Argentinian singer, composer and keyboard player Muriel Marco is set to dazzle South African audiences with the launch of her EP in the month of October 2017.
Known for her Jazz and World musical styles, Marco is ready to impress her Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban fans with her latest offering: Muriel Marco – No Direction (ND) Project. Having performed as part of international group Tucan Tucan, as well as releasing her very own music, the Muriel Marco – ND Project sees Muriel composing and playings music with no boundaries regarding genre and instrumentation.
ND Project music is well rooted on Marco’s Argentinian, Latin, African and Jazz background but Alternative and even Pop music influences emerge in the compositions. From Tango to Maskandi, Swing to Chacarera, Mbaqanga to Toba lullaby, expect a vibrant, original project that will ensure a unique experience. This musical experience will be enhanced by the skilled musicians Shaun Johannes, Justin Bellairs and Kevin Gibson with guest artist Ronan Skillen on tablas and percussion.
At 19 year of age Marco embarked on a journey from Argentina to South Africa to study English where she automatically fell in love with Southern African music styles. It’s these styles, together with her love for Jazz and Argentinian Folklore Music, that inspired Marco to develop the Muriel Marco – ND Project. “South African Jazz lovers will be transported into my world in which creativity, unheard sounds and feelings collide.”
