Márcio is a Brazilian master acoustic guitarist and singer-songwriter who crafts songs in the samba, bossa, nova baiāo and chord traditions of his homeland, while throwing in dashes of Portuguese fado, African and Cuban rhythms and most recently, chanson. He seamlessly finds the delicate balance between simplicity and complexity, tradition and originality while winning over his audiences with his undeniable charm and utter virtuosity. Márcio has been Paris-based for the last 20 years. His latest album is titled "Cajueiro" and was released last year. The Márcio Faraco Quartet is Márcio Faraco (guitar, vocals), fellow Brazilians Gersen Saeki (bass) and Julio Gonçalves (percussion) and French accordionist, Lionel Suarez.
"Márcio Faraco has a wonderful, almost ethereal voice and he wield its charm to draw the listener into his sound world." - World Music Report
