Jarina De Marco was born in the Dominican Republic and spent the early years of her life traveling Latin America with her parents. The Dominican / Brazilian family performed as part of the World Music scene and spent extended periods of time in remote parts of the Amazonian rainforest and Dominican countryside cataloguing indigenous sounds and rhythms. When Jarina became old enough to speak, she began singing and performing with her family as they traveled throughout the world.
These sounds surrounding Jarina during her childhood served as her early music education and travel with her to this day. Jarina sings and speaks in four different languages, often incorporating traditional sonic pallets with modern beat makers.
