Mauro Farina
is the embodiment of music. He lives, eats, drinks, and breathes music of all kinds 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Mauro was born in Brescia, a small town in between Milan and Venice. The Beatles were his largest influence in music as a young child and by the age of six he already knew all their songs. His record collection began by the purchase of “I Want To Hold Your Hand” and soon after that, he had his first guitar and taught himself how to play it. At the age of 11 he founded his first group called ALBATROS.

ALBATROS saw Mauro playing the rhythm guitar as well as being the group’s main vocalist. They performed Beatles cover songs like “Get Back” and “Hey Jude” as well as many other popular groups at the time. Naturally, Mauro attended school at the same time and at the age of 18 he went to university to study mechanical engineering. However, his passion for music was always at the forefront in his mind.

Mauro’s next musical step in life was joining Italy’s best dance group of the 70’s and 80’s called CARAVAN at the age of 19. For 15 years CARAVAN entertained countless fans with their great sense of music, style, and freshness. They were the first Italian group to cover the songs of Bobby Orlando, Sylvester, Patrick Cowley, K.C. & the Sunshine Band, Giorgio Moroder, among others.

Then, one day in 1975 when CARAVAN was performing in a castle for 15,000 pumped up fans located in Verona, Mauro met up with Giuliano Crivellente, a talented young virtuoso who was already busy working in recording studios collaborating with many popular Italian artists at the time. Immediately after their meeting, they began recording songs in Giuliano’s studio and together as the years followed, they wrote more than 1,000 tracks, produced more than 1,500 titles, and sold more than 10,00,000 albums as well as several million singles.

In 1981 Mauro Farina established the FACTORY SOUND STUDIO and THE SAIFAM GROUP srl! Soon after that after a few years of meeting new producers and artists, he first big hit to emerge from the FACTORY SOUND STUDIO was “Hey Hey Guy” by Ken Laszlo. This song was an amazingly huge success and hundreds of thousands of copies were sold worldwide.

The 80’s saw Mauro Farina and the FACTORY SOUND STUDIO enjoy countless hits with many, many stars. His music sold all over the world, especially places like Japan, Southeast Asia, Europe, and North America. Mauro can even be credited for inventing the “Japanese High-Energy” style that is still popular today. By the end of the 80’s, Mauro was beginning to receive his first gold discs, and this success overflowed right into the 1990’s.

By this time, Mauro had met up with more key people who would help him achieve continued success as his business grew larger and sold more and more music. Along with the support of Johnny Di Martino, Fabio Serra, and Fabio Turatti, Mauro would go on to write and produce numerous more hit singles for the next 10 years. Most notably, “Tell By Your Eyes” by DR. ZIVAGO sold over 500,000 copies and then “What’s Up” by D.J. Miko sold over 1,000,000 copies worldwide! It was in the 1990’s that important THE SAIFAM GROUP labels like 21st Century and One Way Records were born and the globe enjoyed their music year after year after year.

Today, Mauro continues his brilliant work as President and C.E.O. of THE SAIFAM GROUP srl. He runs five different companies under the THE SAIFAM GROUP name as well as owning six recording studios and manages a staggering total of 37 record labels. He has also joined up with American Grammy award winner Jeff Johnson of Interhit Records and domestic US compilations of THE SAIFAM GROUP’s music have already been released to great success.
