IN CONVERSATION – WIL DOG OF OZOMATLI AKA EL GAVACHILLO

This week’s guest is 3 time Grammy Award winner Wil Dog! I’ve heard about his side project El Gavachillo for a minute now and we discuss his exploration into the Bandas world as well as his journey as a kid growing up in Los Angeles during such a pivotal time for the hip hop generation of b-boying, community activism and the merging of so many cultures that would later become the sound of Ozomatli. We also get to learn about Wil Dog’s appreciation for the next generation of sound and his expirience of working with Srkillex.   One of things I appreciate about Wil Dog is his ability to be candid as an artist who delves into new genres of music and facing the fears that come along with it. This is probably one of my longest episodes but as you can tell Wil Dog is a natural story teller with so much to share. Hope you dig this week’s episode!
