Marco Calliari was born in Quebec, but he has never strayed far from his Italian roots. Growing up with his famiglia, he was surrounded with the melodies of the opera, until at age 14, he began to follow a very different sound: wild, screaming heavy metal! It is at that time that he co-founded, with his friends, one of the most interesting metal groups in Quebec, "Anonymus". In 2006, after more than 15 years and five solid albums, Marco ended this important musical adventure to fully throw himself into his own thriving solo career, which he began to pursue in 2003.
His first composition a festive album, Che La Vita, borders what can be called World Music, Jazz, poetic music, with all the lyrics and music written by Marco -- and all in Italian.
After this ground breaking success, Marco recorded his second solo album Mia Dolce Vita, 2006, in which he remakes his own versions of traditional Italian songs, including "L'italiano", "Bella Ciao" and "L'Americano".
Following his most recent album, Al Faro Est, and its tour, people around the world just keep on dancing, laughing, and singing along to Marco Calliari's on-stage energy. Be it in Canada, the USA, or in Europe, getting people on their feet is the rule wherever he goes. His contagious energy moves the audience in the colorful, festive, musical manner of the Italian carnival!
