These are the guys to take a euro-trip with. They radiate cool, uncalculated charisma, a vivid spirit stoking fire and love in the blood of their audiences. The members of Ozomatli are the kind of people who act like their own sun, effortlessly pulling others towards them with their gravitational force. Jiro started out playing the tablas at a south-indian vegetarian niche, Justin played in Disney’s Lion King Parade, Uli might be the mysterious man with trenchcoat and clarinet who you quietly scooted around on an LA sidestreet, and Wil-dog used to play with Macy Gray…these guys all bonded together to start up the band for a labor protest movement. The band members are proud of their eclectic lives, for proof just read up on their adventures at ozomatli.com. Ozomatli’s music is a strange yet endearing mix of hip-hop, funk, and salsa, that deserves its own genre. The concert will take place inside the castle theater at the MACC, and if this concert is anything like their last one, it is sure to be spilling out over the top with dancing fun-seekers, so watch out for flailing arms from the lady spinning in circles in her floor-length white dress. The performance is on Saturday, February 20th, at 7:30 PM and tickets are on sale for $25, $30,or $35.
