The new album promises to entertain you with a passionate sound coming straight from the inner sanctum of her heart and soul. Recorded in the US and Canada Produced by Jack LeTourneau in association with Neal Ford Sundet. This new Canadian voice shows the kind of new talent which will sure to be a major contender in the future of musical landscape.
“Malak has been raking in much acclaim usually by people who are simply blown away by the voice that rushes out of her. It's like ice on fire.”– Ottawa Life Magazine.
Malak draws on her multicultural heritage to couple her electronic elements with real instruments, which meld her memorable songwriting and charismatic persona into an impactful and engaging live show.
Since releasing her 2016 EP, Circus, Malak has been invited to perform at many festivals - including Megaphono international music conference, Ottawa Grassroots Festival, Festival Folk et Guitarre d’Aylmer, and RBC Bluesfest - and has also released a number of successful online videos. Currently Malak is recording her debut full length record, and has been producing multiple live performances videos that will be released over the course of the next year.

About The PepTides:
They’re a well-oiled Where’s Waldo? Rube Goldberg machine of colourful lightening strewn with silk, soul and funk! They’re the Warhol painting you’ve never seen hanging on the bridge of a shimmering disco starship about to enter your atmosphere in rainbow warp drive. They are stardust. They are golden. There live shows are as bright and beaming as their outfits.
Malak may be a newcomer on the local scene, but her voice shows a maturity beyond her years. Raised in Egypt, she’d venture to Greece, Italy and Germany before the eventual move to Canada collecting the music of each region like road maps in a glove compartment. Malak has been raking in much acclaim usually by people who are simply blown away by the voice that rushes out of her. It's like ice on fire. That moment you first hear it is a kind of mix of elation and sadness because you realize you will never get to experience her for the first time again!
For the first time ever in Cairo join me for an evening of original music and your favourite covers at Yellow Umbrella. This show is going to be raw, up close and personal. I'm excited to share my music with you!
Tickets: 50 LE, available at the door. Limited space!
