Todo Mundo ("All the World"), who was voted "Best World Music" band at the 2011, 2014 & 2015 San Diego Music Awards, blends 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.  

 

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.  

 

Todo Mundo was voted "Best World Music" band at the 2015 & 2014 San Diego Music Awards and have toured across North America for the past 3 years (CA, CO, UT, AZ, NM, ID, WA, OR, PA, SD, & Mexico).  Their music is a mixture of Spanish Rumba, Reggae, Brazilian, Balkan and Middle Eastern styles.  

 

They've performed at a variety of festivals (Lightning in a Bottle, Joshua Tree Music Festival, River Fest, Kaaboo Del Mar Festival​) and venues and have supported international and national touring artists such as The Roots, The Wailers, The San Diego Symphony, Fred Wesley, Mike Love, Los Amigos Invisibles, JJ Grey & Mofro, Lucinda Williams, Richard Thompson, Sister Nancy, Chris Isaak, Aterciopelados, Jarabe De Palo, Vokab Kompany, The Bunny Gang,  and El Gran Silencio.  

 

In November 2014, they received an award from the City of San Diego's Human Relation Commission for spreading diversity through music.  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 as their favorite contestants, which they featured in one of their podcasts.

 

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).
