Album Review

Los Angeles-based Ozomatli are a new kind of American band, a band reflecting the multiracial and multicultural One World demographics of the 21st century. Drawing on musical sources as diverse as salsa, hip-hop, rock, jazz, funk, Tejano, and reggae, Ozomatli appear to be trying to be all things to all people, but amazingly, they pull it off more times than they don't, and even when their increasingly inclusive experiments fall short, they still manage to offer up new creative possibilities. With the release of Street Signs you can add Middle Eastern music to the mix, and once again, the sheer number of ingredients they manage to pack into their sound is impressive, beginning with "Believe," the album opener, which should be all over pop radio with its full, deep, and anthemic sound (that it isn't all over the radio says a lot more about the current state of radio than it does Ozomatli). "Te Estou Buscando" and "Saturday Night" are also impressive, but the real highlight here is the appearance of legendary jazz and salsa pianist Eddie Palmieri on two tracks, the brief and lovely "Dona Isabelle" and "Nadie Te Tira," a blast of horn-drenched salsa that underscores an obvious point about Ozomatli: aside from their considerable cultural, political, and musical import, this is one hell of a dance band.

Customer Reviews


Ozomatli is amazing! 2005 Grammy Winners! If you like reggae, hip-hop, latin, or all, you must listen to ozomatli. I saw them today in concert on the Roots Rock and Reggae tour!

Raul Pacheco, leader of Ozomatli....his daughter and son go to my school!

I LOVE ozomatli! Ozomatli always has a consert just for my school (every year), because Alma and Santiago, son and daughter or Raul go to my school! I always love Ozomatli because of their variety of different types of music! Definitely a great band!

A wonderful album...

from perhaps the most fantastic live band ever. Their music defines the idealized flavor of the Los Angeles area: sunny, complex and vivacious. Highly recommended, and if it matters to you, critically acclaimed, as this album won the 2005 Grammy for Best Latin Rock/Alternative Album.
