LOCOMONDO is a 5 member band based in Athens, Greece. It is the first band in Greece which fused the Caribbean sound together with Greek musical elements and Greek lyrics. Their first album entitled "Enas Trelos Kosmos" ("Crazy World" the translation of the band's name in Greek) was released on March 2004 by Music Box International.
After the release of their album, LOCOMONDO played a series of live shows in several venues across the country. Furthermore, they had the chance to play as support band for world-known acts such as the legendary Skatalites and Chumbawamba and participate in the Rastavibe festival. Songs like "Trendy Litsa" and "100 afro" had ample air-play in almost all the Greek radio stations, while the song "Stin Athina" entered the play list of Radio France Internationale for 2 months.

In 2005, LOCOMONDO travelled to Jamaica after an invitation of the Skatalites' trombone player, Vin Gordon, also known as "Don Drummond Jr." in order to record their new album. This musician is considered as a "living legend", given that he can be heard on numerous Studio One recordings, as well as playing with Burning Spear, Bob Marley and the Wailers, and many others.

Among the other Jamaican musicians that have participated in the LOCOMONDO recording, is Deadly Headly Bennett, a former member of the Skatalites and Studio One veteran. The outcome of this collaboration can be found on their new cd entitled "12 Meres stin Jamaica" (12 Days in Jamaica) released on July 2005 by Music Box International. The songs of their new cd, sung both in Greek and English, are heavily influenced by the sound, the "energy" and "feeling" of Jamaica. The Greek element continues to play an important role in the formation of the Locomondo sound. Their new album has entered the Greek charts in August 2005 and a cover version of a Greek traditional song called "Frangosyriani" was a big summer hit.
