This coming Tuesday, the nearly-unclassifiable Ozomatli will bring their sound to the kindie world with the release of Ozomatli presents OzoKids. Those with a participating independent record store nearby (sadly, not us) will want to pick up the album along with a special box of sidewalk chalk that contains a download code for a bonus track, "Vamos A Cantar." But that's not all... there's a special contest, too.

The Task? Recreate the OzoKidz album cover art on your driveway or sidewalk. Bonus Prize: You can create a visual representation of the bonus track “Vamos A Cantar,” using the Ozokidz chalk. Snap a picture of your artwork being sure to include the special OzoKidz chalk box in the picture and email it to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

The band will be picking their favorites to receive an OzoKidz prize pack! The deadline for entries is October 30, 2012.

To find a participating independent record store, visit http://www.recordstoreday.com/Home - but please, call ahead to make sure they have the record and the chalk in-stock!
