Funk & Soul Weekender
Thu 01 Jan 1970
Malavita! (The name at least) was conjured up on 21st February 2013 whilst on a flight to Cuba. A culmination of good friends, a love of music and a whole lot of determination set this project in motion many years before, but a chance collision of fresh blood, renewed fire in their bellies and using world music as their inspiration the group was reincarnated as Malavita!
Their genre defying sound fuses funky latin beats, heaps of percussion, soaring guitars, skanktastic bass lines, punchy horns and soulful female vocals to create a heady mixture of original, infectious feel good tunes. 8 eclectic, fun seeking musical misfits originating from Italy, France and the Deep South (Westcountry) come together to inspire you to dance, sing along and loose your inhibitions. Collectively on a mission to start the party and keep the dance floor jumping with their festival strength tropical sounds.
The group have enjoyed several summers full of gigs and festivals and have played the epic Boomtown Fair, Kendall Calling, Port Eliot Festival, Tunes in the Dunes, Rock Oyster Festival, Looe Music Festival , Tropical Pressure and Sunrise Festival.
