Małpka was born and raised in Africa and classically trained at the age of 7. She left her home in Zimbabwe in 2000 to explore other arenas. Time spent in Australia and South Africa led to an evolution in her appreciation of big band jazz and bouncing brass to crazy psychedelic trance and dusty stomping grounds. Her love for the emerging electronic genres saw her moving to the UK in 2006 for a more complete musical immersion. After reaching saturation point on almost every dance floor imaginable, and it didn't take long; 'Mudstompin Munkee' was born, which would later evolve to the alias Małpka.
