"Living In the Sun"- Marbella Marbella Adelante By Dario Poli

Enjoy the music and the video of “Livin in the Sun” and experience the joys and lifestyle of those of us lucky enough to live in this beautiful and spectacular area. The striking mountain of La Concha providing a breathtaking backdrop for the town Marbella and environs. Wherever you are in or around the beautiful town of Marbella, this mountain is hard to miss.

From its summit, a visitor can look down on Marbella and the glamorous port of Puerto Banus and far beyond, with the blue shimmering Mediterranean Sea below, spreading her majestic presence as far as the eye can see, invitingly casting her spell upon all who dare gaze upon her. And in her embrace, lies Marbella with its abundance of flowers and orange trees, with winding intimate streets where one discovers the most exclusive shops and restaurants. Its perfect microclimate makes Marbella unique, enjoying 320 days of sunshine per year.

Dario Poli, composer, artist, writer and entrepreneur, often described by his contemporaries as Renaissance Man, has once again teamed up with top professional  musician /entertainer David Mairs, and together the duo have penned and recorded another catchy song “Livin in the Sun” as part of their ongoing campaign to help promote Marbella and the Costa del Sol by using the power of music,  to cross all international borders. “Livin In the Sun” is from their latest CD album of the same title which is a CD of original musical compositions created by the duo, which are due to be released.

Dario the initiator of the campaign, wrote the music to the anthem  aptly titled “Marbella Marbella” after the  City which was the inspiration for his enthusiastic support for the area.
The song has been recorded by professional singers Alan de Ward and Samantha Mairs in English, as well as the popular Cuban Star Yanela Brooks in Spanish, with David Mairs having created the first arrangement of Dario’s music. Video By Martyn Wood

The duo have continued their creative association with their recent musical creation “Corazon” a unique  and complex production to help Charities, with Dario writing the music and David the lyrics, which was chosen by the International charity, “The Children For Peace Onlus” based In Rome, and whose President is Debbi Mace and Vice- President Lamia Kashoggi.

Recognised by UNESCO, The Children for Peace Onlus based in Rome, was founded in 2005, with the express purpose of assisting children worldwide who are in need of FUNDEMENTAL survival support – children caught up in the wars of hunger, of starvation, of illness, of armed conflict, of illiteracy and of isolation from opportunity. All donations received go directly to fund projects.
