Open Mic – February 2017


On February 4, 2017, Malja held its ninth Open Mic night, and first of 2017. This night of low-pressure creativity and inspiration was robust with musical performances, from acoustic guitar and ukelele sessions to amplified electric guitar and purely vocal performances. In between, we got to experience the relaxing and thought-provoking effects of poetry.
