Mala is the alter ego of singer songwriter Martina Lucic, born in Croatia and raised in The Netherlands. The word 'mala' can best be translated as ' girl' or 'little one', something her father still calls her. In 1994 during the Yugoslav Civil War, Martina and her family fled to the Netherlands. Even though she has no memories of the war, she has felt the pain and sadness her family experienced, but she has also felt the hope and endless love they have for each other. Now the time has come to share that emotional story with you, the listener, as a bold testament to her courageous family. "People listen to music for different reasons, and when they listen to mine, I hope they feel something in that moment that matters to them." - Mala Some Facebook reviews about Mala: "Down to earth and great music." "Heard her today at Café de Haas in Voerendaal, music that really enters your soul, great voice, I really enjoyed." "Heard her today at Struinen in de Tuinen in Maastricht, I got tears in my eyes from her last song Black Stains." "Pure, emotion and fun are three of the many words that came to mind when I saw Mala live. Enjoyed until the last minute." On April 3rd she released her debut EP, and on May 5th a song about freedom, celebration Dutch Liberation Day. On May 22nd a new single Wait A Little Longer followed describing this time in quarantine, always keep looking forward and have hope. And on February 14th a brand new duet is coming out, Under Your Spell.
