Todo Mundo: A Trolley Show

San Diego band performs 'La Calle' on the MTS

By Ryan Bradford

The words “public transportation” and “romantic” rarely go together, but there used to be a certain romance to the  transitory quality of riding a train. With so many strangers sharing a ride, it’s not too hard to imagine any of them as your love interest, accomplice or the key to your undoing. Very few circumstances allow us the opportunity to create imagined narratives anymore, but as with any good movie—these narratives need a score. Cue Todo Mundo. 

In this episode of A Trolley Show, San Diego's Todo Mundo turn an ordinary ride home into a romantic journey through their salsa-infused, world-music sound. Big props should also be given to trumpeter Melissa Mejia, who manages to give the performance an air of mystery—similar to that stranger who’s making eyes at you.
