In 2006 he contributed his voice with Guillermo Bonetto in the song "So far from me" of the group Maria Mulata . He also participated in the first edition of the classic Bob Marley Day festival. It was performed on the same night as The Peter Tosh Band and The Wailers before a crowded Luna Park stadium with 8,000 spectators. In the same year he performed at the Pepsi Music festival in Argentina . In December he dismissed the year with the release of Brothers , an album that expresses in his letters and in his harmony a message of peace, union, and respect.

Dread Mar-I & The Warriors of the King.
The reception of Brothers by the public, in 2007, makes Dread Mar-I, together with his band Los Guerreros del Rey, take their music to new places. During that year he demonstrated the national and international projection of his music. This consecration was reflected in three concerts at Niceto Club and at each location of Buenos Aires , which was presented when filled. He returned to participate in the Pepsi Music, and closed the year with a performance in Niceto, where more than 300 people who stayed outside of the place danced to the rhythm of their songs.

During 2008, Dread Mar-I is the Argentine reggae band that has performed the most concerts, with more than 60 shows in less than 8 months, including several cities in the interior (with performances on the Argentine Atlantic coast ), Chile and Uruguay . That same year he presented his album Amor-Es.

Dread Mar-I, the undisputed referent of the new sound of Reggae Roots and Lover, then presents Viví en do , his fourth album. The same contains 20 tracks and was recorded and mastered in Studios Panda by the engineer Emil Cura between December 2009 and January 2010. On April 27, 2011, the band arrives for the first time at the Estadio Luna Park, also in 2011 Participated in the song "Amor amor" of the band El Majebri and also sang "Sonia" in the album Reggaemanía , of DJ Nelson.

It is also worth noting that this year DREAD MAR I & El Guerreros del Rey (Su Banda) visited Mexico for the second time, offering a show in Guadalajara for more than 5000 people and made their first arrival in Costa Rica, Guatemala, El Salvador, Peru and Brazil.

Although the press claims that Mariano Castro is a "reggae lover" (romantic reggae composer), he defines himself as a reggae singer, citing as an example Bob Marley, who despite having love songs, also had to fight, Freedom, etc, in short, his best known songs were those of love and even so, he is a reggae singer. In February 2011 and April 2012, he released his new album Transparente .

On September 17, 2014, just ten days after the death of Gustavo Cerati , Castro made statements about the causes of the death of the musician, who generated controversy in the media.

"Sadly, Gustavo Cerati kills his ego, man. [...] He gives a total rebuke that such a thing happens, because the guy was 50 years old. Crazy, you have to stop and follow! Why did you go crazy? For the ego, because "I can do it and because I am number one and I do it because they told me since I was a kid" and shit, man."

La Sucursal de La Cumbia

La Sucursal de la Cumbia is a cumbia/rock band based out of Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico. The eight piece cumbia sensation has been somewhat responsible for reviving and generating the interest of the younger generation in the once lost genre which over the last few years has only really been heard at family gatherings or private parties. Now a days “La Sucursal” has been taking the Northern part of Mexico by storm, creating a massive party wave wherever they go and putting crowds of all ages on their feet! Since forming in April of 2011, the group has been invited to share the stage with very important names from all over the world such as Calle 13, La Maldita Vecindad, Molotov, Gondwana, Los Amigos Invisibles, Ozomatli, Panteon Rococo, Mago de Oz, Chico Trujillo, El Gran Silencio, Puerto Candelaria, Nortec: Bostich + Fussible, B-Side Players, Hello Seahorse and many more. The beginning of 2014 marked a very important milestone for La Sucursal de la Cumbia as they released their first official music video for their single “Pa Que Pues”, which has been generating a lot of interest throughout radio waves in Baja California. The band is set to release their debut album in June 2014 which features some very important names in the cumbia genre. For all of the details on their upcoming release, make sure and check back on the band's social media websites.

La Sucursal de la Cumbia has recently been added to appear at one of Mexico's biggest music festivals, Vive Latino 2015, alongside bands like Caifanes, Molotov, Robert Plant & the Sensational Space Shifters, Nortec Collective, Mastodon, Dave Matthews Band, The Specials, NOFX, Interpol, Ximena Sariñana and many more.

Throughout the Summer and Fall of 2015 the band will be on the road covering most of Arizona and going up and down California as part of their “Cumbia a Domicilio 2015” tour. In October of the same year the band returned on their 4th tour of Mexico City with dates covering Guanajuato Mexico as well.

In February 2016 the band was invited to open up Panteon Rococo’s sold out show at the Carpa Astros in Mexico City. During their stay out there, the band recorded their 2nd studio album with Dr. Shenka (Panteon Rococo frontman) as their album producer. Album is expecting an October 2016 release.
