Jazz/Soul Vocalist, pianist and composer, Mala Waldron is a native of New York. Mala's musical approach reflects the many varied styles of music she was exposed to as a youngster. She credits her parents, both jazz pianists, with giving her a strong and varied foundation in the jazz culture. Her maternal grandmother, also a pianist, was from the caribbean islands and introduced young Mala to Calypso. Of her earlier influences, she also credits her older brother with introducing her to the best of R&B.
