Open Mic – April 2017

On April 29, 2017, Malja held its eleventh Open Mic night. This night of low-pressure creativity and inspiration was robust with musical performances, from acoustic guitars to purely vocal performances. In between and to finish, we got to experience the relaxing and thought-provoking effects of poetry and spoken word.
