Mario Biondi's deep and warm voice recalls the great interpreters of soul and rhythm and blues music. He's Europe's biggest soul jazz nowadays.

Born in Bitetto, Italy, the son of a popular song singer, during his youth sang in various small choirs. Years after he accompanied Franco Califano, Peppino Di Capri, Fred Bongusto, Rosario Fiorello and others on their Concert tours.

After a long series of participations with Italian and international artists like Incognito during 2006 he achieved success with the Schema Records album Handful of Soul.  Now he's touring all over the world - and sells out every venue from London's Ronnie Scott's to Tokyos Blue Note.
