Marko Djordjevic /  New York Drummer, Composer, Educator

Called a “world-class drummer” and “a true innovator” by Modern Drummer magazine, Marko Djordjevic has played on about 50 albums and has thousands of live performances worldwide to his credit.

Matt Garrison, Wayne Krantz, Jonah Smith, Clarence Spady, Lucky Peterson, Jacques Schwartz-Bart, Garry Willis, Hal Crook, Eli Degibri, Lionel Loueke, Aaron Goldberg, Damian Erskine, The Itals, The Kung Fu Masters, Chris McDermott, Ole Mathiesen, Sten Hostfalt, The Mason Brothers, Tim Miller, and Eric Lewis are some of the artists Djordjevic has performed and/or recorded with since he graduated from Berklee College of Music where he was accepted on a scholarship at the tender age of 16.

Goakeeper Records recently released Something Beautiful, Marko's fourth album as leader. The release garnered praise from both peers and press:

"Marko is a superb drummer and composer. His new album is grooving and captivating throughout." - Ari Hoenig

"Djordjevic is young and plainly set to join the true greats. As with gents like Jon Christensen, Jack DeJohnette and Billy Cobham, an uninterrupted loop flows from mind and heart into hands then through the drums and back again." - Mark C. Tucker, Accoustic Exchange

"For creativity and approach this release gets five stars. Everything else is simply gravy on what is a true sleeper and stellar performance for 2013." - Criticaljazz.com

"Masterful drummer with Serbian roots." - Cadence Magazine

One of the finest musicians of our era, Blue Note recording artist Lionel Loueke says: "Marko is one of the greatest drummers out there. He possesses incredible technique, and a musical mind to match it! I love playing with him because he is so creative and unique!"

In a chapter dedicated to him in the recently published book, The New Face Of Jazz (author Cicily Janus, Billboard Press/ Random House, Inc.), it is said that "Marko's name is quickly becoming synonymous with greatness and diversity."

Marko is an A-level endorser of DDRUM, Zildjian, Evans, and Vic Firth and has been featured as a soloist and clinician at many of the world's top music events such as PASIC, Music Messe, Montreal Drum Fest, NAMM, Music Fest Canada, Jazz Yatra India. He has also appeared at some of the most prominent contemporary music schools (Berklee College of Music, Drummers Collective, MIT, Modern Music in Greece, L'aula in Spain, etc).

Alfred Publishing is the exclusive worldwide distributor of his critically-acclaimed DVD entitled Where I Come From - A Fresh Approach To Drumming and book The New Frontier.

In addition to his busy performing schedule, Marko is a faculty member at The Drummers Collective in NYC. He also teaches privately at his NYC studio.
