"Echoes of castanets dancing on the rhythmic fury of Flamenco guitars". My statement, my music, my purpose in life was not a choice to be made, but rather a path that needed to be explored. Argentina being the soil of my roots, my mother was a Flamenco dancer and instructor during the pregnancy of her first child. She carried on to the last possible days before stepping down to prepare for the next phase of her life. Upon arriving home with babe in arms she takes a deep breath, gathers her thoughts and places her new bundle of joy in a bassinet nearby. Moving towards the Magnavox Console she takes her favorite record, drops the stylus, laces on her castanets and the rest is my story! -Marzz-

Releasing the spirit that defines my soul through music is the international language that can be absorbed by everyone.
Building my guitars for everyone. Unity begins with rhythm. Rhythm is a pulse. We all have a pulse...

When one day becomes a copy of the past day and the next day seems to follow the same pattern, I make the change happen.
Just let go and be free if even for a short while. We all deserve a moment of clarity and peace.
Nervous, shitless and exhilarated all at once!
This has many angles that can be approached with varying degrees of outcome. In a narrowed scope, its all the same really. We're basically doing the same with what we have as our ancestors. Music is their interpretation of the current "vibe" or "climate". To improve one thing is to decline another. It is the cycle we are all a part of and will continue to be in the future. There is nothing to improve or change that it hasn't done already on its own. Enjoy the ride...!
Marvelous, enlightening and spirited! I have always wanted to get my music out to the world to hear. I accept all views and critiques: good, bad, ugly, beautiful, hurtful and uplifting. Another persons view or characterization of you does not create who you are but, if accepted with an open mind, I may help define you.
Not being able to bring out what I hear in my head at the moment.
Yes of course. I head out to the local bar and clubs when musicians are performing live and give them feedback on what I've experienced from their music. Both good and sometimes not so good. I believe it is important to be honest and sincere with musicians and artists alike. We are putting ourselves out there "naked" for everyone to see. It's not that easy...
Same qualities musicians had in the past. Nothing has changed. You don't have to be perfect or the best to be felt or understood. Be honest and be yourself. That will cut through the mix louder and with more vigor than any gimmick or side-show you think is needed. It is not in our right to criticizes someone's artistry but let's be real about it. If it sucks, it sucks. If its good they will let you know. Encourage those who comment on your music to spread the word and share with others. Be proactive and stay engaged with your current audience.
