L.A.-based collective Ozomatli are mash-up maestros: Their Latin-rock-rap-reggae-funk fusion mirrors the ethnic makeup of their hometown. On their third full-length, the nine-piece adds Middle Eastern/Indian accents to the multiculti mix, leading to some insanely overstuffed arrangements. Still, there’s no denying the sheer energy of this idealist crew. If the U.N. needs a house band, Ozo’s the act to call.
