Ozomatli Featured At A New Normal Life Campaign Launch

Grammy Award winning band Ozomatli will be the featured headlining talent at A New Normal Life Launch Event’s Free Community Concert on August 17th at Northern New Mexico College.

A New Normal Life Campaign unites government agencies, non-profits and healthcare providers to support recovery and raise awareness about substance abuse as a chronic disease. The campaign is Northern New Mexico’s first multi-media public health education campaign to support people and families dealing with opioid use disorder by connecting them with supports and resources in the region.

Defined as world music, jazz, urban, hip hop, rock and Latin, Ozomatli breaks all boundaries and appeals to the widest range of music fans. Expect to dance and celebrate as they perform crowd favorites, including “Cumbia De Los Muertos,” “Saturday Night,” and “Elysian Persuasion.” For more information on the band visit: https://ozomatli.com.
