Blaise Malaba's Speaker is characterized by his natural stage presence and good projection and articulation. His dramatic range and his high harmonics allow him to compete with Tamino in duets without being eclipsed.

...In contrast, the power and vocal authority of bass Blaise Malaba (the Speaker) is widely convincing...

....While Blaise Malaba added yet another vivid character, this time Abimelec, to his growing list of expectionally well-sung comprimario roles for the company...

"In contrast, bass Blaise Malaba, born in Congo, fulfilling the role of the Mother, looked solid as a soloist and as the base on which the family choir stands." (Translated from Spanish)

La Nacion

La famille d’Anna chante comme un seul homme, y compris la Mère interprétée par la basse congolaise Blaise Malaba (curiosité de la partition de Weill déjà relevée il y a peu à Caen) qui offre des projections profondes et caverneuses...

"Blaise Malaba’s Second Elder was in deliciously inky voice, rich and oaky in his glorious bottom notes, and making characterful contrast..."


"Blaise Malaba was suitably forceful as the Second Elder..."

West Green House Opera

Blaise Malaba was a sober yet warmly supportive presence as Alidoro, despite his youth Malaba created a nicely fatherly feel to the character, and his interventions as Deus-ex-Machina had a nice sympathy to them. Malaba's dark hued voice added a touch of sobriety and sense to the busy excitement of the evening which made a nice contrast.
Planet Hugill

Finally, there was the sobering presence and rich tones of the young Congolese bass Blaise Malaba.
Opera Today

A kind of fairy godfather without a wand, Alidoro is given a dignified, solicitous and sonorous interpretation by Blaise Malaba.
