'Thumka' Gets First Play On BBC Introducing North East!

Updated: Sep 18, 2018

A brand new MARKX track "Thumka" (translated as fight) has been played for the first time on BBC Introducing North East.


The eastern inspired track was written in September 2016 at a songwriting retreat in Andalusia, Spain and is a co-write with the artist Sanila and another writer named Andy Mcneil.


Sanila said via her Facebook page:

"A big thank you to Nick Roberts for playing "THUMKA"on BBC Introducing NE. It was my privilege to co-write this song with my wonderful songwriter friends Andy McNeil & Ian Markx".


MARKX added:

"This was something completely new to me and writing an Eastern inspired track was way out of my comfort zone! However Sanila's cultural influences and unique life story made for a very fun and enjoyable day of writing!"
