Brazillian born musician and composer Marco Castillo releases his newest CD Zabele this Saturday night (Mar15) at the Park Theatre. He stopped by Jazz After 9 to talk with host Neil Coligan.


When Marco Castillo left Brazil, the samba capital of the world lost an amazing artist and one of its most passionate voices. Canada, however, embraced him with open arms. His intelligent treatment of the various Brazilian styles on his first CD "Brazilian Season" topped college radio charts for several weeks leaving his new fans clamouring for his 2011 release "Trip to Brazil", a well blended samba compilation of originals and covers produced by Marco himself.

Since arriving in Winnipeg, Castillo has influenced many local musicians, contributing immensely to the spread of Brazilian music and culture. He has literally changed the music scene in the multicultural jazz capital of Canada.

The CD release concert for Marco's brand new CD Zabele is this Saturday night (Mar 15) at The Park Theatre at 8:00 PM.
