MARINELLA is a true and original talent. With a deep, rich voice, a charming smile and a truly stylish performance, she brings a touch of class to any event or venue she performs.

Originally from Europe, she has studied music ever since childhood. As she likes to say herself “I started singing before I was able to speak!”.

Born to musically passionate parents and lovers of classical and opera, she has had a sophisticated musical influence from a very early age and formal musical education, studying piano for nine years.

Her first jazz attempts as a solo singer date back to the early student years where she opened her musical horizons, getting to know people from the jazz and cabaret circles.

The young performer learns from the best. Her idols are Sarah Vaughn, Ella Fitzgerald and Aretha Franklin, and they became her virtual vocal coaches.

Many acting and singing performances lead to her developing her own style and presence. Her own stage signature.

In the space of a few years, MARINELLA is firmly on the national music scene. In amongst her achievements are televised performances with the national Big Band orchestra, local and international music contests and festivals, where she claims top prizes.

Throughout her career MARINELLA has performed in numerous venues around Europe, as a soloist as well as in collaboration with other musicians, which has given her a chance to experiment with different styles and sounds.

In recent years, the singer has lived in London, where she has had many opportunities to meet and work with great musicians, to expand her repertoire and enrich her portfolio with a number of styles of music.

Her latest passion is Latin, or more precisely Cuban music, where the richness of rhythms and the abundance of styles fascinate her.

Her performances in Santiago de Cuba were very well received, which has inspired her to strengthen her musical tights with Cuba and the cradle of Cuban son.

As much as MARINELLA stays true to her creative style, she loves experimenting and exploring musical opportunities constantly. From taking part in an a contemporary music project with vanguard African musicians, to performing the music of George Gershwin, accompanied by a chamber orchestra in a live concert.

The cosmopolitan persona of the singer and her multicultural influences, her high professional standards and talent make her a versatile modern artist, who brings style, tradition and depth to her music and has an appeal to a very wide audience.
