Meet Ranga!

I’m Ranga from Sri Lanka. I started my music career in 2008 as a guitar player and Singer. In the year 2010 I joined a four piece cover rock band as a lead singer and guitarist and performed live in many concerts. In the same time I started composing, mixing and mastering music and worked for 1 year in a recording studio. In 2013 the band separated and I continued composing and performing my music.

Meet Mara!

Mara Sofia Da Rocha Bettencourt is a Multilingual Singer-Songwriter with a versatile voice and an unique style. She is considered to be a romantic, emotional, and inspirational vocalist. Growing up in an artistic family, Mara’s inherent talent began to flourish at the age of 2, when she sang her first song: Stevie Wonder’s: “I just called to say I love you”, impressing her family and friends and setting her on a lifelong musical journey. Mara credits her father Lucio Bettencourt, a music lover and artist, creator of: Arte Da Terra Do Mar, as her inspiration. Her early introduction to the performing arts was followed by group and solo performances for special occasions in her home island Terceira, in the Azores, Portugal. She started writing songs at the age of 15 as she spent much of her younger years living and travelling to the U.S.A. The use of metaphors, nature sounds, different languages and spiritual connotations is very characteristic of her style and it is noticeable throughout her work.
