Mala is a Swiss-American folk singer-songwriter and fiddler who makes her home in Lucerne. Her music has been described as “healing” “powerful” “magnetic” “passionate” and “as pure as an Alpine stream”. The songs of her upcoming album (available in fall 2020) originated in a longer visit to the US, where she met like-minded artists. The themes of the album cover a lot of ground from enjoying the creative impulses life affords us all to its limitations: prison bars that it’s up to each of us to break. It’s about the healing and wild powers of nature and also about sorrow and loss… a collection of experiences full of hope, new space and open doors. Currently, she can be heard at solo shows and with her bandmates Marc Scheidegger (guitar, voc), Rafi Woll (percussion, voc) and Simon Iten (upright bass).
