Grammy and Latin Grammy award winning band OZOMATLI today premiered the video for “Como La Flor”, their version of one of Selena’s biggest and most adored tracks. For the fun and political video, the band hosted a Selena look-alike casting call in the kitchy environs of the legendary La Cita bar in DTLA club. The band received the Quintanilla family’s (they worked with AB in the past) blessing to record the song for their just released album OZOMATLI NON-STOP: JAMAICA >MEXICO, which was produced by drum & bass reggae legends SLY & ROBBIE (Grace Jones, Serge Gainsbourg, Herbie Hancock and Bob Dylan)
For OZOMATLI NON STOP: JAMAICA >MEXICO, the band invited friends Gaby Moreno, Juanes, Regulo Caro, Chali 2na, G.Love, Slightly Stoopied and Herb Alpert to perform songs written by Selena, Café Tacuba, Juan Gabriel, Julieta Venegas, Los Tigres del Norte and classic tracks from their youth. This is Ozomatli’s first album of mostly Spanish language music in their 21-year history. The band will perform on KCRW’s acclaimed “Morning Becomes Eclectic” on May 31.
