Mondo Mundo quickly emerged as one of the leading booking agencies in the world music scene. Founded by two music industry veterans, Phil Ballman and Mel Puljic, the company filled the void for representing the more cutting edge “globally-sounding” artists. Their roster represents both indie emerging acts right alongside legendary established ones.
Mondo Mundo strives to break molds in the “international music” scene by reaching a wider audience for their acts. In addition to the traditional presenters and venues, they book their eclectic roster at rock venues. They’ve debuted groundbreaking United States tours for artists like afro-beat master Seun Kuti, Brazilian’s hip samba funkster Curumin and now a massive tour run with Bassekou Kouyate & Ngoni ba, Sub Pop’s newest signing and foray into global music.
