MALKA: Wonder Why

The latest single from MALKA features a typically brilliant video. Tamara Schlesinger gives us the run down.

Written by Amelia Gregory

MALKA
Tamara Schlesinger is MALKA. Here she introduces her new music, which is as ever accompanied by a brilliantly creative video:

MALKA
Wonder Why is my latest single - I am back in the studio working on new material following the release of my album and this is the first track that felt 'right'. It is about discovery and the realisation of your place in society and still maintains the tribal routes of 'Marching To Another Beat'. I like to create melodic sing-a-long songs with a deeper meaning which I hope comes across here.


The video was created by the same team that I always use. Directed by Lee Bamsey, DOP Steve Gray and this time we have had added CGI and amazing animation from Tony Lee. I think the video adds an extra dimension to the song and is really immersive.
