Marcos Ariel is in the forefront of the 90,s Brazilian musician. He is indefatigable as a pianist, singer and composer, with his musical style purely "Carioca" (one who is a native of Rio de Janeiro) splashed with a passion for Classical and Jazz. As a player he is swift and precise transcending genuine warmth that can only be Marcos Ariel. In his home of Rio de Janeiro, music flourished. His father encouraged him to listen and absorb the masters: Bach, Beethoven, Mozart and Chopin. He later developed an admiration for fellow countryman, Hermeto Pascoal and American contemporary Jazzman Chick Corea. Marcos Ariel recorded his first album in 1980 "Bambu" which was simultaneously released in France by Globo Records and England by wathmusic and Faroutrecordings. After the success of Bambu, he released in Brazil and the USA the award-winning album Terra do Índio. Terra do Índio was chosen by Jazziz Magazine as one of the best albums of Jazz.
