Malaika's Repertoire Page

The following is the list of songs Malaika has sung in live appearances since they formed in August of 1994. On the left side is the song title and composer(s) along with an indicator when the song is an original. Some songs will have clickable sound clips and eventually there will be a clickable flag allowing you to view the lyrics of Malaika originals. On the right side of the list is the genre of music it fits and (if other than English) the language it was written in. Enjoy!
