Maluca to perform concert at Alfred University

Maluca will be performing at Alfred University on Friday, Feb. 5 from 10 p.m. to midnight in the Knight Club, Powell Campus Center. Admission is free.

Maluca is a New York City native. Her strong fashion sense and genre-hopping ways may draw comparisons to M.I.A. and Santigold. She uniquely summarizes the duality of growing up Latina in the United States.

Maluca released her first single, “El Tigeraso” in August 2009.

Raised on a steady diet of Latin sounds including mambo and bachata, as well as ‘90s hip-hop, freestyle, and downtown club music, Maluca and her music break traditional boundaries and bring Latin music out of the so-called “world music” doldrums.

The URB Magazine chose Maluca as one of 25 artists to watch in 2010 and described here as “kicking … and taking names,” meaning having multiple successes.
