Marimanga Trio

Istrefi Bajram

Drummer and percussionist, born in 1979 in Kosovoska Mitrovica.

As a 16-year-old he arrives in Graz with a wish to study jazz. His wish came true thanks to his great talent and persistence. He progresses very quickly and becomes an active musician in the local jazz scene. Musicians who he claims have had the biggest influence on his development include drummer Elvin Jones and percussionist Trilok Gurtu.

He followed in their footseps and at the same time managed to find his own sound and style which he wove into the sound of the band "Marimanga". He is currently living in Graz where he is doing his post-graduate studies.
