Malta: Karen DeBattista Covers Iconic Local Tune


Karen DeBattista, winner of the 2014 edition of L-Għanja tal-Poplu with “Jien Ma Naħdimx”, composed by Mark Scicluna to the lyrics of Rita Pace first emerged onto the scene by making the finals of the Summer Hit Song Contest back in 2011, an experience which she holds close to heart. She has well and truly won several fans since then with her Official Facebook Page obtaining more than 600 followers in about 4 months.

In a concert organised by the Band Club of Balzan in recognition of the feast “Annunciation of Our Lady”, Karen DeBattista was invited to perform two songs; “Fejn Staħbejtli” composed by Mark Spiteri Lucas to the lyrics of Paul Ellul as well as the “Ave Maria” which brought an end to the proceedings. The former is a song which has barely been touched upon since Ira Losco triumphed in the 2001 edition of the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza but nevertheless, this mysterious gem was polished with a LIVE band under the direction of Maestro Ray Cremona. We urge you to stay tuned to even through Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news as soon as it becomes available.
