Todo Mundo
Todo Mundo ("All the World"), who was voted "Best World Music" band at the 2014 San Diego Music Awards, blends the musical flavors of Spanish Rumba, Reggae, Samba, Balkan and Middle Eastern sounds 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 equality and diversity. Their music and performances possess explosive energy that celebrates life and unity, with the aim of connecting with people from all over the world, and encouraging them to live in the present, as one.

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 a wide variety of international and national touring artists such as Los Amigos Invisibles, Sister Nancy, Chris Isaak, Aterciopelados, Jarabe De Palo, Mike Love, Vokab Kompany, Groove Session, The Bunny Gang, Interstellar Transmissions, and El Gran Silencio.

In 2013, Todo Mundo teamed up with Grammy Award winning sound 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). The band's most recent accomplishment was receiving an award in November 2014 from the City of San Diego's Human Relation Commission for spreading diversity through music. Todo Mundo maintains a busy tour schedule and is planning on releasing new music in 2015.
