Marisa biography

Maria Isabel Garcia Asensio aka Marisa was born in Malaga, Spain, but currently resides in Belgium. She composed her first melody on the guitar at the age of 12. She created project Marisa with 2 other friends, sent a demo and released two singles : Vivre avec toi and Love and melody. She presented Bonito show in the early 90s. She shot her first video clip in the Forest National. With Power People, she took part to the charity song Song for Life to support the wounded spirits from Ex-Yugoslavia.

New producers discovered her thanks to the Belgium show 10 qu’on aime. Their aim was to find a female singer for a parlando (speaking in Spanish on a musical piece). So Marisa listened to the instrumental but she could not help but starting singing and spicing it up her own way. This track was soon to be heard by Radio Contact, which decided to make it its hit. Un clima ideal was released on air in 1995 and became the summer hit.

She explains : "I wrote Bailando in my bathroom. My father was a welder and was working nights. So, in order to not disturb him while he was sleeping during the day, I would isolate myself in the room that was the furthest away from his in the house. The tiles, the space and the echo from the bathroom inspired me. They gave a huge size to my songs. "

After being the female vocalist for the Paradisio project (with her, the group scored hits like Bailando or Vamos A La Discoteca), she went solo and released 2 singles : Copa de champana and Chocolate café. They were composed and arraged by Patrick Hamilton. The executive producer was Patrick Vanderhallen.

2008 : she nowadays lives in Alleur in Liège region (Belgium). She got married with DJ Charley, that she met in 2002.
