bio 

MARIO MARAUAK (Ma-ra-Wak), a singer, songwriter and guitar player, was born in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil. The son of an African father and a Brazilian mother.

Marauak's music reflects his years performing on stages and streets of Brazil and USA and his exposure to a wide range of music, from folk to popular and from the profane to the sacred. Embedded in Marauak's soul is the pulse of Afro-brazilian rhythms and the power of chants.

Listening to his music you feel the influences of classic Brazilian Bossa Nova, Samba and Contemporary (MPB) along with a combination of Reggae, Dancehall and Hip Hop. His greatest strength is a rare musical fusion of Brazilian Classics with America's African-Influenced beats (Jazz, Soul, Funk).  Marauak's repertoire is made of originals, in English and Portuguese, and reinterpretations of other artists. The result is an unique experience for his audience.

MARAUAK currently lives in San Diego, California.

Contact us about booking him for you next special event, party, wedding, club, or festival.
