Malia (born 1978) is a Malawian singer and songwriter. She has released seven studio albums.
Malia’s mother is Malawian and her father is from the United Kingdom. She moved to London when she was a teenager. After finishing school, Malia pursued a career in music. She worked as a waitress while she organized a band to accompany her, singing ballads and jazz standards in bars and clubs around London. During a visit to New York City, she heard a pop-jazz track sung in French by vocalist Liane Foly that had been produced by André Manoukian.

Her subsequent releases, Echoes of Dreams (2004) and Young Bones (2007), found favor among jazz fans across Europe.
