Who: Sheida Mohammad
What: Todo Se Mueve (Everything Moves)
Todo Se Mueve began as most passion projects seem to do as a simple hobby. Having a lot of musician friends, Sheida began booking shows around the LA area a couple years ago. At the end of 2013, she put on a show at the Witzend, calling it “Todo Se Mueve in Venice". From there the title just stuck.
Presenting a few shows here and there she got the attention of the people at Touch Vinyl and so began the start of a beautiful collaboration. Since April 2014, Todo Se Mueve has been taking lead on the Untouched Music Series: free shows featuring local artists every Friday night for a month. Currently in its fourth installment, the events draw out a dedicated local community and bring music to a rather quiet Westside.
Todo Se Mueve currently functions as a not for profit entity very similar to Beating Lights' current state of life. The simple satisfaction of bringing people together through music and hoping connections and collaborations spark is what keeps Sheida going.
The Untouched Music Series this month has 3 shows left, so make sure you check it out!
