Ozomatli's music is as multifaceted as its members and influences. Meeting as young political activists and musicians, the original band formed in Los Angeles in 1995 to play a notorious urban-Latino-and-beyond collision of hip hop and salsa, dancehall and cumbia, samba and funk, merengue and comparsa, East LA R&B and New Orleans second line, Jamaican ragga and Indian raga—all while following a key mantra: it will take you around the world by taking you around Los Angeles.
Their music has been recognized and celebrated widely, having won three Grammy Awards, serving as official U.S. Cultural Ambassadors playing to audiences around the world, and in the City of L.A., April 23rd is designated Ozomatli Day in recognition of their immense contribution to the cultural life of the city.
Over the course of Ozomatli's 25-year career, the group has sold hundreds of thousands of albums, consistently sold out concerts around the world, and performed on high profile TV shows like "The Today Show," "Jimmy Kimmel Live," "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," and "Austin City Limits."
An outstanding performer, Matthew Andrae sings current and original music in a unique and percussive style which quickly captures his audience with the superb musicality and technique of his performance. Matthew's Brazilian/Flamenco/classical sound was enhanced at Berklee College of Music, University of Arizona and a brief stint at New England Conservatory. Matthew's playing is notable because of his ability to play bass lines, rhythm guitar and percussive accents all at the same time. In the spirit of Michael Hedges and Jose Feliciano, Matthew is uncommonly formidable on the guitar. When Matthew posted a song ("Sweet Celine") that he wrote for his newborn daughter on YouTube, it garnered over five hundred thousand views in the first five days.
