Album Notes
Marco Castillo made Canada his home in 2006 and Brazil wept. Following in his father’s footsteps who recorded dozens of albums and toured the world with "Trio Irakitan", Marco’s skills were honed at the feet of the best. Graduating with a B.A. in Music in Rio de Janeiro in 1994, he began touring South America with Brazil’s hottest bands. Since moving to Canada, Marco has been giving back as much as he has been given. His musical influence can be seen everywhere among his peers.
Whether it’s his work as a solo artist or collaborations, not the least of which is his full 8 piece "Brazilian Beats" band.
His intelligent treatment of the rich Brazilian styles on his Canadian debut CD, "Brazilian Season", ensured that it topped college radio charts for several weeks. Castillo’s much anticipated "Trip to Brazil", a sumptuous samba compilation Awarded World recording of the year WCMA-2012.

“Zabelê”, 2014 Marco’s new release brings 10 original eclectic songs in a perfect and diverse mix of uplifting Latin-Jazz, World-Music.
From uncontrollable upbeat Samba to infectious funky grooves, Marco Castillo is the Latin/World Music ‘go to guy’.
1- Forró no Canadá - Forró is one of the most popular Brazilian styles. This song talks about music that can melt the snow and warm up the frigid North American inhospitable winter temperatures.

2- Zabelê - A classic "samba de roda" style where the "cavaquinho" and "batucada" perfectly bring the spirit of the Brazilian way of life.

3- Aboio Triste - A sad lament revealing the saga of the Brazilians in the Northest who struggle without water.

4- Quem é Baião - Baião is the basis of Forró, which is typically from the Northest. The song talks about the origin of the name Baião, while honouring the icons Luiz Gonzaga and Humberto Teixeira.

5- Samba Carioca - People who are born in Rio de Janeiro are called Cariocas. This song is beautiful jazz samba about the unique people from Rio, where the bossa nova was created to conquer the world.

6- City of Wonders - An intro for Samba Funk & Futebol. The poetry and soft melody delicately intertwine and give the listener the feeling of unwinding by the beach front.

7- Samba Funk & Futebol - The Brazilian passion for soccer culminate with the "Goal" scream of victory. Special guest Bubba B. The MC.

8- Flying over - An invitation to a relaxing Trip to Brazil and its lavish beaches. A "Partido alto" style of instrumental jazz samba.

9- Tão Zen - A jazzy instrumental samba which will transport you to an exclusive state of mind.

10- A Horinha do Baião - The proof that we are the music, and that it constantly flows though
our veins. A breathtaking mad science experiment.
