It has been a busy few years since Malcura released their debut EP Flamenco Metal. The trio have been busking extensively ever since, honing their craft in Melbourne’s CBD alongside well-known acts such as The Pierce Brothers and Tash Sultana. This has allowed the trio to steadily build their fan base, and also develop their original sound.
A chance appearance on stage at The Palais Theatre with Mexican guitar heroes Rodrigo y Gabriela became one of the acts biggest career highlights so far. Malcura have also performed at a number of festivals, including Wallaby Creek (QLD), Bendigo Blues and Roots, Mt Eliza Music Fest, St Kilda Festival; and are scheduled to appear at the 2017 Tanglewood Music Festival and Illawarra Folk Festival (NSW).
Malcura – the band’s self-titled debut album, was released in February 2016, with a launch show on the Federation Square main stage. The album has since been nominated for the award of the 2016 ‘Best Global/Reggae Album’ by The Age Music Victoria Awards.
Their next Mornington show is on May 27 at Gods Kitchen in Mornington.
