2010 b&w25

 

For two and a half decades Toby Marks, aka Banco de Gaia, has been consistently redefining world electronica, with his music leaving an indelible footprint on the global scene, sparking many a dancefloor and inspiring countless musicians to follow. His sound has been at the forefront of blending acoustic and electronic sounds, integrating themes and techniques from cultures and traditions the world over, and along the way he has worked with musicians and producers as ingenious and diverse as Pink Floyd’s Dick Parry, Natacha Atlas, Tim Wheater, and Hawkwind – to name just a few.

Ranging from cinematic ambience to pounding dancefloor-fillers, his music defies genres and borrows from a wealth of musical sources and styles. His background in jazz and rock combine with his love of dance and world music to produce a glorious, uplifting and at times mesmerising sound.
