Biography
Marcelo D2 is the innovator behind the most seamless blend of samba and hip-hop. Throughout his 25-year long, multi-million selling international career, he has been a force to be reckoned with both live and in the studio. His lyrics take the audience to a place of criticism that stems from hope, and social observation that leads to a call for change through self-reliance, awareness and positivity, a message that
has taken him all over the world.

After so much sonic experimentation, he's back to the core elements of his musical fusion: the sound of Brazilian rhythms, samba-jazz trios of the 60's he's always loved and often sampled, and everything hip-hop. But this time, Marcelo brings his sound to a jazzy acoustic trio setting, both sophisticated andstripped down at the same time.
SambaDrive is the dynamic trio capable of accompanying D2 on this adventurous endeavour, seasoned and versatile musicians able to navigate a wide spectrum of styles fluently, with unmistakable groove.
Mauro Berman (bass) and Lourenço Monteiro (drums) are one of the most prominent and in-demand
rhythm sections in Rio de Janeiro and have travelled the world making music, while Pablo Lapidusas is a
piano powerhouse, be it as a solo piano artist or working with multiple ensembles in different countries.
