Mala gets us warmed up for his forthcoming album by dropping off the second track “4 Elements” on Youtube. The album is the result of repeated visits to Peru, it revolves around tempo and flow, working local Afro-Peruvian percussionists, grassroots tap dancers, and an Andean soprano into its fourteen tracks.
“I was introduced to music from the jungle, music from the mountains, Andean sounds, native sounds, Afro-Peruvian music. It all goes back to the roots and the rhythms and I related instantly. That primal rhythm is in all of us.” Mala
