Brazilian Guitarist And Singer Marcio Faraco says
Lula Music and Arts Centre, Uma Nota Culture and Small World Music Society join forces to present Brazilian-born, Paris-based guitarist, vocalist and composer Marcio Faraco.

Marcio Faraco

Though living in France for more than 20 years, Márcio Faraco stays true to the traditional music of Brazil, melding the language of the samba, bossa nova and choro in his evocative songs. While his music has drawn many comparisons with masters such as Chico Buarque, Milton Nascimento, João Gilberto and Caetano Veloso – Marcio is also adept at incorporating Portuguese fado, African rhythms, and Cuban beats. Featuring delicate and masterful guitar work, his vocals are beautiful and engaging.

With lyrics in both Portuguese and French, Faraco’s seventh release Cajueiro is "an album of monumental architecture, artistic caresses and sensuousness.” -- The World Music Report.

Marcio performed at Lula Lounge in 2013 with Philippe Baden Powell on piano. For this special concert, he returns with his quartet adding bass, percussion and accordion to his own guitar and vocals.
