From Mexico City, Marco Mares is a singer-songwriter who’s trying to break the pre-established roads and search for new ways to create fresh and honest pop, which he successfully showcased in his debut album Para Ella (2014). Mares brings an exciting performance packed with audience-artist interaction full of fun, funky pop mixed with romantic lyrics in Spanish. His latest single, “Flaquita” (2017), speaks about love having no size or labels. This catchy reggae-pop hit 130,000 streams on Spotify just three weeks after its release. New singles are on the way as Mares continues to expand his career to several countries. For several weeks he has been positioned on Spotify’s Peru Top 50 Viral playlist on the first spots, as well as on Mexico's Top 50 Viral. Mares’ soulful music reflects on love in its purest form.
