Magro

MAGRO is a drummer and producer from Berlin. With his unusual sound, he creates a fusion of produced HipHop/RnB music and acoustically played jazz. His project combines many of his musical influences such as Herbie Hancock, J Dilla and Chris Dave. Magro: “I want to build a bridge between catchy music and the deep elements of Jazz.“ Over the years, Magro has worked with numerous artists as a drummer and producer (amongst others Leona Berlin, Kenny Wesley, J Lamotta, Stimulus). Tours and international festival appearances (including Tremplin Jazz Avignon, Jazz Al Popolo Rome, Women in Music Festival Zambia and many more) have taken him around the world. In addition, he co-produced the debut album by Leona Berlin, which was released by Warner Music in 2018.

After several singles appeared last year, he recently released a beat tape under his name. His debut album “Trippin” will be released on May 28th. With this, Magro shows his artistic and creative perspective on the present time. On the album Magro features some of his favorite musicians and singers - among others Jazz legend Kurt Rosenwinkel, Leona Berlin and US rapper TwizzMatic.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
