Mexico's Supreme Court upheld a law that went into effect in March legalizing gay marriage in Mexico City. The law, which also allows same-sex couples to adopt, was found constitutional in an 8-to-2 vote. The ruling came just a day after a California judge overturned Proposition 8, which defined marriage as a partnership solely between a man and a woman.

Los Angeles–based act Ozomatli have been combining music and politics ever since forming 15 years ago. And as cultural ambassadors to the U.S., the band's multi-culti members have traveled around the world spreading their message while entertaining listeners with a specially-made blend of hip-hop, funk, rock, reggae and Latin rhythms. Their upcoming fifth album, Fire Away (out April 20; Mercer Street Records/Downtown Records), continues this tradition with a couple of socially-conscious songs that will make you listen (and hopefully, think).
