Ozomatli’s Worldwide Quarantine Block Party — which acted as the group’s 25th Celebration and fundraiser for artists — last weekend was so well received, they decided to do it again. The second installment will land on Cinco De Mayo and once again be a livestream fundraising event. Hosted in conjunction with the House of Blues Music Forward Foundation, the focus will be to raise funds for musicians and bands impacted by the novel coronavirus.
The event is free, but if one can, there are options to name your amount to predetermined packages starting at $5 to premium VIP after party options available for purchase. Pili Montilla and KCRW’s Raul Campos will once again host the event beginning at 5 pm PST, and Chali 2na and Cut Chemist will also be returning.
“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!”
