“In all  friends a coffe”

Back in Montevideo, Mario began his career as a singer/songwriter with influences ranging from Eduardo Mateo to Jobim, from Djavan to Caetano, Bola de nieve to Stephen Bishop, Sarah Bettens to Pino Daniele not to mention Renato Russo.

Junto a Nicolás Mola y Martín Buscaglia conforma los primeros grupos con los que Mario toca en pubs de Uruguay. En esos años Mario también toca el bajo y compone en Costumbres, la Waca-waca one more band y Samantha y sus macacos, Junto a Samantha Navarro, Luciano Supervielle, Daniel “Tatita” Marquez y Gonzalo Brown.

Together with Nicolás Mola and Martín Buscaglia his first musical bands are founded and with them begins an early career of live music playing in the pubs of Uruguay. In those days, Mario was also a bass player during which time he composed a whole repertoire for  bands such as Costumbres, la Waca-waca one more band and Samantha y sus macacos, contributing as well to the works of Samantha Navarro, Luciano Supervielle, Daniel “Tatita” Marquez and Gonzalo Brown.


In 1994 Mario Maeso is offered a scholarship to go and study musicology in Paris at the Université de Paris VIII in the Saint Denis area of the city, thus bringing forth a new step in terms of fresh encounters and opening the door to a whole new world of music. There, he composes, plays and records with Pablo Cueco, Leo Melo, Gabriel Roda, Tryo, Minino Garay and Lalo Zanelli. It was notably during this period that the creation of Camdombe-pop group Radar took place, together with Pablo Mendez, Daniel "ito" Bravo, Bruno Angel and Daniel "Dédé" Díaz with whom he would go on to record a self-made album titled "Buen Viaje" or "Have a Safe Trip" and filled with original songs.


   Upon arriving to Barcelona, Mario Maeso joins Avenida Brasil. With this band he  would go on to record an album titled "Balanço Samba- Funk", composing almost all of the songs in Portuguese. Nowadays, Mario can be found working on a new album titled "Café" -his first solo project-  a synthesis of all his musical experience and a compilation of original and cover titles in Spanish, French, Portuguese and English. On this latest piece of work, accompanied by the simple percussion of a cajón and a bass and fender Rodhes guitar, Mario gently sits down and has a coffee with friends; Martín Buscaglia, Gema4, Rubem Dantas, Minino Garay, Daniel Bravo, Fulvio Paredes, Cece Giannotti, Tryo, Jp Dupeyron, Krishoo Montieux,  are among the guests of honour on this occasion.


Mario Maeso's original compositions have been recorded and/or performed by artists such as Marina Mautinos, Jorge Drexler, Leo Minax, Martín Buscaglia, Gonzalo Brown, Rocio Faks y Juan Mari Montes.
