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, Scream 4 and 127 Hours.
Now as MALKA - 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.
Her highly praised debut album 'Marching to Another Beat' received steady support at 6music from the likes of Lauren Laverne and Steve Lamacq and syncs on both MTV and Netflix. Her music has found favour on 6music, Radio 1, has been playlisted on BBC Radio Scotland and received coverage on high profile press such as The Independent, The Line Of Best Fit and Drowned In Sound.
MALKA’s new album Ratatatat was released on 20th Oct 2017.
