#POR
Marafona assenta na procura de um rumo imaginário para a música popular portuguesa, inspirando-se na criação popular, para a reinventar com os novos sons da globalização.
Contadoras de histórias, as canções são quase visuais, com uma diversidade tímbrica de instrumentos acústicos e de influências musicais, que fazem deste quinteto uma sonoridade muito própria e característica no panorama musical português.
