Ozomatli presents OzoKidz
The band Ozomatli is releasing their first children’s album entitled ‘Ozokidz’. The album has entered them into kid-friendly song market to help parents get back in step with the world music, Latin salsa, urban hip-hop, and jazz funk sounds that have made the band famous over the past 18 years.
The album starts off innocently enough with songs like the environmental friendly “Trees”, the instant hit with my daughter “Moose on the Loose” and the kid anthem “We are the OzoKidz” but once the “Ozo” gets you entranced with each of these dance tracks something else happens.
While still containing lyrics to learn about germs, learning about the world around them, exercising, being healthy and active the music gets serious. As you turn up the sound with a dance party in your living room the high energy beats kick in. During the fun songs “Let’s go to the movies”, “Like It’s Your Birthday” and “Changito” will effortlessly remind you how you became parents in the first place. Uh, meeting each other, dating, going out and dancing… “Easy now”.
Ozomatli was inspired to take on this project after a PBS stint in which they recorded a series of songs for children’s programming to be featured on the network. After taping an appearance for the NickJr show “Yo Gabba Gabba” the next step was heading into the studio to record this album.
As the band joins the fray into children’s music they are not getting “Watered down” but rather “Cooling up” the genre, the celebrated Los Angeles culture-mashers have gone from being hometown heroes to being named U.S. State Department Cultural Ambassadors. As a Grammy winning, multicultural, polyrhythmic band they look to break down barriers and create a community of happy, dancing people wherever they perform.
The Hornblow Group/Megaforce Records have released “OzoKidz” in which the band members (most of whom are dads) have produced the coolest 14 tracks of the most immediately engaging songs for kids. Actually for parents Too! Check it out!
