Age Requirement:

Latin, hip-hop, and rock group Ozomatli are known both for their extremely vocal activist viewpoints and their wide array of musical styles. For years, Ozomatli has toured the globe, supported anti-war mobilizations, human rights movements and pioneered mash-ups of hip-hop, salsa, cumbia, and Middle Eastern funk.

Ozomatli take their name from the Nahuatl word for the Aztec astrological symbol of the monkey, which is also a god of dance, fire, the new harvest, and music. They met through their affiliation with the Peace and Justice Center of Los Angeles, and their first performance was for picketers during a strike.

Their career began in the Los Angeles and San Diego/Mexico border-area club scene. Following an appearance in Vibe magazine, the group broke into the mainstream, releasing Ozomatli, their self titled debut album, in June 1998 under the Almo Sounds label. In 2005 Street Signs won the Grammy Award for Best Latin Rock/Alternative Album.
