Über Marcio Faraco
Marcio Faraco grew up an army brat, shuttling between the Brazilian towns of Recife, Belo Horizonte and Brasilia. It turned out to be the perfect education for an aspiring musician, exposing Faraco to a wide range of music styles such as toada, baiao and bossa nova -- though he was steeped first and foremost in choro and samba, thanks to his father. In time Faraco developed his own style, drawing on all his influences, and the result was 2000's Ciranda, a lovely and personal album that drew off songs Faraco had written over the course of many years. He followed that up with Interior in 2003.
