Saturday 3 February, 7.30pm, St Endellion Church
Featuring saxophonist Mark Lockheart, bassist Jasper Høiby and pianist Liam Noble, Malija is a sophisticated, genre-bending trio that has been delighting audiences since 2014, now coming to St Endellion as part of a UK tour promoting their newly launched second album Instinct. The three distinctive compositional voices, all hugely influential in the London scene, combine to form a unique sounding group.
Driven by a commitment to improvisation and collective musical banter, the band’s idiomatic sweep through bluegrass, tango, abstract grooves and shimmering landscapes is delivered with flair and playful abandon.
“All-star trio delivers meticulously crafted performances of new material… A cliché-free collection and a work of trenchant individuality”.
