Mundi is a Christchurch- and Wellington-based band that showcases some of New Zealand’s top musicians in a fiery display of psychedelic rock and groove music. With a discography going back at least 15 years, the group’s albums explore new musical terrain through a duel of woodwind and strings, hypnotic grooves and haunting melodies, percussion and drums, dancing and merriment.

Mundi composer and flautist 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.
