Best records of 2019

Maluba Orchestra self titled
is a 13 piece band founded and co-led by percussionist Marilyn Mazur, guitarist Kasper Bai and Fredrik Lundin.  
The band plays music written by the three founders. 

We three – Marilyn, Fredrik and Kasper – are not at all alike as composers, or as human beings for that matter. Nonetheless, each of us longed for a large band – one that could realize our most ambitious compositional ideas. In 2017, we decided to create such a group together, as we felt that our different gifts and sounds would lend themselves to one another 

We celebrated our range of breadth and diversity as strengths as we chose the musicians for the band. Thus, the 13 featured players come from all corners of the Danish contemporary jazz scene, representing a broad spectrum of playing styles, musical personalities and temperaments. 

Paradoxically, we believe that all these disparate elements allow our band to speak with a unique but recognizable voice of its own.
