Marutyri

Marutyri is an in Rotterdam based, instrumental fusion band. The deep and solid grooves, intense harmonies, story telling solo’s and the well arranged parts, make Marutyri unique in the today’s’ music world and the tougher-than-ever music business.
The band got off to a flying start since their founding in September 2014. In 2015 Marutyri played on the worldwide renown North Sea Jazz Festival, and, they won the prestigious NPO Radio 6 Soul & Jazz Award for Best Talent. In the same year, the band was invited to and played several times on the popular Dutch TV-show “De Wereld Draait Door”. The EP “The Tribe” was released in June 2015 and received a number of good critics.
How did this band become successful on such short notice? Well, not only by delivering hard work and interesting compositions, but also by making stunning live videos and working in a deadline based strategy: it all turned out to be highly effective. Most of the compositions, the arrangements and the project planning come from the band leader and bass player Rik van der Ouw. The band members share their artistic ideas, work hard and strongly focus when they send the music into the world.
The founders of the band became friends back in 2011 when they started studying at Codarts, the conservatory of Rotterdam. After going through various and different bands and projects (such as soul/funk formation Grant with the talented vocalist Jared Grant) they decided, instead of just listening to the fusion music, to make it their own and produce it themselves.
Reviews:
“ The build-up is almost ‘symphonic’ indeed, with a beginning and an end, with clear parts in the middle and which are not repeated in the composition. Impressive”.
Jan Piet Hartman, Jazznu.co
“Alternately, musically compelling and equipped with its own identity, Marutyri on ‘ Inner Movements ‘ sounds like a well oiled collective for which a bright future in play”.
Erno Elsinga, Jazzenzo
“”In short ‘ Inner Movements ‘ is an excellent jazz rock Made in Holland”.
Cok Jouvenaar, Popunie.nl
“I just wanted to say congratulations! The band and tunes sound wonderful”.
Michael League, Snaky Puppy
“Marutyri, this young band seems to be building its brand awareness thorough – also if you have nothing with the music that these musicians play – you can almost not ignore that”.
