Brodu is a five piece Maltese Band founded by Mark Abela aka iz-Żiżża in 2012.

Mark has been in the music scene for quite a number of years and besides being a very active musician, he had always been composing music, which is what brought the band together for this project.

They made their public debut at Lissen Festival 2012. They later appeared at the Zion Club supporting Iskay.
