Ozomatli will headline a special tent dedicated to Latino Alternativo music at Bonnaroo this spring. Tomas Cookman and Amy Blackman-Romero of Cookman International / Nacional Reco will guest curate the tent, which will present a range of Latin-influenced music on Saturday, June 12. As of press time the tent is scheduled to feature: Los Amigos Invisibles (USA/Venezuela), the Nortec Collective present: Bostich + Fussible (Mexico), Aterciopelados (Colombia), Mexican Institute of Sound (Mexico) and Bomba Estereo (Colombia). DJs from each of the groups will perform between sets, and the members of Ozomatli will serve as guest MCs throughout the day.
Bonnaroo hosted similar tents devoted to bluegrass and African music last year. David Byrne also served as the guest curator for a tent that reflected his broad taste is music.
