Queen Machali


Queen Machali (Tora Woloshin), an artist who was mentored by Simon Cowell on The X Factor, is having her birthday bash and new project launch party here at The Back Room.

Her music is a fresh new blend that features tones from Jazz, R&B, Soul, Rock and Contemporary music.

Queen Machali was the Queen of Tigers. She was a Bengal from India who helped regenerate some of the tiger population. Her mother was the Queen of Queens whom Machali was named after, not to mention the most photographed tiger of all time. Machali received a Lifetime Achievement Award because of her direct involvement in tiger conservation and contributions to the growth of India’s tourism industry.

Lead vocalist Tora Woloshin was mentored by Simon Cowell on The X Factor. The name 'Tora' means tiger in Japanese. Her decision to name the band 'Queen Machali' was based on several factors: the coinciding names, to honor tigers and other endangered species and eventually to save endangered species. Tora has been singing, dancing, acting and modeling since the age of 4 and has toured the world performing covers and originals. She has opened for Ne-Yo, Flo Rida, Method Man and toured the US with major artist, B.O.B. Her interests range from being a race car driver and chef to training and rescuing animals.
