As anticipated, the concerts of Belgrade’s favorite Italian singer, Mario Biondi, caused great interest among his fans. For this reason, an agreement was reached between Mario and Musicology Barcaffe Sessions, so Mario Biondi will perform a third concert on October 5th. He will be singing on the 2nd, 3rd and 5th of October in Serbia’s capital, at the Novi Bitefartcafe club.
Mario Biondi’s unmistakable deep voice is warm and sensual, yet clear and confident. Born Mario Ranno, he cultivated his passion for music from a young age, listening alongside his father, the singer Stefano Biondi, later making his stage name a tribute to him.
A vast range of experience has made Mario the great artist he is today. He has sung in church choirs, been a session singer for niche labels, without neglecting his studies and speaking perfect English although he is a born and bred Sicilian from Catania. A lover of soul music, in 1988 he began supporting artists of international standing, including some of the calibre of the legendary Ray Charles.
This charming and very specific Italian vocalist has already performed twice in front of the Belgrade audience and every time the crowd was looking for more. So Mario is coming back to a place he already considers home.
“Belgrade is one of the cities where I feel like home and where the audience is always so passionate. I can not wait to see them again, “Biondi says.
Tickets for all the concerts in Belgrade are on sale and can be found at all Eventim and Ddtickets sale points, as well as online through their websites.
In addition to the Mario Biondi concerts, here are three other performers of the upcoming season – the flamenco spectacle from Cuba – Ecos Company, Knower band and Keziah Jones.
