piece fusion outfit Marutyri is gracing the stage at Amersfoort World Jazz Festival this year with but one goal; turning the Lieve Vrouwekerkhof on its head through narrating solos, thunderous dynamics and a big fat dose of funky improv! Funk, fusion and jazz are forged together into their groovy, signature sound. That’s gotten them quite far, too; the band won an NPO Radio 6 Soul & Jazz Award in 2015, was nominated for an Edison Award with their album Inner Movements and played over 150 shows in Europe, Asia and Canada. Not a bad score considering Marutyri was founded in 2014 – and is signed to Challenge Records already.
Dutch stages have also happily hosted the group over the years, but now it’s time for Amersfoort World Jazz Festival to take its turn. Marutyri is infamous for their explosive, solid performance, but also for their love of a good production whether it’s live or online.. A love we share, so august 12th will no doubt be memorable.
