After Burning Spear came Ozomatli, a group with a sound very different from the smooth reggae tones of Burning Spear. I would describe their sound as a mix of rap, Latin, hip-hop, all with a middle eastern background. Does that sound a bit different to you? I assure you that it was but some of their tunes were pretty good as I enjoyed the mysterious air to them with the middle eastern sound. Whatever it was they did, their fans were appreciative as the crowds were enlarging and getting more boisterous with their cheering and dancing. Evening was approaching and full blown party time was nearing.
Saturday night brought 1970's favorite, The Marshall Tucker Band, popular rock and soul guitarist Johnny Lang, and three time Grammy winning Los Lobos. That concluded a great day and weekend of music and fun at the 2006 McDowell Mountain Music Festival.
