Open Mic – November 2017


On November 25, 2017, Malja held its eighteenth 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 in addition to a stand-up comedy act.
