Editor: Could you tell us a bit about yourself and how you entered the music industry?
Mariana Barrier: I started singing at the age of 6 at the Music School and was touring with folkloric music. Later on, I was interested in jazz and electronic music, deep house in particular. I still compose electronic music and sing jazz.
Editor: Tell us about your achievements as a musician?
Mariana: I don’t know what exactly do you call ‘achievements’, I am happy when the audience has a good time during the show, that’s the biggest satisfaction and achievement for me.
Editor: Tell us about your songs which have released until date. Is there a song you feel most proud of?
Mariana: I have released the jazz single “Summertime” available on iTunes, Deezer, Amazon, and Spotify.
Editor: Where did you get that confidence to perform on stage?
Mariana: I learned it gradually. At first, I was very nervous, thinking that everyone will notice every slight mistake that I can make. It comes with time and experience, you relax eventually.
