Pride March 2012

I am is the theme for Pride Week 2012.  It is meant to remind everyone that LGBT individuals are part of society - just people, everywhere, living their lives and being themselves.

The only difference is that they still have to fight for rights that other people take for granted -  safe streets and schools, acceptance from parents, being treated equally in employment, recognition of our relationships and families, free healthcare.

The LGBT community in Malta has come a long way.  They are visible as never before and their voices are loud and clear and many.

So come celebrate with them and help make sure that their call for equality gets through to the people who make decisions on their behalf.

Come March with Pride.

Raw Musical Expression

Simon Vella and Mark Rapa collaboration is all about a common desire to interpret music from a wide spectrum of influences in a raw and acoustic way that appeals to mainstream audiences.

Mark - despite being self-taught - has an uncanny ability to mimic techniques of many different styles on the nylon string guitar. He has been entertaining for the last 15 years, primarily as a soloist, with a unique and ever-changing repertoire which is a mix of original compositions and well known classical, Spanish and popular pieces. Meanwhile, having studied classical and jazz music, Simon has gained a reputation for introducing the violin into a number of contemporary musical styles, including a number of award-winning projects.
