During a benefit for the Sequoyah School in Pasadena at Farnsworth Park in Altadena last Sunday, genre-bending Ozomatli performed for a crowd of 500 at the Farnsworth Amphitheatre.

LA County High School for the Arts’ jazz rockers Schizogenic Mother opened for the 10-member band, whose kids attend the progressive private school. Sequoyah is located at the corner of Pasadena Avenue and California Boulevard in Pasadena.
