Finally Mundi's much awaited CD launch is here, in their home town of Christchurch! Celebrating the release of their second album "In the Blink of an Eye" under the label Monkey Records. Mundi will have the sizzling African drum ensemble Wontanara to open, plus special guests!

“Unique and bursting with creative genius” - Presto Arts & Culture
“...Fresh...funky. Intricate, multi-layered works...dynamic solos” - The Press
“They give us their all, and send us home with an indubitable sense of passion and conviction, giving us a taste that we’ll certainly not be soon to forget.” - Craccum

Led by virtuoso flautist and composer Tamara Smith, Mundi features an exciting array of instruments, including flute, sax, banjo, marimba, voice, bass and world percussion. This original world-jazz band is not to be missed!

A well-travelled bunch, they have covered almost every continent on the globe between them, taking the pulse and flavour of some very exotic regions. Mundi has toured and performed widely, including in Sri Lanka, where they recorded part of their debut album in collaboration with traditional Sri Lankan artists, and had a TV special devoted to them.

Their music is often heard on National Radio, has been featured on the Air New Zealand play list and on Australia’s ABC network, as well as being showcased recently on Radio New Zealand Concert's hour-long show “Global Sounds” and also "Indie album of the week" on Kiwi FM.

Mundi’s music, while utterly original, it is a synthesis of many global colours and influences. It takes the listener on a musical journey... traversing landscapes rich with texture and surprise; allowing them to experience, through their own imagination, other vignettes of the world...
