Mundi’s music is like Afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti meeting Jethro Tull’s Ian Anderson- filled with global colours, grooves and influences. Composer and flautist for Mundi, Tamara Smith has travelled the world compiling inspiration for her compositions along the way - from performing in Jazz clubs in Paris and recording an album in Sri Lanka, to learning traditional Indian flute by the Ganges and warding off Alligators in the heart of the Amazon.
Mundi released their 3rd album "The Pale Blue Dot" in 2019 followed by performances at the likes of TEDX, Christchurch Arts Festival and on the banks of Avon/ Ōtākaro river with Yo-Yo Ma as part of his Bach Project.
"Mundi definitely knew how to get all eyes on them...Great sounds, vibes and stage presence, the only thing that I was sad to see was the exit of the park..." - Gardens Magic Review, Wellington, 10/01/2019
