Katarína Máliková composes, plays and sings music, which resonates with folklore, art-pop, classical and world music. She comes from Polomka in the Horehronie region where she grew up surrounded by mountains. The mysterious countryside and songs of her native region left a strong echo in her works. When her debut album named Pustvopol was released in November 2016 by Slnko Records, it immediately attracted the attention of both the media and audiences and became one of the top titles in Slovakia. “The works of Katarína Máliková are a brilliant convergence of excellent musical education, unusual sensitivity to the specifics of traditional Slovak music and a creative mind. She is extremely consistent as an author and performer.
