Guitar player and vocalist, Ozomatli
Raul Pacheco is an East Los Angeles native Chicano that sings and plays guitar for 3 time Grammy winning culture mashers Ozomatli. The proud Papa of two left a promising career as an author specializing in Chicano political history, or maybe as an attorney specializing in civil rights law, or maybe even as a greasy ass politician grifting untraceable local funds all for a job that requires him to jump around while singing and strumming guitar which seems to make people very happy. Mr. Pacheco, as his fans call him, enjoys mixing politics with music and vice a versa. He has sung his songs in 47 countries, sometimes as a US Cultural Ambassador, and recently delved into the world of movie, TV, and video game composition. In fact, you may be listening to him right now.
