Mala’ssecond album Mirrors is due out June 10 and promises to build a bridge from Croydon to Lima via his laptop.
Mirrors is the follow-up to 2012’s well-received debut LP Mala in Cuba, which was steered by Brownswood Recordings’ boss Gilles Peterson.
“It all goes back to the roots and the rhythms and I related instantly,” says Mala. “That primal rhythm is in all of us.”
Again out on Brownswood, in addition to regular vinyl, CD and digital formats, Mirrors will also be released as a limited edition triple vinyl box set.
