Marauak, 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 the stages and streets of Brazil 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 Marauak you feel the influences of classic Brazilian Bossa Nova, Samba and Contemporary (MPB) along with a combination of Reggae, Dance Hall 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 Portuguese and English, and reinterpretations of other artists. The result is a unique experience for his audience.
Marauak currently lives in San Diego, California where he performs as a solo artist, as a duo in Bossa Lounge Project, and as the leader of the bands Raggabond.
