Mariana Aydar can be easily located. Where there's good music, there she is, either in a traditional samba jamming, in a gig at the outskirts of town, in the studios, during Carnival, in Sao Paulo, Rio or Bahia. Since she was born in Sao Paulo, music is the air that she breathes. Her father, producer and multi-instrumentalist Mario Manga, was one of the integrants of Preme, an avant-garde group of the 80s that managed to couple irreverence and quality. Her mother, Bia Aydar, worked for many years with a variety of artists from all corners of the country. So, since she was a little girl, her natural habitat was the front stage and the backstage, the dressing rooms and the spotlights, the rehearsals and the recording studios and, mingling in this universe, she learned from observation.
