Innovative pianist, composer, arranger and singer, Muriel Marco embarked on a journey as a young woman from Argentina to South Africa with the desire to explore and discover the roots of rhythm.
She studied at the University of Cape Town, completing her degree in composition and arrangement with distinction in Ethnomusicology. Muriel is a founding member of the world music/Afro-tropical band Tucan Tucan, and has written and arranged most of their original music.
With her trio, Muriel explores Argentinian folklore styles such as Chacarera, Zamba, Milonga; traditional as well as modern Tango compositions and Boleros from Central and South America. This trio gives an intriguing, original, non-intrusive atmosphere to restaurants, hotels as well as wedding receptions where background music is desired.
