With Skrikberg’s help, Marko acquired a facility for rudiments, which in turn facilitated his approach to the instrument. Marko has worked as an independent player in various bands since 1990. He has played e.g. Gran Old Lady Muska Babitz band from 2005 to 2015. He currently plays in background bands of various artists.
