Open Mic – September 2017


On September 23, 2017, Malja held its fifteenth 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 two stand-up comedy acts.
