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.
