Dj Tudo is the alias of Alfredo Bello, a Brazilian music producer who runs a record label Mundo Melhor.

The label releases "field recordings" of traditional Brazilian music. He is also a much in-demand music producer who has recorded or performed with Lee Scratch Perry, Adrian Sherwood, Otto, Apollo 9, Ligiana with bands Owner Zica and Pedra Branca. Produced albums for Junio Barreto, Gero Camilo, Cérebro Eletrônico, porcas Borboletas and Ortinho (quoting a few). With Simone Sou and Marcelo Monteiro, had the "Projeto Cru", whose CD is the soundtrack to the movie by Beto Brant "Love second B. Schanberg and will track the upcoming movie by Beto Brant in 2011.

Renowned for his trips to the "discovery" of Brazil, since the year 2000, Alfredo travels the country registering manifestations of traditional Brazilian culture. Created in 2004 the label "Mundo Melhor(Better World)" with the aim of making public the collection, where has released 20 albums. All this added and mixed, there is the figure of "dj Tudo", a character marked by its particular sound trip.

 Dj Tudo, studies the trajectory of music from West Africa to the New World. On "Nos Quintais do Mundo" ("In the Courtyards of the World"), released on his own label, Mundo Melhor, he's literalizing the connections. The album was recorded around the world, in studios on three continents, and on the street: in a single track there's maracatu rhythm from carnival in Recife, Brazil, with horns, bass and guitar suggesting Afrobeat, then some singing by Ahmet Male in a Senegalese Pular dialect recorded on a trip to Africa.
