With Spanish guitar, violin, cello, bass, and an arsenal of percussion (both traditional and found), Mundi masterfully creates a sound that is rich, celebratory, dynamic, and deeply emotive. The quintet infuses their old world compositions with the energy and vitality of their diverse influences - Paganini to pop, rock to Rachmaninoff, 'Flea' to folk. The truth is, this ensemble's vision is old and new, classical and contemporary.
THE BOOK & THE FLOWER
Having just released their sophomore album, "The Book & the Flower" the members of Mundi are speaking of it with pride and excitement. Mundi promises music of celebration and lament within the CD.
