The Organ originates from Chester Cathedral and was shipped to Malta in 1854. There is a strong tradition that while in Chester, it was played by G.F. Handel when on his way to Dublin for the first public perform…

Tribali new album – THE TRAVELLER

Image
Tribali launched their much anticipated album entitled - The Traveller at Medasia. This is the third album from the world music band . The 13 track album promises to be a continuation, or rather an evolvement of their previous works which have been incredibly received both locally and foreign territories. Whilst retaining their typical sound with the use of instruments now synonymous with Tribali such as the Sitar, Didgeridoo, morchunga and percussions the Traveller also includes the hang, nylon and 12 string guitars, trumpet as well as the evident  use of more vocals in their tracks.

Tribali said - The Traveller is probably harmonically richer than the previous albums as we stirred away from the mono-tonal constraints giving us more room to develop our song writing. We also made use of other genres crossing over to world music giving us more freedom of expression and avoiding the pigeon hole screening the labels enjoy so much. Infact this album has a crossover of incorporated styles …

The People Voice Concert

Image
The People Voice Concert under the musical direction of Sigmund Mifsud, will present a musical journey of political rock music that have brought forward a political message and influenced people thoughts.

The idea of the concert came about from two of Sigmund favourite rock numbers which he always refrained from including in a concert since they have been warped by our two main political parties, The wind of change by The Scorpions and the Final Countdown by Europe. The concept of this concert opens up this possibility.

The repertoire will be a mix of hits and not so known songs that have a political notion from The Beatles, Queen, Pink Floyd, U2, Sam Cooke, John Lennon, Ozzy Osborne and obviously The Wind of Change and the Final Countdown.

The 30 piece light orchestra , under the baton of Sigmund Mifsud, will set the right platform for the interpretation of these songs from Kenneth, lead singer of group Fire, Paul Sky from Colourblind, Daryl from 12th Ode, Paul from Purple Haze, Janvi…

Academy of Dance Arts Rewards Dedication and Improvement

Image
Awards were given following successful production of Dance to Oz.

Students at the Academy of Dance Arts recently took to the stage at St Monica School in Gzira to perform a delightful selection of ballet, jazz, Spanish and contemporary pieces.

Following months of rehearsals and a dynamic creative process involving both the students and teachers, the production was performed to hundreds of spectators and deemed to be an all-out success.

“We have been working on the show since last summer and wanted to involve all the students, across the various levels,” explains the academy’s principal, Rowena Grech. “I believe this encourages students to work together and helps the little ones to look up to the older ones, in the hope they will be like them one day. It is also important for children to have the chance to express themselves on stage as dance is, ultimately, a performing art.”

For this reason, the team decided to adapt the Wizard of Oz storyline and transform it into a colourful, comic a…

Equinox Trio in Distant Sounds

Image
Distant Sounds will showcase music from Malta, China and Australia performed by Equinox Trio on Friday, 18 May, 8pm at Sagrestia Vaults, Valletta Waterfront. The trio will perform works by Peter Sculthorpe, Bright Sheng, Douglas Knehans, Charles Camilleri and Ruben Zahra. The concert is organised by Barocco Cultural Events.

The programme opens with Dream Tracks. Since 1988, Peter Sculthorpe wrote a series of works inspired by Kakadu National Park, in the north of Australia. Some of these works have melodic material in common, the contours of each line usually being transformed in some way, both within pieces and in successive pieces. Sculthorpe has come to regard these melodies as songlines or dreaming tracks. The second trio on the programme is trio New York by Charles Camilleri. In 1971, Camilleri embarked on a series of chamber works amongst which was this trio which was left unfinished. The composer recalls how during a visit to New York in 1998, the energy and hustle and bustle of…
