Marie Fatima Rudolf bio:

Toronto-born pianist Marie-Fatima Rudolf began piano lessons at the age of four. The daughter of two jazz musicians, she studied classical music for nearly fifteen years, thus developing good technical ability and a good ear. In her last year of high-school she performed Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue at the Toronto Centre for the Performing Arts. She then moved to Montreal to begin a degree in Jazz Performance at McGill University, studying primarily with Jeff Johnston. Since her graduation in 2005, Marie-Fatima has been playing in various Montreal venues : Kemia, Quai des Brumes, Absinthe, Upstairs, Cafe Sarajevo, Bily Kun. She played at Sala Rossa with her trio as a part of the Suoni Music Festival, and was recently resident artist at the Upstairs. Marie-Fatima plays mainly with her trio, MM3, the preferred formation for her melodic compositions and colourful arrangements of jazz standards. Her inspirations vary from classical to hip-hop to soul, and the group’s music always reflects creativity, honesty, sensitivity and freshness.
