In two weeks’ time, on the 11th September to be precise, Television Malta (TVM) will be airing the 44th edition of L-Għanja tal-Poplu which the Public Broadcasting Services (PBS) is producing specifically for television, in light of the Covid-19 situation in Malta.
This is all set to change, with Festivals Malta officially launching the return of this festival under the new name, “Mużika Mużika – Festival Kanzunetta Maltija”, based on an initiative taken by the Office of the Prime Minister and the Ministry for the National Heritage, The Arts and Local Government.
Late on Friday evening, the elimination phase for this year’s edition of the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza and the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza Junior came to a conclusion with a professional panel of judges, 10 for each competition, selected a total of 40 songs from 66 submissions.
The Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza and the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza Junior, will be taking place for another year, giving the opportunity for singers to perform original songs in Maltese. Both music competitions will take place during the month of September, with the finals set for the 18th and 19th September 2020. They will be broadcast live on NET Television.
