Ozomatli are an LA-based band who combine Latin and world music influences with funk and hip-hop. The group is also very politically conscious, promoting social change both in their music and through activism. They have gathered a large fan base due to their pure energy at live shows.

Chali 2na and Cut Chemist of Jurassic 5 were both originally members of Ozomatli. They have since left the group but both make guest appearances on Ozomatli's latest album, Street Signs. Since their departure Ozomatli have recruited rappers Justin "El Niño" Poree and Jabu and turntablist DJ Spinobi into their ranks.

The current lineup of the band, at the time of the release of Street Signs, is:

Wil-Dog Abers - Bass, background vocals
Raul Pacheco - Guitar, Tres, Jarana, Lead Vocals
Justin Poree - Percussion, Rap Vocals
Asdru Sierra - Trumpet, Lead Vocals, Piano, Acoustic Guitar
Ulises Bella - Saxophone, Clarinet, Requinto Jarocho, Kayboards, Background Vocals
Jiro Yamaguchi - Tabla, Percussion, Background Vocals
