-titled 1998 debut put them on the map, but the follow-up expanded their audience even further, winning the band a 2002 Grammy for Best Latin Rock/Alternative Album. ~ Rovi

Ozomatli is known the world over for their unique musical style, which includes rock, hip hop, Latin, and everything possible in between. The amount of musicians and instruments present during tour dates has provided Ozomatli's music with tremendous depth and a robust sound that is widely accessible to all kinds of music lovers. Ozomatli has continued to produce that hit sound on their latest album, Fire Away, and it will be on prominent display during the group's highly anticipated tour dates in 2011. At the heart of Ozomatli is a passion for activism and sociopolitical justice, as the band's members all met at the Peace and Justice Center of Los Angeles. Early tour dates appealed to the cultural diversity of Southern California. Right out of the gate, Ozomatli scored a hit with their self-titled debut album, garnering praise for their fusion sound and poignant lyrics. The band continued to refine their sound until Street Signs in 2004, which won both a US and Latin Grammy.

Ozomatli's diverse sound and activism led them to become official cultural ambassadors of the US, leading to tour dates in Nepal, Madagascar, South Africa, and Tunisia, to name a few. Ozomatli's latest album, Fire Away, has continued the group's commitment to cutting edge music with a prevalent message, as shown through songs like "Gay Vatos in Love" and "It's Only Time." These songs and more will appear on the remainder of Ozomatli's tour dates in 2011. Many of the group's performances will be at festivals and fairs, including the 311 Pow Wow Festival, Sunset Junction Street Fair, and the Harmony Festival.
