Founded in 2017 by Marilyn Mazur, Fredrik Lundin and Kasper Bai.  

With this project the three composers celebrate their diversity as strengths, also when choosing the musicians for the band. Thus, the 13 featured players come from all corners of the Danish contemporary jazz scene, representing a broad spectrum of playing styles, musical personalities and temperaments.

Their debut Album "Maluba Orchestra" (Stunt Records) won the Danish Music Award for Best Jazz Album in 2020.

“...This Danish ensemble has evolved an idiom all of its own, in which improvisation and composition live happily together. It can switch from wild freedom to disciplined accuracy in an instant and generate a fiery rhythmic drive”

– Dave Gelly, The Guardian, UK
