The family lived with friends in Ramat Gan before settling in the Pardes Katz neighbourhood of Bnei Brak. From a young age, she studied piano with her mother, Ella, a classical pianist, and sang in a choir. Marina later went to the conservatory where her mother taught.[1]

Marina graduated from Ironi Alef high school in Tel Aviv. She began performing at jazz clubs at the age of 15, after pianist Rick Birman took her under his wing. She performed at the Red Sea Jazz Festival in Eilat.[1] She sang with the Common Band, an Ethnic-Fusion-Rock-Jazz band in festivals and clubs, and performed a solo, Beit Sefer LeMiskhak ("Acting School") on Ohad Ben Avi's debut album.
