MAGRO is a drummer and producer from Berlin. With his unusual sound, he creates a fusion of produced HipHop/RnB music and acoustically played jazz. His project combines many of his musical influences such as Herbie Hancock, J Dilla and Chris Dave. Magro: I want to build a bridge between catchy music and the deep elements of Jazz.“ Over the years, Magro has worked with numerous artists as a drummer and producer (amongst others Leona Berlin, Kenny Wesley, J Lamotta, Stimulus). Tours and international festival appearances (including Tremplin Jazz Avignon, Jazz Al Popolo Rome, Women in Music Festival Zambia and many more) have taken him around the world.
