João Spencer (bass), Léo Vrillaud (keys) Vicente Booth (guitar) and João Romão (drums) crossed paths with each other between academic studies, music studies, trips to Hot Club in search of jazz wisdom and, specially, night clubs where they surfed the waves of contemporary hip-hop and multiple electronic speeds. Mazarin starts from jazz, surrounds a classic boom bap, but features a distinct musical identity resulting from countless hours on stage, in constant search of a unique, individual sound that doesn’t copy accents from Chicago or London, and that proudly dashes the southern palate, from where they come, and the capital’s contemporary swing, which they adopted. Mazarin are from here, no doubt about that.
