Bursting onto the L.A. stage with their first eponymously titled album in June 1998, Ozomatli capitalized on being the talk of the live music scene, particularly their show stopping gigs at venues such as Dragonfly, Opium Den and The Viper Room. By 1999, they were touring with Carlos Santana and soon won the 2001 Grammy for Best Latin Rock/Alternative Album. They repeated history in 2004 by winning again in the same category for their album Street Signs. When they were formed, Ozomatli symbolized an emerging, multicultural Los Angeles. Over the years Ozomatli has become the ultimate jam band, pulling together the strands of creativity into a unique rhythmic machine. And learning to live together, like the city they represent, has made their music even stronger. Ozomatli closed out Steamboat’s 2008/09 season with a huge crowd and a concert that is stilled remembered by many.
