M.U.S.E. had the great opportunity to talk to the band Ozomatli before they took the stage for the Los Lobos Cinco De Mayo Concert at The Greek Theater.
Mike Sandoval talked to the band about their trip to Australia and the band latest album, PLACE IN THE SUN. It isÂ the eighth album by multi-genre, multi-cultural Grammy winning band Ozomatli, takes the bandâ€™s street-party consciousness to new heights of eclecticism. Produced by the band and long-time friend, world renowned engineer Robert Carranza and featuring collaborations with the legendary Eurythmics guitarist Dave Stewart and Xandy Barry of WAX LTD, PLACE IN THE SUN is just the latest proof of the bandâ€™s relentless vitality. Shifting gears from electro-cumbia to garage rock, hip-hop, and PÃ©rez Prado mambo, Ozomatli infuses a DJ party mix with dynamic live band chops and attitude.
