LA's progressive, Latin-fusion heavyweights have a kid-friendly side. OzoKidz takes the infectious grooves of samba and Jamaican dancehall, salsa and hip hop, and brings them to the younger set.
A trailblazer in smart music for families, Dan Zanes is known to rock out to bumping tubas or get musical saws singing, rethinking folk chestnuts and crafting catchy originals. In a fun program, he will explore his lifelong fascination with blues legend Lead Belly.
Deeply influential SoCal culture mashers, Ozomatli are often credited with launching the alt.Latin music movement. They will retake the stage for a full-on set of hip hop and rock, funk and salsa. With an activist spirit to match their hard-hitting grooves, the seven-piece, multi-Grammy-winning band captures the sound of a windows-down drive down sonically diverse Sunset Boulevard.
Venue Description: The world's leading performing arts center and home to the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, the Film Society of Lincoln Center, Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Juilliard School, Lincoln Center Theater, the Metropolitan Opera, New York City Ballet, New York City Opera, New York Philharmonic, the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, and the School of American Ballet.
