To establish a profound depth in the universe of sound one thing was inevitable: Marrakuu needed strings! For this reason, the duo was transformed into a band, thanks to Ambrosius Huber (Cello), whos musical ideas were one more step into Marrkuus soulful sounds. Together, their melancholic music shifts between shadowy dances and large looming beats of Ali Salivoni.Each composition has a charismatic interior life which strives irresistibly towards an unconventional landscape of sounds. Their rich experiences, gained from former and current sound projects with the most distinctive of music styles, stamps Marrakuu as kind of a new genre of music. Currently, Marrakuu is working on their first album Oblivion to be released in 2007. In the meantime, Marrakuu is constantly, in a quest to put new ideas into shape which will make imprints under the surface. Creating new landscapes of sounds within their form of expression to finally plunge inside each of us. Sounds that will awaken memories of the bitter-sweet, and the dusky-light, however, distanced they might be, to be close in the end.
