Corciolli

Corciolli was born in São Paulo, Brazil on January 8, 1968. At the age of 13 he began his musical studies on the piano, with Nair Tabet, a disciple of Magdalena Tagliaferro. Parallel to a growing interest in electronic synthesizers, he entered the jazz universe and the world of Brazilian popular music (MPB). In 1986, he began working as a professional musician, dividing his time between the School of Architecture and a musical career, playing with bassist Celso Pixinga and the Spirit Gypsy group.

In 1993 Corciolli released his first solo album All That Binds Us, creating the Azul Music label, which has since established itself as one of the most respected independent companies in the music industry. In 1995, inspired by ancient Latin texts and alchemy studies, he produced the acclaimed album Unio Mystica, which features a unique blend of Gregorian chants, ethereal melodies on piano and orchestral arrangements. The CD was released in several countries, receiving the apostolic blessing of His Holiness, Pope John Paul II.

In 1996 Corciolli joined with the Tibetan Monks of Gaden Shartse at the Latin America Memorial (SP), recording the CD The New Moon Of East, an innovative merging of Tibetan sacred songs with the music of a Western artist.

In the following years Corciolli produced and released several albums as a solo artist and special projects. Highlights include Exotique (1998), Unio Celestia (1999) and the TudoAzul (2001) Collection - 10 albums of healing and meditation inspired by alternative therapies and ancestral knowledge. The song Oration from the album Unio Celestia, was chosen as the theme song of the novel These Women (TV soap) and Toledo was used as the soundtrack for the presentation of Brazilian gymnast Angélica Kvieczynski in 2007.

By invitation from the magazine Caras Pan American Games, Corciolli's music is included in two major collections, Zen and Caras World Music Guys. Sales total over 8 million CDs sold in newsstands across Brazil.

Corciolli has released albums in more than 40 countries, accounting for nearly 2 million in sales. His music is included in several international compilations alongside artists such as Hans Zimmer, Vangelis, Enigma, Sarah Brightman, was Alan Parsons Project and Luciano Pavarotti, among others.

In recent years, in addition to his original work, Corciolli has dedicated himself to composing soundtracks for Brazilian cinema and the production of new artists.
