Experimental alt-pop songstress.

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. Her voice can also be heard in Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels. Her music has also been featured in Degrassi Next Class and MTV’s Catfish recently.

Tamara released her critically acclaimed debut MALKA album ‘Marching To Another Beat’ in 2015. Since then she’s become a BBC 6Music favourite and has clocked up big support from Lauren Laverne, who recently featured MALKA’s previous single ‘Wonder Why’ in her ‘Best Of 2016’ playlist, alongside Steve Lamacq, Nemone and Chris Hawkins at the station, while Huw Stephens is a big fan of MALKA at Radio 1.

MALKA is building a dedicated tribe of followers with her feel-good living mantra. Challenging the current retrogressive mind-set of many across the world and urging them into a forward-thinking paradigm, the Glasgow singer is set to lift spirits with her thoughtful new music.
