The second installment of Breckenridge Creative Arts’ LateNite @ the District concert and film screening series returns to the Breckenridge Arts District campus on Friday, July 3, with music from Leon Joseph Littlebird and Todo Mundo and a screening of the Academy Award-winning ’80s classic “E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial.”
The evening begins at 6 p.m. with a set from Littlebird, whose style combines ancient flute music with captivating rhythms, followed by headliner Todo Mundo. Santiago Orozco, lead singer of Todo Mundo, said he always had a passion for traveling and an interest in cultures from all over the world, which naturally developed into a love of music ranging from Spanish rumba and reggae to Brazilian, Balkan and Middle Eastern.
“I moved to San Diego and didn’t know anyone,” he said. “I didn’t have time to waste asking people to play. I went out to the streets, to the farmers market and musicians sort of came to me and said, ‘Can we play with you?’ And I said ‘Yeah, why not.’ They became my friends and introduced me to new people, and, eventually, the band kept evolving.”
Orozco said Todo Mundo’s shows come from the heart, from an honest place, and the band tries to make each show its own little party, bringing everyone together to live in the present a lot of energy, a lot of soul and, of course, a lot of dancing.
“I want to connect with new people, spread the music,” he said. “Each town we play is magical and scenic in its own way. We’re here and making friends — I want them to have this sample of music and have a good, good time and forget all of the problems that they have and just enjoy life, enjoy the time we’re going to play.”
