Ozomatli and Flor de Toloache
Worldwide Block Party
Saturday, Sept. 29, 2018
7:30 p.m. // Atwood Concert Hall
Could this Latin-fusion double bill be more perfect? No, it could not. Ozomatli (Oh-zo-MAHT-lee) is no stranger to Alaska – the exuberant SoCal globetrotters have headlined festivals near and far. For 20+ years, the “party band with a brain” has captivated audiences with live shows blending funk, hip-hop, and other styles with Latino flair.
Joining the party is all-female mariachi band Flor de Toloache (toe-lo-AH-chay), who recently toured with indie rock supergroup The Arcs. Named after the legendary flower used as a love potion, the Grammy winners cast a spell over audiences with their soaring vocals and gorgeous harmonies. As Rolling Stone says, “you'll never think of mariachi as tame tableside entertainment again.”
Both bands keep fans on their toes and the world dancing. ¡Viva la fiesta!
