Todo Mundo translates to “all the world.”
Voted “Best World Music” band at the 2014 San Diego Music Awards, they blend the musical flavors of Spanish Rumba, Reggae, Brazilian, Balkan and Middle Eastern styles into an irresistible groove that has been moving dance floors and connecting with audiences across the world since 2009. The band, which was also nominated for “Best World Music” band at the 2012 and 2013 San Diego Music Awards, is led by singer, guitarist, and songwriter, Santiago Orozco, a native of Colombia. Santiago will be joined on stage with matt Bozzone (drums), and Melissa Barrison (violin).
Communicating through their Music
Through music, Todo Mundo has learned to share their soul and experiences with the world. The power of music allows them to transmit their messages of unity, equality, and diversity. Their music and performances possess explosive energy that celebrates life, with the aim of connecting with people from all over the world, and encouraging them to live in the present, as one. In November 2014, they received an award from the City of San Diego’s Human Relation Commission for spreading diversity through music.
They have toured across North America, performing at various festivals and concert halls throughout California, Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, Arizona, Idaho, Oregon, Washington, and Mexico. They have had the pleasure of supporting international and national touring artists such as Los Amigos Invisibles, Sister Nancy, Chris Isaak, Mike Love, Aterciopelados, Jarabe De Palo, Vokab Kompany, The Bunny Gang, Marbin, Groove Session, and El Gran Silencio.
In 2013, Todo Mundo teamed up with Grammy Award winning engineer Alan Sanderson and released Conexion (Oct. 2013), their latest full length studio album. The album contains a “masterful blend” of grooves from around the world, and was nominated for “Best World Music Album” at the 2014 San Diego Music Awards (San Diego Uptown News). In February 2015, Todo Mundo entered NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert Contest. From the 7,000 artist submissions they received, NPR’s Alt.Latino program selected Todo Mundo and 10 other bands to be featured in one of their podcasts. The band maintains a busy tour schedule and is planning on releasing new music in 2015.
