Marilyn Mazur

Marilyn Mazur was born in New York in 1955. She has been living in Denmark since age six. As a child and teenager she played classical piano and danced ballet.

She started her musical career as a dancer with Creative Dance Theatre in 1971. As composer/pianist she formed her first band Zirenes in 1973. From 1975 she worked as percussionist, drummer and singer with various groups, and became known on the danish musicscene as the colorful percussionist/composer of the group Six Winds with drummer Alex Riel and as the leader of the all-women- musictheatre-group Primi Band.

Marilyn Mazur is educated at the Royal Danish Academy of Music, but is largely autodidact on her instruments, inspired by music from all over the world. She received the Ben Webster Award in 1983, and the same year started a jazz quartet with saxophonist Uffe Markussen. She continued to develope her very personal forms of musical communication with various - mostly european - artists.
