Chico, from Germany, was given a guitar by his mum for his 4th birthday. His first guitar was the beginning of his musical development. It gave him the chance to explore music and discover his passion for making music. Chico has experimented with different styles of World Music in his music career, which you can hear in his diverse productions and compositions. He collaborated with many artists worldwide from countries like Cuba , Cameroon Italy and the US.
Jamba was born in a small town in Brazil, just outside Sao Paolo. After being introduced to the piano as a child, he promptly set about dedicating his life to the instrument with such a fierce commitment that now, still only in his mid 20s, the New York based singer/songwriter/musician has amassed the kind of credentials seasoned artists twice his age would be proud to have on their resume. There’s even a Jamba fan club on http://www.myspace.com/jambafanclub
Mano Reza – Funk-1 (TheConstructPart2). Please visit him at:
This track is from a conceptual jazz album featureing funky, esoteric instrumentals with recurring themes in multiple styles called, ‘The Acid Jazz Project’. Please visit him at: http://www.myspace.com/acidjazzproject
Mano is a great supporter of independent music. Singer-songwriter Mano was born in D.C. but raised in New York City. In a beginner’s guitar class in high school it became clear to Mano and his instructor that he had a natural ability to play and a good ear for music.
