French Funk’s finest are back! Formed in 1987, the “Malka Family” collective includes approx. 13 musicians and singers. Their first album “Malka on the Beach” was self-released in 1991, and following the success of their live shows, the band signed to Warner Music France to release their second album “Tous des Oufs”. The band became the cornerstone of the Funk scene in France. Touring all around France and Europe, they shared the stage with artists like Daft Punk, Manu Dibango, Roy Ayers, and Supreme NTM. In 1994 they returned to their indie roots with the French Funk label “Big Cheese Records”, with whom they released their third album “Fricassée 2 Funk, Fracassée 2 Freaks”, followed in 1997 by their fourth album “Fotoukonkass” on RCA/BMG, after which they split up.

After a 18 years hiatus, during which “Funk” had reclaimed the spotlight (thanks to Daft Punk, Marc Ronson’s Uptown Funk, Bruno Mars, etc.), French Funk’s finest re-formed in 2015, performed a couple of shows and released their fifth album “Le Retour du Kif” in 2017, which was followed by an extensive tour including stops at major festivals like “Jazz à Vienne”. Last December, Malka Family released their 6th album “Superlune” (2021), which they will promote by going on tour in 2022.
