MARINO SOUNDWAVES’ music is from the heart and soul. It’s a musical melting-pot with its roots in the Blues.
To quote MARINO from a recent radio interview…”Although I’m fluent in other musical languages, Blues is my mother tongue”.
On drums, Joseph Armenta brings in the Sly Stone grooves while congero Fabio Freiberg supports with his Rosario Street Rhythms, reminiscent of early Santana.
Ramzi Butros on bass and keyboards glues this together with melodic taste and precision.
All of this, together with the naked emotion of MARINO’s guitar magic, makes it a musical journey well worth the ride for musicians and listeners alike.
