About Ozomatli

Created in 1995 in Los Angeles, Ozomatli has become known for their Latin fusion style and their activism through music. The six-piece band plays a unique, energetic mix of salsa, funk, jazz, reggae, rap, and rock. 

Ozomatli has played in countries all over the world, opened for Santana on their Supernatural Tour, composed music for Happy Feet 2, and served as the house band for stand-up comedian Gabriel Iglesias’ TV show, “Gabriel Iglesias Presents Stand Up Revolution.” They have also released eight studio albums, including 2017’s “Non-Stop: Mexico to Jamaica.” Vital to their music is their outspoken activism: Ozomatli is passionate about issues such as farm-workers’s rights and immigration reform. 

About La Misa Negra

A seven-piece band from Oakland, California, La Misa Negra has a loyal following thanks to their danceable brew of cumbia music and Afro-Latin rhythms. Their performances explode with energy and infectious dance grooves created by punk rock influences, horn and accordion riffs, and a relentless rhythm section. 

La Misa Negra has toured the country sharing stages and festival bills with artists such as the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Stevie Wonder, Lenny Kravitz, George Clinton and Julieta Venegas. Their diverse fan base love them not only for their wild energy and humor, but also for their activism on topics such as gun violence, water scarcity, and gender inequality.
