There’s something different about how Detroit-based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Marbrisa interprets music. 

Latin, jazz, funk, and folk music come together on Marbrisa’s debut solo record, Ciclos. Not unlike the transportive work of Brazilian sonic chameleon Seu Jorge or New York’s foot-stomping gypsy punks Gogol Bordello, Marbrisa also masters the art of fusing the traditional with the contemporary.

This  LA born, Detroit bred singer-songwriter started her musical journey in Latin

America at age 23. As an ambitious self taught musician, she got her chops by accompanying the locals on their busking trips throughout buses, street markets, and local cafeterias. For this reason, she attributes the two years that she spent living in Guatemala as her main form of music school. 

 Upon her return to Detroit in 2015 she recorded her first solo album, Brisa Del Mar. The album featured musicians that she had met through busking in the NYC subways. She continued to develop her craft in Detroit while aggressively hitting the local music scene. It was then that she met her mentor Sean Blackman, who introduced her to the genre of world music. In 2017 she was nominated for a Detroit Music Award for outstanding vocalist in World Music.  


Passionate about learning the roots of various music genres, she traveled through Mexico and Cuba and performed extensively while studying with local music teachers for six months. 

After her travels she also started to dive deeper into the  the music of the motor city: Motown, jazz, soul and funk. Eager to get her multi-genre music recored, she sought out Steve Caldwell to produce her latest release, Ciclos. 

This recorded project included many of Detroit's top musicians, including Ron Otis on drums, James Simonson on bass, and Sean Blackman on guitar.  It explores a fusion of Latin, jazz, funk, soul and folk music styles. She released the album at Otus Supply (Ferndale) with her 10-piece all star Detroit line-up. Songs from the album have been featured on the local NPR station WDET, including Culture Shift , This Island Earth, and Rob Reinhart's Acoustic Cafe. The project helped her earn her first Detroit Music Award for Outstanding Songwriter in World Music in 2020. She is starting to nationally tour and currently lives in New Orleans doing a fusion of funk, Neo-soul, and Latin Music.
