Open Mic Night


To kickstart the new year, and due to popular demand, Malja Bahrain launched our first Open Mic night on January 9, 2016.With a diverse line-up of performances, including poetry readings, musicians, and stand-up comedy, the event turned into a night of creativity and openness to experimentation. This night marked the beginning of a new feature at Malja Bahrain, where all creatives can sign up to practice their stage presence and test new materials on a small and low-key crowd.
