With their flexible instrumentation El Mundo is adaptable to meet the changing needs of this diverse repertory with the appropriate flair and affect. With the addition of the wonderful singers, such as Jennifer Ellis Kampani and Nell Snaidas, El Mundo also performs exciting of cantatas, zarzuelas, romances, villancicos and tonos humanos that range from sublimely sensual to light-hearted and folk-like.
