ABOUT DJ JOSÉ RUÍZ

DJ José Ruíz, aka MundoMuzik, is a DJ, radio host, promoter, and collector of world music, vinyl, art and all cultural and music ephemera. Jose’s taste in music is very eclectic, unafraid to mix traditional, experimental or folkloric elements in his sets. His confidence and impeccable taste in music is deeply rooted in the time and research he dedicates to learn about the genres he plays. His respect for the origin and tradition of music he loves can be heard in depth as a radio host and felt when he fills the dance floor. Jose has been able to stay connected with the pulse of his community, his contagious energy has earned him new followers, he sees music as a way to bring together our diverse backgrounds or as he puts it “to explore and celebrate the diversity of human expression in an increasingly inter-connected world or connecting the dots”.
