Marta Garrett Fatela
Marta studied music in her hometown of Lisbon, Portugal since she was seven years old and discovered jazz when she was thirteen as she began participating in Lisbon Jazz Summer School. During this time, she had the opportunity to play and work alongside recognized artists such as Mulgrew Miller, Greg Osby and Butch Morris. Her jazz career started in 2010 while she began her studies at the jazz school of Hot Clube de Lisboa. She then went on to pursue a bachelor’s in jazz during which she performed in various groups as well as in a guitar duo, Marta & Zé. The duo was a melting pot of music styles and they play arrangements of Brazilian, Portuguese, Pop, Rock and Jazz songs in venues that spanned from small bars and night clubs to non-profit associations and concert halls.
In September 2015 her career took a turn when she enrolled in the European Jazz Master’s Program, moving through Amsterdam, Berlin and Copenhagen over two years. She started writing her own music and taking in the influence of various teachers and fellow musicians, but staying true to her Portuguese upbringing. She completed her Master’s in June of 2017.
Grand Hyatt Tokyo warmly welcomes Marta to MADURO.
