Mariana Sanchez :: Composer

I’m a drummer and percussionist and got involved with music when I was 15. At the Souza Lima Conservatory, I started taking the studies very seriously. Soon after, I was a student at Faculdade Souza Lima, where I studied with renowned names of Brazilian music and I also started studying composition. I was accepted at Berklee College of Music, where I had the opportunity to study with  great names of the jazz scene. In the United States, I played with several groups in the Boston and New York region. I worked on the play “Mulheres Alteradas” and I’m currently teaching Beat Drums. I also lead an instrumental Brazilian music group. Member of People of Change since August 2013.
