After the launch of her debut album original songs in Maltese entitled ‘Hawn Jien’, singer/songwriter Corazón followed up its success with a concert at the Casino Maltese last January. The location offered the ideal setting for this collection of songs which treat diverse social themes and profound lyrics.
Corazón has never shyed away from singing about what is usually left unsaid, giving a voice to the prostitute (in Illejla B’Xejn), to the unborn child (in Hawn Jien) and even to the woman scorned (in Marì) amongst others. The concert included popular songs such as Tal-Aħħar and Fid-Dar tan-Nanna and the launch of two brand new songs which were included in the second edition of the album.
All songs were performed live by a group of talented musicians; Walter Vella on saxophone, Carlo Bugeja on keyboards, Simon Sammut on the double-bass, Samuel Attard on the drums, Jimmy Bartolo on guitars and Dominic Galea on the piano. Dominic Galea also took care of the direction and arrangements. The songs were taken to a different level with the presentation of introductory theatrical pieces scripted by Trevor Zahra and directed by Mario Micallef.
The concert featured also several well-known personalities such as Walter Micallef, Peppi Azzopardi, Hermann Bonaċi, Frida Cauchi, Louise Doneo, Mark Doneo, Joe Galea, Antonella Galea Loffreda, Lilian Vassallo, Clive Piscopo, Nathalie Micallef amongst others. Corazón felt that the best way to present her songs was to an intimate audience of around 300 people.
This concert was sold out a week before the performance and many were disappointed for not managing to find available tickets. For all who missed this concert and also for those who were present and would like to rekindle memories of this experience, the concert will be aired on Sunday 21st June at 20.40 and on Wednesday 24th June at 22.00 on TVM2. We urge you to stay tuned to escflashmalta.com even through Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news about the local music scene.
