GħTP 2015: Deo Grech Hosts a Special on F Living

'The Celebrity Night' is a weekly television programme which has become somewhat synonymous with Saturday evening, is broadcast on F Living Channel. The series which officially kicked off at the beginning of October revolves around the one-to-one interviews, which speak of class, decadence and wit, and have become synonymous with Deo Grech's presenting style. On the 21st March, Sir Temi Żammit Hall at the University of Malta was the backdrop for this year's edition of L-Għanja tal-Poplu, a local music competition with 16 talented acts, whose lyrics inspired those present in the hall, and those who will be watching on television in a couple of days, noting that the event will be airing on TVM2 on the 31st March. This week, Deo Grech is welcoming the artists who finished in the top positions; Ecca Muscat, who was the winner with the song "Ġismi" written by Mark & Matthew Pellicano; Raquel, the first runner-up with "Ċans Ieħor", written by Norbert Borg & Daniel Paul Farrugia as well as Rita Pace, the second runner-up with "Battibekk", written by Emil Calleja Bayliss, Paul Attard and Rita Pace. This and much more during this week's episode of 'The Celebrity Night' which airs on Saturday night at 20:30 on F Living Channel.

Eurovision 2015: Amber Films Postcard for Malta

At the end of 2014, the jury and public agreed unanimously that "Warrior", written by Elton Zarb and Matthew Mercieca with vocals provided by Amber, would represent Malta at the Eurovision Song Contest in Vienna, Austria. The journey is heading into it's final stages, as the female vocalist has been busy with the music video launch, the release of the digital single on iTunes and Spotify, and most recently the recording of the postcard. The introductory clip, shot by the host broadcaster of the international event, ORF is split up into two parts, the first part set in the silent city of Mdina, Malta's former capital city, and the second part set in the picturesque town of Zell Am See, a ski resort in Austria. We urge you to stay tuned to escflashmalta.com even through Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news about Malta's participation in the upcoming edition of the Eurovision Song Contest.

Malta: Nadine Axisa Issues a New Music Video

It is fair to say that musicians have a yearning to record an album while active in the music industry, and although this feat is not easy to achieve, it is not impossible. This statement is echoed by several, but most recently by Nadine Axisa, a veteran female singer whose work in the festival circuit has been well documented throughout the past twenty years. “Velvet”, a subtle name which evokes a sense of peace and tranquility is the name that the female artist chose to name her debut album, a collection of 12 original songs, all of which are ‘jazz-infused’. 12 months on, and Nadine Axisa is still riding high on the positive critical acclaim received, so much so, that the project has led to the release of a music video, this time for the song “Stormy Night” with music and lyrics by Kris Spiteri. The professional cut is mainly based on the sound, rather than theatrics and hence, one could see a cluster of musicians, well representative of those who were involved in the production of the song. We urge you to watch the music video below, purchase a copy of the album through iTunes, and also stay tuned to escflashmalta.com even through Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news.

Malta: Andy Shaw and Gaia Cauchi Record Duet

Andy Shaw, a skilled 14-year old male singer/songwriter whose breakthrough appearance was at the 2014 Junior Eurovision Song Contest as a special guest, and Gaia Cauchi, a female singer/songwriter best known for winning the 2013 Junior Eurovision Song Contest with "The Start" co-written with Elton Zarb, Gillian Attard and Matthew Mercieca (Muxu), have decided to share their mutual love towards music, by recording "Love Me Like You Do", a song from the highly acclaimed motion picture 'Fifty Shades of Grey' as a duet. Recorded, mixed and produced by Cyprian Cassar at Tenishia Studios, the release of "Love Me Like You Do" is supported with a monochromatic music video, specifically created by Joseph Agius to reflect the lyrical context of the song. "Love Me Like You Do", written by Max Martin, Savan Kotecha, Ilya Salmanzadeh, Ali Payami and Tove Nilsson is an emotional ballad which would be best described as synthpop, originally interpreted by British female singer/songwriter Ellie Goulding.  As a duet, Andy and Gaia gave the song a completely different feel, altering the meaning of the lyrics ever so slightly, encompassing the true meaning of friendship, rather than staying loyal to the lustful meaning, as exhibited in the original version. We urge you to stay tuned to escflashmalta.com even through Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news about the local music scene.
