Marialy Pacheco (CU) – piano
Rhani Krija (MA–DE) – drums, percussion

“Marocuba” is a vibrant collaboration featuring a piano and percussion duo that delivers music based on a unique combination of influences. Marialy Pacheco describes it as “a mix of traditional Cuban music and Afro-Moroccan rhythms, combined with contemporary European jazz”.

Cuban pianist Marialy Pacheco released the first of her four albums in 2005. In 2012, she became the first woman to ever win the Montreux Jazz Festival Solo Piano Competition.

Moroccan-born percussionist Rhani Krija is one of the world’s most in-demand sidemen, not only in jazz and world music, but in rock and pop. He has played with Sting, Herbie Hancock, Al Di Meola, Annie Lennox and many others.

Marialy Pacheco and Rhani Krija met for the first time in 2013 and discovered an instant musical rapport. This led to Rhani Krija guesting on her albums “Introducing” (2014) and “Duets” (2017), and to their live collaboration “Marocuba”, which they first presented in 2015.
