France – Malawian singer Malia is back with her second album Echoes of dreams
after Yellow Daffodils (Epic/Sony France). She is
now releasing a soul & blues project inspired by her trips to Malawi (her
childhood country), London and New York, all this mixed with a ‘pop’sound. From
her bi-cultural background, Malawian and English, she gets a great taste for
exploring new paths. That’s what she did after hearing a Liane Foly track in a
New York restaurant and decided that she had to find the producer of this great
song. This is how André Manoukian finally produced her first record. More
mature, she has put together a 12 track album out on September 29 that will
confirm her great talent.
