At 12, she started playing the guitar as an autodidact, today a key instrument in her composition process. Later, her voice and the electric bass also gained an important role in MARO’s musical activity.
At the age of 20, she started her studies at Berklee College of Music (Boston) with the European Tour Scholarship from the school and three other scholarships from Portugal. It was then that MARO began presenting herself regularly as a singer and songwriter.
