CD Reviews

The Soundtrack of LA
Shredword | 02/05/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Drawing on influences from all over the globe, Ozo continues to amaze. I heard the track Believe on the local Pacifica affiliate right after a horrifying dispatch from Iraq. It was chilling--and the song has had a profound association for me ever since. Ozo truly represents the best that LA has to offer celebrating diversity and challenging the status quo. Ozo = LA."

"Every song is fabulous and I feel instantaneously cooler just listening to it. I can't get enough of the feel good, latin/jazz/hip hop/middle eastern music vibes. Join the party and prepare to get your groove on!"
From latino, to hip-hop, to RAP, to jazz, to Bollywood

"Want a world tour in about an hour? Take a trip with Ozomatli and don't even worry about getting your luggage lost--and don't take off your shoes. You are going to want to dance. This LA-based Latino group's really hit their stride with their third CD. If you like Carlos Santana and or War, you're going to love this group. Their messages of racial unity and peace are great and there's not a downbeat song on this CD.

"Love and Hope" is the song I first heard from Ozo, but it came from a local radio station (KGSR-Austin Broadcast CD). I've since picked up "Street Signs" and plan to keep getting as much of Ozo I can.

The opening song gives you an idea of what to expect--anything! It starts with a swift-paced Latin dance number driven by strings and moves to rap with a Bolly backbeat, complete with sitar.

"Who's to Blame?" takes us to Africa and the Middle East with a RAP lyric laid over heavy percussion and clapping. It's their 'wake up call to the citizens of the planet'. What a closer--I still want more.
