Marcelo Delacroix is a real child of the south of Brazil. His ancestors came from France, Holland, and Syria, and in his music you can hear the various musical roots that are common in the Pampa's, as the South of Brazil is called, together with Uruguay and Argentina. Marcelo studied at the School of Music, at Ospa and the Institute of Arts at UFRGS, university of Porto Alegre. He was part of diverse groups, playing from medieaval and renaissance music, brazilian popular music from the thirties and forties, but also comtemporary music. He recorded a few CDs and was regulaly nominated, and awarded with the Asorianos Price, the regional Grammy Awards.
Apart from his solo carreer, that really took off in the year 2000 with the release of his first CD, Marcelo works with many dance and theater companies, that was also awarded for his contributions. Finally, Marcelo works as a music teacher for many educational institutions on the outskirts of Porto Alegre. His workshops with the children of Porto Alegre are something special; from the smallest of ages, Marcelo gets all involved in singing and playing instruments.
So you see, Marcelo is a true multi-talented musician that guarantees a night of soulful pop-music from the Pampa's tradition.
The European roots, mixed with Brazilian modern music, makes his music a truely universal blend of popular music.
