You may have heard of Ozomatli, the alternative/Latin band whose hits include "Cut Chemist Suite" or "Saturday Night," but did you know their name derives from the Nahuatl word for monkey? Ozomahtli is the 11th daysign of the Aztec Borgia Codex, a manuscript that served as a 260 ritual calendar of sorts as well as used by religious figures made of beautiful painted animal skins. The monkey represents art, music and harmony - a perfect fit for the musical band.
