Marina & Mikael is an Icelandic jazz duet consisting of vocalist Marína Ósk and guitarist Mikael Máni Ásmundsson.
Marina Ósk studies the jazzmaster program and brings Mikael Mani Asmundsson into her studies at KMH.
They met and started to play together 4 years ago in the Conservatory of Amsterdam where they both studied their Bachelors degree.
In 2017 they released their debut album, "Beint heim", in Iceland which was well received and got nominated for the Icelandic Music Awards as "album of the year" in the jazz and blues category.
Their mutual love for the duo setting in jazz has led them to develop their own unique and dynamic sound and the delicate details that appear when the music is stripped down to only two musicians are handled with great care.They'll play some of their own compositions which are jazz based, lyrical and melodic, complimented by improvisation and textured arrangements.
