MALKA first made waves on the music scene as Tamara Schlesinger, the frontwoman of acclaimed alt-folk collective 6 Day Riot. Her work has been included in a host of high-profile syncs for TV series and Hollywood blockbusters.
As MALKA she weaves mesmeric tribal percussive rhythms among a charge of irresistible and instantaneous melodies. Expect bright synths, loops and beats making a rhythmic core, sing-song vocals which repeat in the most rousing of fashions.
Her highly praised albums have received steady support at 6music from the likes of Lauren Laverne and Chris Hawkins, and has been played on Radio 1, playlisted on BBC Radio Scotland and received coverage in high profile press such as The Independent and The Herald.
