Locomondo were formed in 2003 in Athens by Markos Koumaris and Yannis Varnavas. Their songs featured on radio playlists across Europe as early as their debut. In 2005 they travelled to Jamaica to record with legendary trombonist Vin Gordon. This was the first time a Greek band had recorded in Jamaica. Two years later they were the opening band for Manu Chao in Malakasa. Since then, they have been steadily trending upward. They have released over nine albums and have performed in some of the biggest concert venues in Greece and abroad, including, among others, Germany, France, Italy, Bulgaria and Turkey.
