This week I’ve got pop singer-songwriter Maalvika Manoj aka Mali. A young girl from Chennai who moved kit and kaboodle to Bombay with nothing but her music and her dreams. After her smattering of gigs around Bombay, and the release of her single 'Walk Away', she garnered the attention of music festival organisers and the likes of music directors Salim Merchant and Harris Jayaraj. Listen to her perform her unreleased music, talk about her debut album Deception, why she moved to Bombay, and how we met at a band hunt in Chennai. Kicking off the show, I have an original song by one of the biggest cover bands in India, The Other People who featured on Ep.6 of Maed in India.
