Marlin Ramazzini

Marlin Ramazzini Juno Award Nomenee is one of the most versatile and accomplished Latin singers on the West Coast, with a warm and sensuous voice that can tease out the essence of any song.

Growing up in Guatemala, she was inspired to start singing by listening to Cuban son, cha cha cha, mambo, and other hot rhythms on the radio. After winning a major talent competition at the age of 12, Marlin realized that her destiny was to make music. She studied with several of the greatest Cuban singers - such as the Buena Vista Social Club’s Omara Portuondo ” who helped refine her vocal technique, and also learned to play percussion and marimba from master musicians. In the ‘80s, she toured in Russia, Mexico, Canada and throughout Central America.
