Mar de Miguel


Hi, I’m Mar, a new member of the Fresh On The Net team.

I am a biologist, and I work at a research laboratory. I became interested in music as a child and studied Music Theory, Piano and Choral Singing for more than one decade. Although the circumstances steered me into Biology, I have never been cut off from the music.

Since always I’ve had a predilection for Scottish, Irish folk, Breton and Galician music, but I have a large collection of world music. With my trips to Brazil I added from Bossa to Samba, Samba Reggae, Pagode, Sertanejo…, but above all, a wide range of current Brazilian rock musicians, entirely unknown in the international market.

Hence, when I returned to Spain, and later moved to Los Angeles (California), I was bored by the monopolized commercial music that was on the radio. This, the gradual disappearance of good record stores and the possibilities offered by the Internet, sparked my curiosity for other forms of music and the independent music media.

Following that path I founded “Jungle Indie Rock” with my best friend, a music blog where we have fun and we feature independent bands and artists.

I still travel a lot, looking for new sites, sounds and rhythms. I currently live in Madrid and I just landed here, at Fresh On The Net 🙂

    I had that robotic thing inside my head the whole day so I decided to “torture” our readers with it! 😀 Nooo. I posted it because I like it very much and it is so catchy. Glad you like that site. A lot of work in there. We made it as a funny place to listen to music and our monster is growing!
