is an unusual kind of DJ. In latin, mundi means ‘of the world’ and indeed his soundcloud page features an extremely wide range of music including Zimbabwean mbira, Afro-house, Colombian cumbia, Indian/UK bhangra, Egyptian shaabi, Reggae Dancehall from around the world and more.. Based in Oakland California, his eclectic mixes and live sets have gained respect from far and wide and have recently been featured in multiple online magazines and blogs such as Afropop Worldwide, Generation Bass and Global Ghetto.
Listen to his recent Egyptian Electro Sha3bi Mix on Generation Bass.
He credits the public library across the street from where he grew up as his greatest musical influence because it was there, at a young age that Mundi began listening to, reading about and collecting music from across the globe. Currently he’s working on things as varied as “a mix of new African music from all around the continent, South African house, Angolan kuduro, Ghanian azonto, Ivorian coupe decal” and a “General Levy dancehall-rock remix with arabic strings” among them. Follow him on soundcloud and facebook to keep up with the latest.
