Doctor Marcio

Percussionist and composer from Buenos Aires, Argentina based in Hamburg, Germany.

Marcio's musical approach is influenced by his studies of different ethnic music traditions. He belongs to a new generation of contemporary percussionists that feel at home in a wide variety of musical situations, retaining at the same time his own voice.

Marcio began playing percussion at the age of five and over the years studied drumset, percussion and piano in Buenos Aires. In his early professional years he played percussion and drums in local bands as well as in film, TV, theater and contemporary dance productions. In the late 80's he toured extensively in Argentina and Brazil with the group "Comedia".
