THURSDAY / JUNE 6, 2024

THE CHAPEL
777 Valencia St, San Francisco

Musical Performance by Ozomatli

The sonic landscape of Ozomatli mirrors the versatility of its members and the eclectic euphony of their influences. Originating as young political activists and musicians, the original band formed in the heart of Los Angeles in 1995. Their music—a notorious brew of urban-Latino fused with elements of hip-hop, salsa, dancehall, cumbia, samba, funk, merengue, comparsa, East LA R&B, New Orleans second line, Jamaican ragga, and Indian raga—resonates with a fundamental mantra: to explore the world’s sounds by navigating through the cultural tapestry of Los Angeles.

Their musical prowess has garnered wide acclaim, marked by prestigious accolades including two Grammy Awards, a Latin Grammy, and the honor of serving as official US Cultural Ambassadors, enchanting audiences globally. In a heartfelt nod to their colossal contribution to the city cultural vibrancy, April 23rd is celebrated as Ozomatli Day in Los Angeles.

Thursday, June 6, 2024. Doors open at 6:30PM.
