Ozomatli Performs In South Africa And Madagascar On State Department Sponsored Tour
Published September 11, 2008

The politically active band will serve as Cultural Ambassadors when they perform a handful of shows this October. 

This is the first visit to Africa for Ozomatli, and they will be playing a free outdoor show in Pretoria with the band Freshly Ground, a South African band who are kindred musical spirits.

Ozomatli will be involved in several outreach events, such as music workshops for disadvantaged youth, and visits to AIDS clinics and  orphanages. Ozo will also play at  several festivals in both countries.

And to make sure they bring it all back home, tune in daily to 98.7fm (in the Los Angeles area) and to check out band interviews, exclusive photos, video blogs and more from Ozo’s travels, shows, outreaches and adventures.
