Marko Markovic was born on 29 February 1988 in Surdulica, South Serbia. Being, perhaps, the biggest admirer of his father Boban – who plays the trumpet for over 30 years, Marko grew up loving music. He began playing trumpet at the tender age of 5, having his grandfather Dragutin as his first teacher and role model.
When Marko turned 14, his father took him on tour with him for the first time, turning Marko into a member of his orchestra. Marko continued to show he was born to play the trumpet and Boban, proud of his son’s talent, handed his orchestra to Marko on his 18th birthday.
Since 2006, Marko (then 18 years old) has co-led the orchestra with his father, giving many spectacular solos as well as composing and arranging new material for the band and producing new albums together with Boban, like “Go Marko, Go”, “Devla” and “Covek I Truba”. Meanwhile, Marko got involved in side projects which led him to play with important jazz musicians such as Frank London, Roy Paci, Paolo Fresu and Hüsnü Şenlendirici and Kalman Balogh from Hungary.
Marko also collaborated as a soloist and co-arranger with Shantel on the albums "Disco Partizani" and "Planet Paprika", as well as with singer Miss Platnum on her album "The Sweetest Hangover", in 2010.
