Singer Mali (solo) + What Time Is It, Mr. Fox?

Posted on

Join us for an intimate evening of music and food, hosted by WW, a long-time friend and fan of What time is it, Mr. Fox? and Singer Mali of Jaggery.

WW is opening up her home, near a Brookline T stop, to all comers. ****To receive the address, please RSVP by email to []. Space is limited and attendance is not guaranteed without an RSVP.****

The event begins at 7pm.
Donations requested.

“Brian is one of my favorite people, and the last time Mr. Fox played at my house was one of the best days of my life. I’m also a fan of Mali’s music – she does stuff with her voice that I couldn’t even imagine doing. It’ll be fantastic to have Mr. Fox back and to have Mali performing in my home for the first time.”

Mali Sastri & Tvíund play Reykjavik, ICELAND

Posted on
Mali is excited to perform in ICELAND for the very first time. Here is the press release for the show:

Mali Sastri is a singer, songwriter, and composer based in Boston, Massachusetts. The members of Tvíund are the musicians Ólöf Þorvarðsóttir and Guðrún Edda Gunnarsdóttir.

On the program are compositions and improvisations for voices, keyboards and violin.

Mali’s work blends and juxtaposes the familiar and accessible songwriting forms heard in popular music with elements more often associated with jazz, classical, musical theater, world music, and the avant-garde.

The music of Tvíund is sincere, often dramatic and largely improvised. It is inspired by classical music, Icelandic folk music and renaissance music.

For this program, Mali will perform four unreleased original pieces for voice and keyboard, and one improvisation. The composed pieces were written between 2017 and the present. The rest of the program will be improvisations by Tvíund for violin, voice and keyboard and improvisations by all three musicians, including a piece for voice, keyboard and dancer.

Doors at 18:30 – The event starts at 19:00 – Tickets are 2.500 kr.

It will be a smorgasbord of the visual, virtual, & visceral!

Having It Out With Melancholy

Posted on


mali from Jaggery here. we have a unique show coming up in the Boston area that i hope you can make.



we will be premiering

Having It Out With Melancholy  ~ a song cycle composed by our friend and local composer Michael J. Veloso.

some backstory:
we met Mike in 2011 when we were the house band for the Post-Meridian Radio Players‘ production of Sleepy Hollow. Mike was the composer for the show, and we loved getting the chance to inhabit his eerie, jagged, intelligent compositions. it felt like a match made in heaven (a headless horseman type of heaven).

we kept in touch with Mike after the show wrapped, and he expressed interest in composing something specifically for us. very flattering!

Mike floated a variety of ideas our way ~ ideas generally based on literature. when he suggested setting to music a poem cycle by American poet Jane Kenyon chronicling her struggles with depression and aptly titled Having It Out With Melancholy, i was sold.

fast-forward five or so years, and the fruits of this collaboration are finally ready for public consumption.

what you can expect from the show:

first off, it’s at the teeny tiny

lilypad • 1353 cambridge street, inman square cambridge, ma

we’ll be performing two sets.
the first will be Mike’s song cycle, which will take you on a thirty-minute journey through angular, unstable rhythms, alternate tonalities, and unconventional song structures, married to sparse, inner-psyche-probing lyrics written by a poet laureate.

the second set will be our own originals ~ and we’ll be selecting our favorites spanning our twelve year discography.

show starts at 7:30pm and is all ages

advance tickets $10 (+ $1.34 processing fee), $15 at the door

as stated above, the lilypad is TINY. we foresee this show selling out and recommend getting your tickets in advance and showing up early to get a good seat. we may only be holding a small amount of tickets at the door.

hope you can make it
