Mario Luma music reflects his years performing on streets of Brazil and USA and his exposure to a wide range of music, from folk to popular and from the profane to the sacred. Embedded in Marauak’s soul is the pulse of Afro-brazilian rhythms and the power of chants.
Listening to Mario Luma’s music you feel the influences of classic Brazilian Bossa Nova, Samba and Contemporary (MPB) along with a combination of Reggae, Dancehall and Hip Hop. His greatest strength is a rare musical fusion of Brazilian Classics with America’s African-Influenced beats (Jazz, Soul, Funk). Mario’s repertoire is made of originals, in English and Portuguese, and reinterpretations of other artists. The result is an unique experience for his audience.
