Unexpected Italy - Mario Biondi In Concert (Italy)


With a trademark deep voice reminiscent of Barry White, Isaac Hayes, and Lou Rawls, singer and composer Mario Biondi makes music passionately, while at the same time lighthearted and ironic. Biondi puts a new spin on jazz—his Italian heritage and love of soul music shaping his unique style.

Biondi worked as a session singer for years before he had the opportunity to be Ray Charles’s supporting act, but his first big break came in 2004 with the single “This Is What You Are.” Originally planned for release only in Japan, the song garnered the attention of well-known European DJ Norman Jay and received acclaim worldwide. In 2006, Biondi released his platinum debut album Handful Of Soul, recorded with the High Five Quintet. In 2010, Mario clocked-in thousands of miles for a sold-out winter and summer tour where he performed with his 15 piece orchestra to thrilled audiences of all ages.
