Album Notes
Mario DaSilva, a Brazilian guitarist has been performing all his life. He chose guitar as a result of Beatlemania and other 60's rock influences. While still in Brazil, he studied with veteran conductor and arranger Maestro Leo Peracchi, guitarists Salvador Violla and Edmar Fenicio.

Mario has truly developed as an unique, remarkably soulful and creative nylon guitarist. He is the best in the world with his impressions of top 40 radio hits of the 60's, 70's and 80's.

Mario latest three releases are: "Meet Mario", "Christmas Love and Light", and "Mario DaSilva Plays the Beatles (for everyone)". His albums are played nationwide by National Public Radio as musical intervals, and the talk show Delilah After Dark, from Seattle, Washington.

He also has worked with musicians such as Chester Thompson (Phil Collins), Muriel Anderson, Peter Hutlinger, Little Big Town, Rod Murgenstein (Dixie Dreggs), Tribute 1964, Cynthia Clawson, Lari White, Pedro Cortes, and flamenco dancers Felipe de la Rosa, Martha SidHamed and Mara Maldonado.

Mario lives in Nashville, TN and teaches guitar at Belmont University in that city. He is busy performing and recording in the Nashville scene.

Mario's music is so soothing for any Beatle fan. I have all his cd's. What is especially nice, is that he is a WONDERFUL person. :)

If you love the guitar and are a fan 70s pop tunes fan, this album will not disappoint you. The first-rate arrangements capture the grooves, melodies, and harmonies of some of the greatest pop tunes ever written - and DaSilva plays them expertly.

Marc Martyn

Rarely do you hear an artist that plays the guitar with such fluency and clarity as Mario. He has chosen the best of the songs that many people still love today.

"Eye In The Sky", "While My Guitar Gently Weeps", "Going To California" and "Stairway To Heaven" are done so well and bring back many fond memories. Thank You!

Mario DaSilva Plays the Beatles for Everyone
As with previous cd's, it is a joy to listen to Mario's music... His music reflects his love for the music and guitar. Have always loved hearing him play, even before he recorded music.

Tamara Turner, CD Baby

The sound and typical approach of classical guitar often escapes all but those who are guitarists or classical music connoisseurs. But not with Mario DaSilva. Arranging songs from Christopher Cross to the Beatles, from Zeppelin to Steely Dan, the Doobie Brothers, the Eagles and James Taylor, these innovative covers are creative, playful and engage the listener with curiosity as he bends and tweaks some of the best songs ever written. Injecting his own sense of musicianship and following his ear for that perfect balance between personal creativity and staying true to the essence of the song, Mario's album, Meet Mario will likely bring smiles and comfort to its audience.

Classical-guitar renditions of classic rock songs? how can you go wrong! I really enjoyed listening to these interpretations, good choice in songs as well I thought.
