Open Mic – March 2017

On March 11, 2017, Malja held its tenth Open Mic night, and seconomic of 2017. This night of low-pressure creativity and inspiration was robust with musical performances, from acoustic guitars to purely vocal performances. In between, we got to experience the relaxing and thought-provoking effects of poetry and spoken word.
