The Magic Flute
The Magic Malik Quintet will be performing three concerts in Poland this April, in Warsaw, Gdansk, and Wroclaw. The multi-instrumentalist star of the band, Malik Mezzadri (also known as Magic Malik) hails from the Ivory Coast in Africa. He left traditional school as a youth and studied at the French Marseilles Music Academy. In 1988 he left the classical music scene after winning a contest for young musical talents to pursue musical adventures in Paris. There he joined the group of artists called "Human Spirit," touring the world in 1999. Since then, he has been touring and enlightening the the world with the music of the Magic Malik Quintet, a reinterpretation of drum�n�bass, African rhythms, an echo of Hindu rag, with jazz and salsa riffs thrown in.
