Torcuato Mariano


Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina and growing up in Brazil, Torcuato Mariano started his music studies at the early age of 14. In Brazil he toured as guitarist with Sergio Mendez, Ivan Lins. He also played and recorded with singers Djavan, Gal Costa and saxophonist Leo Gandelman.

His debut album Paradise Station was released on Windham Hill in 1994. His further albums are Last Look (1995), Diary (2004) and Lift Me Up (2005). His hiatus between albums is explained by the fact that he retreated behind the scenes as A&R director of EMI Brazil, where he stayed until 2002.

His contemporary restart So Far From Home (2009) was launched on the independent label NuGroove Music. Joined by top-notch musicians Vinnie Colaiuta (drums), Neil Stubenhaus (bass), Davi Feldman (piano) and many more, this album was considered a success. Torcuato composed all songs with the exception of Tell Me Your Dreams, which he co-wrote with Andre Vasconcelos.

Torcuato can be seen featured in “Mona Ki Ngi Xica” Song Around The World.
