Austin-Based Mundi Coming To Urban 15

Austin-based Mundi, an ensemble with a world view of chamber music.

Guitarist Darrel Mayers, founder and director of the musical ensemble, Mundi, describes the group's approach as "chamber rock." When I asked him a few years ago how rock comes into the mix of violin, cello, bass, guitar, French horn, harmonium, and percussion, he said it is the drum kit, played by Ric Furley. The full drum set anchors the ensemble's stage presence, while adding a subtle contemporary drive to the mostly acoustic mix.

Mundi will bring its world view of music to Urban 15, 2500 S. Presa, Saturday, March 21st, at 8 PM. Urban 15's George Cisneros says the venue will be intimate, with seating for 110, a setting which should be ideal for the ensemble's folk inflected repertory. Considering the limited seating, George recommends making reservations and ticket purchases in advance via Urban 15's website: www.Urban15.org.
