YVY MARAEY grew up in Berlin as the daughter of a German mother, but she never let her father’s Brazilian culture escape her. Along with New Zealand guitarist and producer Simon Abela, she pursued this interest and began to combine Brazilian rhythms with contemporary R&B. Crystal clear and soulful vocals in English and Portuguese are brought together with playful melodies and chilled-out beats. Light and effortless, YVY MARAEY presents a blend of European and Latin American sounds that share common roots in catchy grooves. In 2022, YVY MARAEY is working on her debut EP.
YVY MARAEY receives a grant of 4,000 euros in 2022 for the release of two singles.
