MALKA first made waves on the music scene as Tamara Schlesinger, the frontwoman of acclaimed alt-folk collective 6 Day Riot and also as a prolific songwriter. Her past work has been included in a host of high-profile syncs for TV series and Hollywood blockbusters – most notably Skins, Degrassi, Scream 4 and 127 Hours. Her voice can also be heard in Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels.
Now as MALKA – With more colour than Holi Festival – she weaves mesmeric percussive rhythms among a charge of irresistible call and response chants and instantaneous melodies. She explores a carnival of global sounds intertwined with an explorative affirming message; she’s the powerful natural-born leader of a welcome new feel-good cult.
MALKA is set to release a new album during 2017.
