Malija are a drummer-less trio featuring Mark Lockheart (woodwind), Liam Noble (piano) and Jasper Hoiby (bass). The band found its roots within Lockheart's 5 piece band, working together on his 2009 album In Deep, which also featured Jasper Hoiby's long-running trio Phronesis. From there, the three went away to hone new compositions, and have returned as Malija (MArk, LIam and JAsper).

We're featuring their new album Instinct on ABC Jazz, their second release to date - and it features new original music composed by each member.
