Biography

Marutyri

Marutyri is an in Rotterdam based, instrumental fusion band. The deep and solid grooves, intense harmonies, story telling solo’s and the well arranged parts, make Marutyri unique in the today’s’ music world and the tougher-than-ever music business.

The band got off to a flying start since their founding in September 2014. In 2015 Marutyri played on the worldwide renown North Sea Jazz Festival, and, they won the prestigious NPO Radio 6 Soul & Jazz Award for Best Talent. In the same year, the band was invited to and played several times on the popular Dutch TV-show “De Wereld Draait Door”. The EP “The Tribe” was released in June 2015 and received a number of good critics.

The founders of the band became friends back in 2011 when they started studying at Codarts, the conservatory of Rotterdam. After going through various and different bands and projects (such as soul/funk formation Grant with the talented vocalist Jared Grant) they decided, instead of just listening to the fusion music, to make it their own and produce it themselves.
