Marino Curnis is mostly a self-taught musician. He mainly plays guitar (electric, classic, acoustic, slide..). However he owes eminent teachers parts of his musical knowledge: Mario Maffeis (that taught him theory and solfeggio) and Emanuel Gasparini ("HotLine" guitarist). During 1996 and 1997 Marino teaches guitar at "Istituto Palazzolo" in "Schilpario" (Bergamo - Italy). Again in 1997 he joins S.I.A.E. taking exams as "Composer Melodist Transcriber" and "Lyricist, Author of Literary Part". Musical studies lead him in 1998 to Varanasi (Benares - India), where he learns tabla, classical hindustani music and rudiments of sitar, that he transfers on guitar thanks to "open" tunes. Furthermore he plays recorders (tenor and contralto).

Favourite music genres are the blues (Robert Johnson, Elmore James, Jimi Hendrix, Gary Moore, Led Zeppelin..) and the fusion/ethnic (Miles Davis, Trilok Gurtu, Sting..). However Marino is an obstinate listener of every music genre: baroque (Vivaldi, Albinoni..), classic (L. and W.A.Mozart, J.S.Bach..), hindustani (Ustad Zakir Hussein, Ravi Shankar..), jazz (Zawinul, Larry Carlton, Gianluigi Trovesi, Paolo Fresu..), pop (Cat Stevens), folk (Adaro, Riccardo Tesi and Banditaliana..), hard rock (Steve Vai, Incubus, Primus, Joe Satriani..), traditional (Tito Oprandi, Nepali, Russian and Ukraine Bards..), soundtracks (Ennio Morricone, Masala..), avant-garde (Franco Battiato, Frank Zappa..), demential (Elio e le Storie Tese), world, fusion, funky (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Prince..), etc...

Marino with plesure and with nostalgia remembers some collaborations and
jam-sessions over the years: his "Lonely Soul Ex Blues Band", the "035 Funky Blues Band", "Ferebandaperta", the "Manovall", Deitra Farr, Jeff "One Man Band" at "Nave Blues Festival" (Brescia - Italy), Arthur Miles (greatest singer in "BLUE'S" by Zucchero Fornaciari), etc...

After a long break from music scene, Marino wish today start again playing through his projects: "OL'BLUES - Blues e Dintorni" and "ExBlues".
