Mala has announced plans for new album 'Mirrors'.
The material was prompted by an extended visit to Peru, with the bass warrior spending time in the capital of Lima.
Fuelled by these complex South American rhythms, he returned to the UK to focus on the project. 'Mirrors' will be released on June 10th, with Mala commenting:
“I was introduced to music from the jungle, music from the mountains, Andean sounds, native sounds, Afro-Peruvian music... It all goes back to the roots and the rhythms and I related instantly. That primal rhythm is in all of us.”
The record features a raft of field recordings, alongside contributions from Colectivo Palenke and soprano-anthropologist Sylvia Falcon.
