Marilyn Mazur’s Shamania

Marilyn Mazur’s Shamania is a fascinating mix of jazz and world music, consisting of Danish percussionist-composer Marilyn Mazur and her collective of all-female musicians from Scandinavian avantgarde jazz scene. Mazur’s compositions are both impressionistic and abstract, with emphasis on wordless vocal harmonies, improvisation, and impressive line-up of percussions and wind instruments.

Mazur has a consistently intrepid career behind her in groundbreaking ensembles such as Primi Band, Six Winds and Marilyn Mazur Group, not to mention touring the world with Miles Davis, Gil Evans Orchestra, Wayne Shorter Quintet and Norwegian sax giant Jan Garbarek. Shamania is a remarkable gathering of recognized and awarded artists of the Nordic jazz scene.
