MUSIC | MARCELO DUANI
VINYL DJ. MUSIC CURATOR. LABEL OWNER. PRODUCER
In my nearly 20 year career in the music and entertainment industry, music has allowed me the opportunity to see, hear, do, and be a part of things I never thought were imaginable. As a music industry professional, DJ, Producer, Record Label owner, Event Director and all around lover of all things Afro - Jazz - Latin - World - and Funk! I've criss crossed the world through various music projects, compilations, and mix tapes, as well as produced tracks, and curated soundtracks for hotels, restaurants, museums and lounges. I have been fortunate to be the subject of various college course studies as a philanthropist of afro-latin-culture, the music industry, as well as a connoisseur of various styles of music collected in my vinyl collection over the years.
Over the last 10 years, I have continued my quest of music and entertainment by forming the only independent Brazilian record label (Afro Baile) in the USA; which in turned opened the door to 5 top 10 albums, worldwide distribution and a number of awards. Since starting the record label, Afro Baile has grown up from being a Brazilian Label, to being a Latin American label focusing all latin music from across South America, the Caribbean and beyond. Afro Baile's journey of a label, event company and production house with an emphasis on culture has been a life long dream come true. With my journey far from complete, I have taken the role of director and founder of some of the largest festivals and events in Arizona including the Award Winning Brazilian Day Festival and Award Winning Carnaval do Brazil Concert Event. Our latest endeavors include our newly launch Bomba Festival, and Bomba Club music series and new merchandise line.
But where it all started with me was through the 1's and 2's, a mixer and microphone, DJing parties, events, festivals, concerts, tours, and events to the tune over more than 1,000 gigs. My mix of Afro - Latin - Jazz - Funk - Brazilian - Beats and Soulful treats (ALL VINYL), has allowed me to create a sound that resonates with crowds big and small, old and young, and those who never knew how much they loved a culture groove.
