Singer, songwriter Marylya is an artist beyond genre and comparison. Her music does not belong to a specific culture and she moves freely between improvisation and structured songs, tension and appeasement, lyricism and force.  She has performed extensively around the world with musicians, visual artists and dancers.

 Japanese photographer Araki, with whom she has collaborated several times, once wrote that her performances are distinguished by their “essentially theatrical strength, a mood filled with sorcery”.

Marylya is a partner of Gozo Yoshimasu, dpic poet, Japan.

Maida met Marilya in Brazil where they were both performing.
