A community worker by day, singer-songwriter by night. Mali Mali (real name Ben Tolich) has been creating heartfelt meditative chamber-pop for the last decade.

2020 was a busy year for Auckland-based Mali Mali. He released his 4th album I Was Told to Keep an Eye Out right after recovering from Covid-19 in April, then during lockdown, started recording his latest EP Kill and Throw, which he released in October.

Aside from a few shows, Mali Mali hasn't really had a chance to bring these new songs to life for a live audience. So it's such a treat to have him perform for us live today on Music 101.
