Marcos Ariel presents his album MISSING IPANEMA


Marcos Ariel presents his new album MISSING IPANEMA, with 8 tracks showcasing his passion and affinity with his hometown, Rio de Janeiro, following the success of his previous albums AMERICAS and WAVE HUNTER.

All of Marcos Ariel's releases have received great reviews in newspapers and magazines, as well as great accolades from the audiences attending his concerts.

Marcos Ariel was born in February, right when the big Carnival celebration takes place, throughout the whole city of Rio.

Anyone born in Rio de Janeiro, already begins, at early age, to hear the sounds of samba and batucada, echoing throughout the city's streets and neighborhoods.  When he was a music student, Marcos Ariel used to go to the beaches of Ipanema, Copacabana, Leme and Leblon and that's how he started to get to know and fall in love with Bossa Nova.

In addition to classical music and Jazz, that were the soundtracks of his parents’ home, Marcos began to study and play Choro, which was the first musical genre born in Brazil, around 1860. Choro is the basis of Brazilian music as well, as Blues is the basis of American music.

The eight tracks on the album MISSING IPANEMA bring all these elements and musical foundations together, which were the source of inspiration for the creation of the album's compositions.

The album was recorded and mixed by drummer Roberto Marques, who also participated in the recordings of the Wave Hunter album, along with guitarist Eneas Marques.

Missing Ipanema is the 35th phonographic release by pianist and composer Marcos Ariel and in addition to Marcos Ariel on piano and keyboards and Roberto Marques on drums, two great guitarists masterfully participated on two tracks.  Marc Antoine is featured on Missing Ipanema and Mark Lambert is featured on the track Diguiri.

Playing bass, the highlight is Rômulo Duarte, Alex Rocha and Rodrigo Villa. On percussion, we had the pleasant surprise of having master Kenneth Dickerson’s participation.
