Marilyn Mazur’s FUTURE SONG was formed in march 1989 right after Marilyn left Miles Davis’ band.
This was the dream project that she had been fantasizing about during the intensive touring with Miles.

The original ’89 line-up was Aina Kemanis, voice; Palle Mikkelborg, trumpet; Jon Balke, keyboards; Elvira Plenar, keyboards; Klavs Hovman, basses; Audun Kleive, drums and Marilyn Mazur drums, percussion, marimba, keyboards and vocals.

After the initial tour of Denmark, Germany and Switzerland Nils Petter Molvær took Palle Mikkelborgs place except for the concert at the renowned rock festival in Roskilde ’89.
Jon Balke left the group after Roskilde, so the line-up was down to 1 keyboard player.

In 1991 Hans Ulrik joined the group on saxes and flutes, and gradually took over Nils Petter’s space, as Nils Petter formed his own project Khmer.

1992 was the year guitarplayer Eivind Aarset came into the band and completed the line-up: Aina Kemanis, voice; Hans Ulrik, sax & flute; Elvira Plenar, keyboards; Eivind Aarset, guitar; Klavs Hovman, bass; Audun Kleive, drums and Marilyn Mazur, percussion and voice.

From 2001 Swedish guitar player Krister Jonsson has replaced Eivind Aarset on the better part of the tours. As of 2007 he is a steady member of the band.

2007 brought new changes to the band norwegian singer Tone Åse was sub’ing for Aina Kemanis and japanese keyboardplayer Makiko Hirabayashi for Elvira Plenar on 2 concerts.
Fate would have it that the next tour, a winter tour in sweden early in 2008 saw Tone and Makiko sub’ing again.
They are now regular members of FUTURE SONG.
