-The new french voice of Brazil -

Santa Teresa, no doubt the most beautiful area of Rio de Janeiro, provides the backdrop for the recording of Chaque Jour, Marie So's first album.

Her path crosses with various delightfully different, often unexpected people and takes her to Brazil for the first time in 2003.

A few months before, having moved to live in Paris, she meets Christophe Trottet, guitarist and song writer, who passes on to her his love of Brazilian music.Very soon they create a musical duet with a repertoire of Bossa Nova and Samba classics (standards).

To perfect their art, they decide to spend three months in Brazil to learn about the language and the roots of the music that had captured their imagination.

They leave with just a backpack, a guitar and a handful of their own songs.

Once in Brazil, they meet Chico Chagas, arranger, pianist and talented accordionist, who takes an interest in their work. He offers to take care of the musical arrangement for their compositions.

Marie So's album begins to take form.

2004 - one year later, Marie So and Christophe meet again with Chico in Rio de Janeiro to record their CD in Brazil - the very birthplace of the source of their inspiration.

Marie So's musical path has led her to interpret many different musical genres in the past.

Her father, Jean-Claude Gil, a radio presenter (Sud Radio, Radio Andorre...), it seemed natural for Marie So to embark on a singing career.She takes her first steps on the stage at the age of 14 alongside her guitarist brother.She sings Brel, Aznavour, Brassens... and very quickly falls in love with the emotional rapport she discovers between artist and audience.

Meanwhile, she attends classes at the Academy of Music and learns music theory and vocal technique.And she takes to the road where she sings solo in cafés and bars with her guitar.

She gradually broadens her musical horizons thanks to the many different artists she meets while touring and attending music courses all over France : The Stanislavski method, with Boris Rabey in Montpellier, jazz and Brazilian music at the ATLA school Paris, à capela singing technique in the “Theatre de la Gerbe", Montpellier. Marie So discovers jazz and world music and sings in various salsa, jazz, afro jazz and haversack formations.

At the age of 18, she joins a vocal quartet "Les Voix Liées", based in Montpellier, for 7 years, which enables her to turn professional. With "Les Voix Liées" she performs à Capela the songs of Claude Nougaro.

At the age of 26, Marie So has just signed her first contract with Sergent Major for her album Chaque Jour.

2009 She's recording the second album... not to be missed !
