Mali aka Maalavika Manoj is a Mumbai-based singer-songwriter whose tunes capture the
authenticity of classic pop from the 1970s, ’80s and ’90s. Her debut EP Rush, recorded live with
some of the most talented musicians from the Indian independent scene such as fellow singer-
songwriter and guitarist Tejas, drummer Jehangir Jehangir and bassist Stuart DaCosta, embraces
the kind of warm, raw, analog sounds that are rarely heard in contemporary pop today.
