About Ozomatli

Innovation and creativity have defined Ozomatli since its inception in 1995. Originally from Los Angeles, the band celebrates the city's eclectic culture through both local and world music influences. Ozomatli includes band members Wil-Dog Abers (bass, marimbula); Raúl Pacheco (guitar, tres, jarana); Justin 'El Niño' Porée (percussion, rap vocals, lead vocals); Asdrubal Sierra (trumpet, lead vocals, piano); Ulises Bella (saxophone, requinto jarocho, keyboard, melodica); and Jiro Yamaguchi (drums, percussion).

Ozomatli's release of their first self-titled album earned them widespread recognition and the opportunity to open for the legendary Carlos Santana on his Supernatural tour. Their sophomore album Embrace the Chaos won them a Grammy for Best Latin Rock/Alternative Album, and their album Street Signs won both the same award and the Latin Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album. They are currently working on their latest recording Ozo-fied Volume 1: A Century of Mexican Classics, with classic Mexican hits reimagined with a reggae feel. 

Ozomatli is committed to fighting for social justice issues. In 2006, Ozomatli was named Cultural Ambassadors for the U.S. State Department. They also performed for President and First Lady Obama at the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute's 32nd Annual Award Gala. The band also emphasizes the importance of family and children, bringing generations together through their music. Their 2012 release Ozomatli Presents Ozokidz features original and lively children's music that educates children on the values of nature and knowledge, sometimes with kazoos. 

Funded in part by the C. Henry Hathaway 1907 Memorial Fund No. 3 and the Robert S. Weil 1940 Fund.
