Mundo Jazz is a spoof World Music band whose mission is to teach us about peace, the environment, racial harmony and love.  It’s unfortunate, then, that they know absolutely nothing…

What can one say about a band whose songs convey the dangers of environmental degradation, the importance of racial harmony and the inherent evils of capitalism with subtlety and intelligence?  Mundo Jazz, however, preach peace, love and understanding with all the subtlety of a brick hitting butter, through their ridiculously catchy songs, awful dancing, thunderously crass poetry and catastrophic onstage telephone conversations with the Whitehouse.

A beautifully subtle satire on the likes of Bono and Bob Geldof, Mundo Jazz are also superb musical and comic improvisers, frequently creating songs on the spot and veering off into spontaneous chaos.  Worried about your carbon footprint? Don’t bother; you can buy one of theirs after the show…

‘Fabulous.’ Suzanne Vega

‘Top Class’ Harry Hill
