From Wikipedia:

Ozomatli
is a seven to ten piece band playing primarily Latin, hip hop, and rock music, formed in 1995 in Los Angeles. They are known both for their vocal activist viewpoints and their wide array of musical styles - including salsa, jazz, funk, reggae, rap, and others.

In a 2007 NPR interview, band members Jiro Yamaguchi and Ulises Bella describe Ozomatli:

“ You drive down Sunset Boulevard and turn off your stereo and roll down your windows and all the music that comes out of each and every different car, whether it's salsa, cumbia, merengue, or Hip Hop, funk or whatever, it's that crazy blend that's going on between that cacophony of sound is Ozomatli, y'know?

One of the best bands to come out of LA, period. They cover all different styles and their live shows are amazing, they end every show in a congo line through the audience. They've had incredible musical guests, my favorites being Chali 2na from LA-based hip-hop group, Jurassic 5, Cut Chemist (one of the best DJs out there) and DJ Spinobi. That all has to do with my hip-hop tendencies, though ;p
