Description: Three-time Grammy Award-winners Ozomatli's music has been described as urban-Latin-hip-hop-salsa-dancehall-samba-funk, with the sounds of reggae, Indian raga and New Orleans second line thrown in. It is playful, happy and terrifically danceable, and its mash-up of styles can transport listeners around the world. This LA-based group, who have been designated as State Department Cultural Ambassadors, has taken their party sound into the global arena, playing not only free concerts but giving classes to local musicians in Nepal, Jordan, India, and Tunisia, and extending humanitarian outreach in Vietnam, Thailand, and earthquake-ridden China. Their message is simple: different instruments but one rhythm, with music uniting us all.
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.
