el zancudo loco


Locomondo Locomondo is the name of two different and unrelated musical groups.

1. A five member band based in Athens, Greece. It is the first band in Greece which fused the Caribbean sound together with Greek musical elements and Greek lyrics. Their first album entitled "Enas Trelos Kosmos" ("Crazy World") was released on March 2004 by Music Box International. Locomondo travelled to Jamaica after an invitation of the Skatalites' trombone player, Vin Gordon, in order to record their second album. Among the other Jamaican musicians that have participated in the Locomondo recording, is Deadly Headly Bennett, a former member of the Skatalites and Studio One veteran. The outcome of this collaboration can be found on their cd entitled "12 Meres stin Jamaica" (12 Days in Jamaica) released on July 2005 by Music Box International. The songs, sung both in Greek and English, are heavily influenced by the sound, the "energy" and "feeling" of Jamaica. The Greek element continues to play an important role in the formation of the Locomondo sound. Their third album, "Me Wanna Dance", was released on 14 May 2007 and features collaborations with Amparo Sánchez from Amparanoia and Natty Bo from Ska Cubano. In November 2009 they released their new live album from a concert in Greece on 2 cds.

2. Romanian group formed in 2007, now renamed to Todomondo. They first sang the song "Liubi, Liubi, I Love You" in 6 different languages (one for each member: English, Italian, Spanish, Russian, French and Romanian) and the audience loved them. They are: Mister M (Bogdan Marian Tascau), Vlad Cretu (vocals in the band SuperMarket), Ciro de Luca, Valer, Ghedi Kamara and Andrei Stefanescu.
