Culture blenders Ozomatli threw a wild Worldwide Quarantine Block Party to celebrate their 25th anniversary and raise money to benefit other artists last Saturday, April 25 on their website. The event was such a smash success, they’ve announced a sequel!
Like the first event, Part 2 of the Worldwide Quarantine Block Party will be a livestream fundraising event, hosted in conjunction with the House of Blues Music Forward Foundation. Again, it will help generate funds for musicians and bands impacted by the recent COVID19 outbreak and the loss of their tours worldwide. While the event is free, the band encourages those who can afford to help to give to this important cause.
Returning hosts Pili Montilla and KCRW’s Raul Campos will kick off the fireworks at 5 pm Pacific Standard Time. The event will also include a premium VIP after-party available for purchase. Chali 2na and Cut Chemist will be back, along with new surprise guests to be announced!
The first event was unlike anything ever attempted before! In addition to live music, commentary, and giveaways, the band premiered their latest music video, Dos Cosas and created a brand-new song live during the broadcast event, all while staying quarantined safe at home! They promise even crazier fun this time around!
“We really loved how things turned out and just want to keep the love going,” says a spokesperson for the band.
“Music helps us share our connection to one another, to strengthen it, to remind us we are not alone during hard times. Now more than ever we need to remember that. We are proud to share our music with the world and help other artists at the same time. Come help us celebrate and keep the music alive!”
