O’Hara’s Quarter – Saturday Late Night (from 7.30pm)
Malaki / Tolü Makay/ Strange Boy
With almost 20 million Spotify streams and support from BBC Radio 1, Dublin rapper Malaki is firmly in the ascendant. But despite his youthful swagger, at 22 Malaki is an eyewitness to the disenfranchisement of Irish youth. His brutally honest music tackles themes of transformation and toxic masculinity with biting quips and astonishing ingenuity.
Tolü Makay is a major new presence on the Irish music scene. Her spell-binding cover of the Saw Doctors ‘N17’, with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra, hit No. 1 on the Irish Airplay and iTunes charts. Further success followed in 2021 with singles such as ‘Used to Be’, TV appearances on Other Voices, The Late Late Show, and The Tommy Tiernan Show, and a sold-out nationwide tour.
On his debut album ‘Holy/Unholy’, Limerick City rapper Strange Boy marries traditional Irish instrumentation and arrangements with powerful social commentary. The result is a beautifully raw introduction to an authentically honest artist.
