Cleopatra Records Proudly Announces Signing Internationally Acclaimed Latin/Hip Hop/Rock Group Ozomatli!

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Two L.A. institutions will join forces on a new musical venture that is sure to shake up not just the local music scene but cause ripples all around the world! L.A.-based indie label Cleopatra Records is set to release the brand new studio album from one of L.A.'s most loved native sons, the genre-synthesizing six-piece supergroup Ozomatli! The band stopped by Cleopatra's office in early December to share a sneak peak of the album and announce the album's title, Non-Stop: LA → Mexico → Jamaica. which is due to be released in the spring of 2017. Watch the video below for an exclusive preview of Ozo's uniquely modern version of the traditional Mexican folk song "La Bamba," featuring guest Kyle McDonald of Slightly Stoopid, and learn even more details about the coming album:

Since its inception in 1995, innovation and creativity have defined Ozomatli. Hailing from Los Angeles, the group found a way to represent the city's eclectic culture through music that appeals to the local community and the world beyond. Ozomatli's success is exemplified in an impressive variety of genres, from classic to modern Latino, urban, hip-hop and other world styles. The "Dioses del Baile," or "Gods of Dance," have created one of the most exciting, captivating and flat-out fun live shows touring today. They continue to harness their musical instincts by conceiving new concepts and forging new sounds that keep fans on their toes and the world dancing.

The band catapulted to the top of the live music scene with their first eponymously titled album. The impact of the then 10-piece band's album was felt throughout the music world, and earned them the opportunity to open for Carlos Santana on his Supernatural tour. Following the success of its first album and touring with Santana and Mana, Ozomatli released its sophomore album, Embrace the Chaos, which garnered a Grammy award for Best Latin Rock/Alternative Album. The follow up album, Street Signs, won both the same award and the Latin Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album in 2005.
