Marlin Ramazzini is a Juno Award Nominee and recipient of the Vancouver Inspirational Latin Award and Guatemalan Cultural Association Award. She is one of the most versatile and accomplished Latin singers on the West Coast, with a warm and sensuous voice that can tease out the essence of any song.
Originally from Guatemala, she studied with several of the greatest Cuban musicians such as the Buena Vista Social Club’s Omara Portuondo and also learned to play percussion and marimba from master musicians.
Marlin settled in Vancouver in 1990, where she quickly became a pillar of the lively Latin scene, working with its leading artists. The Marlin Ramazzini Band has toured around the world and played in major concert venues and festivals across Canada.
