Although George Mari’s first love is jazz, he has appeared in a wide range of musical settings, including the concert stage and musical productions at The Cellar, the Playhouse Theatre and the Barnyard Theatre.

The Durban-based trumpeter and pianist has worked as a performer, composer and arranger for several years and regularly performs with the George Mari Quartet at KZN jazz venues as well as private and corporate functions.

He holds a Master’s degree in Composition and Arrangement from the University of Natal, and was awarded a scholarship to study under the world-renowned trumpeter, Arturo Sandoval, at Florida International University. George was a member of the Cape Town Jazz Orchestra, initiated by Abdullah Ibrahim in 2004, and is co-ordinator of several community Arts projects.
