Mario Biondi’s unmistakable deep voice is warm and sensual, yet clear and confident. Born in Catania, Sicily, Mario was a lover of soul music from a young age. His breakthrough single “This Is What You Are” (2006) was picked up by influential DJs such as Norman Jay and Craig Charles. It became a huge hit in northern soul clubs and could be heard on discerning dancefloors worldwide.
In 2006, Schema Records released Mario’s debut album, Handful of Soul, a wonderful fusion of soul and jazz. The album went platinum in Italy and received widespread critical acclaim.
Mario has worked with such illustrious figures as Incognito (with whom he performed at the Royal Albert Hall in 2013), Earth Wind and Fire and Chaka Khan, and his albums Sun (2013), Best of Soul (2016) and Brasil (2016) have consolidated his reputation as Italy’s foremost soul and jazz sensation.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Mario Biondi are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
