Rhythms Del Mundo – the globally acclaimed afro-latin music collective.
Rhythms Del Mundo is a collection of artists, musicians and songwriters collaborating with some of the biggest names in popular music across the world. Rhythms Del Mundo, formed in 2004 and with its first release in 2006, has worked with the likes of Coldplay, Beyonce, Bob Dylan, Maroon 5, Jack Johnson, U2, One Republic and more, to create some of the finest sounds in African, latin and world music of the 21st Century.
Rhythms Del Mundo stormed the music world with its first release in 2006 – Cuba – blending the sounds of the Buena Vista Social Club, recorded in a studio in Havana, with the world’s biggest popular artists and their Western sounds. Cuba peaked at 74 in the U.S. Billboard Top World Albums and remains in the collections of latin music lovers worldwide – you can buy it here on this website or listen on Spotify.
From there, Rhythms Del Mundo have released a further four albums, working with the likes of The Killers, The Rolling Stones, Jack Johnson, Amy Winehouse and Green Day. A sixth brand new album is currently in the making, expected for release in early 2017.
As well as their unique sounds and musical style, Rhythms Del Mundo are very proud to be a non-profit organisation, working as the main music project of Artists Project Earth, donating all profits to climate change adaptation and mitigation and ocean conservation projects worldwide. Through the release of their music, Rhythms Del Mundo have already supported over 360 projects via Artists Project Earth.
Kenny Young, founder and producer, said at the time of the group’s inception: “You can call these [disasters that are happening] natural disasters but after all the research and scientific data, we know that we’re at least partly to blame for some. Global warming is now in the news daily. If we don’t act in the time frame our experts give us, our grandchildren will curse us eternally.”
