In September, Latin rockers OZOMATLI’s new single “Monster” hits the Top 10 (#10) position at radio on the Adult Contemporary Top 200 chart. The vibrant track–which shares the Top Ten with Adele, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Bruno Mars–is exclusively available now on the recently released star-studded premiere compilation CD from the David Lynch Foundation, DOWNLOAD FOR GOOD: Music That Changes The World.
“Monster” producer Tony Berg (Aimee Mann, Pete Yorn) said, ”That Ozomatli should see radio success with ‘Monster’–a reflective song with a groove–under the aegis of the David Lynch Foundation–a reflective organization with a groove–is a wonderful thing. And makes perfect sense.”
All artists and label proceeds from DOWNLOAD FOR GOOD support the David Lynch Foundation. The David Lynch Foundation was launched six years ago to bring the stress-reducing, health-promoting benefits ofTranscendental Meditation® to underserved populations, including at-risk inner-city youth and U.S. veterans returning home from combat with post traumatic stress disorder, as well as Native Americans, the homeless and prisoners. To date, the David Lynch Foundation has provided scholarships for nearly 150,000 adults and youth to learn to meditate, eliminating the traumatic stress that undermines academic achievement and fuels substance abuse and violent behavior. Independent published scientific research shows that meditating individuals have better overall mental health and students have dramatically better test scores, grades and graduation rates, while dropout rates, suspensions, and expulsions greatly decrease.
