NYC’s rising electro-tropical star Maluca Mala recently posed for French magazine Jalouse.

Since her 2009 hit single “El Tigeraso,” an eletronic-mambo collaboration with Diplo, we’ve been eagerly keeping an eye on Maluca‘s career.

For Jalouse, the Dominican Republic-born 29-year-old, who has been compared to M.I.A., Santigold and Lady Gaga, was shot by Wade Oates, Virgins guitarist.
