“Marialy is a rare kind of musician who has a perfect blend of knowledge, touch, tone and freedom in her music. She seamlessly weaves in and out of musical stories and delights the soul with free flowing improvisation that takes the listener by surprise, causing us to trust her with our hearts and ears! She’s HOT!!!.“
(Tommy Emmanuel, Australian guitar legend)
In July 2012 Marialy Pacheco was the first woman to win the prestigious Montreux Jazz Solo Piano Competition in Switzerland.
