Every year brings with it a number of events, festivals and lots of new material that many appreciate and play over and over throughout the year. The editorial board of escflashmalta.com decided to have a look back at the main highlights of 2015, the year in which no Malta Eurovision festival was held because it was held back in late 2014 but other annual competitions keeping the singers busy such as; l-Għanja Tal-Poplu, Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza, the Summer Hit Song Contest and for the very first time a singers competition for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest. There were quite a number of events that kept our site busy and also our readers on the lookout for the next event.
The year surely started in full swing for Amber who after winning the right to represent Malta in November of 2014, a lot of work was done to ensure that the song is given the right boost and everything would be ready for the big night in Vienna. Sadly, Malta finished in 11th place in the semi-final and missed out on a chance to compete in the grand final in Vienna but this whole experience was surely one to treasure for the Maltese ‘Warrior’ and as we head into 2016, Amber is ready to release her first singe ‘What They Say’ by the same team behind ‘Warrior’, Elton Zarb and Matthew Mercieca.
The first local festival of the year, happened to be one in Maltese in 2015 in the name of ‘L-Għanja Tal-Poplu’, a festival that has been going for a number of years and has a good following thanks to the importance it gives to the themes of the songs. The winner of the festival was the song ‘Ġismi’ interpreted by newcomer Ecca Muscat. Mark and Matthew Pellicano’s composition attracted a lot of attention from the beginning, thanks to its graphic theme which deals with sexual abuse in fact, Mark Pellicano, the author behind this number won the prestigious award for the best social theme in the festival. Raquel Galdes finished as the first runner up with the song ‘Ċans Ieħor’ which was penned by Daniel Paul Farrugia and Norbert Borg, whilst Rita Pace ended in third place with ‘Battibekk’ she wrote along side Emil Calleja Bayliss and Paul Attard.
Following this event, the finalists of other competition were announced but the attention turned to towards the Junior Malta Eurovision Song Contest, where for the very first time 20 singers competed for the right to represent Malta in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in Bulgaria. The three favourites from the get go where, Christina Magrin, Veronica Rotin and Destiny Chukunyere, and these three super talented girls surely did not disappoint as they belted out their number and managed to finish in the top three positions. Destiny Chukunyere was the one who ended up on top. After consultation with her team, PBS selected the song that Destiny was going to sing in Bulgaria which was composed by Elton Zarb and penned by Matthew Mercieca, the team behind Malta’s last two Junior Eurovision entries and Malta’s 2015 Eurovision entry.
Destiny gave her input in the song to both in the composition and also with the lyrics, these prooved to be vital in coming up with a number that suits Destiny’s voice and personality. The creation of a memorable, catchy number in terms of ‘Not My Soul’ was surely a successful formula – Destiny arrived in Bulgaria as one of the top favourites to win the Junior Eurovision for the second time for Malta and she did not let anyone down. She delivered the performance of a lifetime and won the competition with the biggest score to date – managing the rare feat of winning both the public vote and the jury vote. The win was well merited, throughout that week in Bulgaria, Destiny was nicknamed mini Aretha Franklin and we’re sure we will be hearing more of her in the years to come.
The annual Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza saw a number of new names in the competition, mixed with others who were no strangers to this festival. The result was slightly unexpected as Analise Mifsud’s self penned ‘Kuraġġ’ won the judges hearts with her simple yet very well sung number, a song that speaks about finding the inner strength to fight when you hit an all time low. This was Annalise’s second participation in this event and one can say she went by unnoticed until the final night where she emerged victorious over Dorcas Debono’s ‘Ma Ninsa Qatt’ written by Dominic Cini and Rita Pace which finished in second place and Dario Bezzina’s ‘Dment Li Malti Ħaj’ written by Ray Agius, which was seen as one of the top contenders from the beginning.
Two other winners who emerged in the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza were Mikaela Bajada who won the New Talent Section and Paolo Micallef who triumphed in the second edition of Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza Junior. Mikaela Bajada reached the finals of the prestigious event and went on to win this section with the song ‘Għandi Ħolma’, a composition of Mark Spiteri Lucas & Francesco Pio Attard.
On the other hand, Paolo Micallef won the judges with his quirky number ‘Maġija B’Tekonloġija’ a composition of Augusto Cardinali and Etienne Micallef – he gave a very intriguing performance as through it he gave the song life. This was Paolo’s second participation in the event and surely celebrated his lucky birthday on the day of the festival. In second place was Nicole Falzon with the beautiful ballad 'Ngħix Ħolma', a composition of Mark Spiteri Lucas and Emil Calleja Bayliss, and in third place, another ballad, this time with a social theme in the form of "Inħobbkom It-Tnejn", a composition of Dominic Cini and Chris Azzopardi, with vocals provided by Rutger Scicluna Galea.
The Summer Hit Song Contest returned for the second consecutive after having a break of nearly three years. The winner of this edition was the song ‘Tabula Rasa’ sung by the bubbly Julie Pomorksi who won her second festival, ten years after triumphing in L-Għanja Tal-Poplu as a young teenager. Her number was composed by Augusto Cardinali and Giovann Attard, she also had her input in both the composition and the lyrics. It was the first time for Julie, giving a go at songwriting and with the help of Augusto and Giovann, she wrote the beautiful and intriguing ‘Tabula Rasa’. The runner up of the competition was Michela Galea, who also managed to win two awards which are unique to local competitions, she won the best duet with ‘Bounce Back’ singing alongside Janvil and also the best Maltese Cover with ‘Għanja’, an original of Nadine Axisa. This composition was by Renato Briffa and Emil Calleja Bayliss. The second runner up of the competition was Danica Muscat with ‘Amour’, a song composed and penned by Philip Vella.
2015 year finished off with the announcement of the 20 finalists of the Malta Eurovision, all fighting for a chance to represent Malta in Stockholm, Sweden among the competitors there’s the return of former Eurovision runner-up Ira Losco, who made her return to the local competition with two numbers after months of speculation of whether she will participate or not. Yet, the race is surely still wide open, with 20 strong numbers and varies styles which appeal to different people – in fact both locals and foreigners discussed how this could be one of the best Maltese national selections in a while. The competition will in fact open the festival season in the fourth weekend of January, with the semi-finals on the 22nd of January and the finals the next day.
One rumour which went round during 2015 was the possible return of the ‘Festival Internazzjonali Tal-Kanzunetta Maltija’ but unfortunately it was not the case, seems that it was put aside for 2015 for some reason or another. A real pity because it gave light to a number of new Maltese songs in the last edition and gave the enthusiasts another festival to look forward to on a national scale. Yet, so far it was not meant to be. Let’s hope that 2015 would be a year were one gets to celebrate through more competitions and more songs to feast the keen Maltese music lover.

Following the success of newcomer Michela Galea, whose entry "Mixja Li Bdiet" composed by Renato Briffa to the lyrics of Alfred E Baldacchino was a worthy winner, it seems that interest is well and truly alive, noting the belief that the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza may once more make a name for itself as a scouting competition, with previous winners including; Amber (ESC 2015), Ira Losco (ESC 2002), Miriam Christine (ESC 1996), Mike Spiteri (ESC 1995) and Fabrizio Faniello (ESC 2001, 2006).

Maestro Ray Agius is one of the most talented songwriters in the local music industry noting that some of his work has represented the country in foreign waters, including Keep Me In Mind performed by Mike Spiteri which achieved tenth place back in 1995 as well as Let Me Fly which was sung by Debbie Scerri landing ninth place back in 1997. He is also the most successful songwriter in the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza having penned a total of six winning entries, the last of which being B'Rieda tal-Azzar performed by Mike Spiteri in 2011. At the moment, his latest project is composing the music to the lyrics of Michael Vella Haber and Evelyn Saliba la Rosa for the series D.R.E.A.M.S which airs every Wednesday on Television Malta at 20:45 CET. escflashmalta.com has always been proud to support this project due to the fact that it gives space to the younger generation of performers. This evening will mark the twenty-ninth (29th) episode of the series are the recent developments in storylines continue to develop and evolve accordingly.
Alex (Luke Brincat) seems to be the focal point of the story at the moment especially after the revelation that he comes from a long line of royal descendants. Jade (Rachel Genovese), Katia (Jade Cini) and Andre' (Jervis Galea) were the last to see him as they were having a double date in a restaurant. Unfortunately, the thugs that want to see the dynasty dead including Francalanza (Joe Tanti) managed to force his mother, Gina (Jospehine Fuller) to get him into the car with them. His location is still unknown but nevertheless, the audience knows that thus far, he is still alive. As his parents are re-united in this upcoming episode, they receive a mysterious package, and with caution, they have to vet the package. In the meantime, Katie and Jade are still trying to grasp the whole situation and thus snoop around ever so slightly to try and understand better.
Two weeks ago, Antoinette (Annalise Psaila) was visited by a talent scout (Dominic Cini) in order to try and lure her to the United States of America where there she would be studying to improve her voice and use it in the best possible manner. She has yet to tell her parents about the opportunity that has been granted to her but nevertheless approaches her mother, Theresa (Shirley Blake). Could it be the reaction expected by Antoinette or will everything go swiftly? On the other hand, Hilda (Evelyn Saliba La Rosa) goes to see her sister in jail to speak of the progress being done with regards to her fellow inmates problems. Elaine (Graziella Zammit), Janet (Donnah Busuttil), Patsy (Analise Mifsud) and Maria (Marie-Claire Sammut) all seem to be entangled in a web, possibly of romance but nevertheless, more problems seem to evolve rather than be solved in this particular situation. Stay tuned for this and more on this evenings' episode of D.R.E.A.M.S. kicking off at around 20:45 CET.

D.R.E.A.M.S has been coined by many as the hit musical drama series on television at the moment noting that the major storylines have somewhat intertwined in the best possible way with the secondary ones making it generally positive and very much realistic. Teenagers have come to evolve throughout the course of time and from the first season to the second there has been a shift, a general sense of growth in thought for each respective character. Problems have come to dictate the lives of many hence why the feeling of the whole show has been somewhat tangible because people could relate to the issues and hand and ultimately seek some form of help. In reality, a brand new year has just started and the outset seems to be in the control of every individual noting that with three hundred and sixty five (365) days in tow, the possibility of re-writing the way ones' life story could unfold is extremely intriguing. Nevertheless, the focus is back to the series produced by Rewind Productions, written by Michael Vella Haber and Evelyn Saliba La Rosa and most notably with a score composed by Maestro Ray Agius.
As the storyline of the new year unfolds, the first episode back seems to be bearing a lot of focus on Amber (Celine Cuschieri) who is of course in sixth form very close friends with Chloe (Michela Dalli) and Lara (Petra Bugeja). The tensions between the three are on the rise with the latter two seemingly making a lot of fuss over the possibility of going to Amber's house who on the other hand is embarrassed at the element of having her mother, Frances (Sabina Attard) in prison due to a crime which she seemingly did not commit. The issue does indeed continue to grow however when her father, Samwel (Joseph Fenech) speaks to his daughter, telling her that he wishes to leave her mother in favour of Pamela (Lara Cuschieri). Amber has to face the tensions and keep the cool in order to live out her life in the best possible manner but how will she manage? In the meantime, Brandon (Jean Pierre Cassar) seems to have a surprise for Antoinette (Analise Psaila), the possibility of moving even further in this relationship which seems to have encountered some bumps will definitely be well appreciated by the audience. Patsy May (Analise Mifsud) is facing a complicated relationship now that Maria (Marie-Claire Sammut) is showing interest and acceptance with her sexuality but, seeing that she is indeed seeing someone is making it more difficult. Philip Roger Triganza III (Damian Buhagiar) believes that his imagination is taking over but does his father (Leo Bartolo) believe his antics? Moving to the adults, it seems that Edward (Manuel Cutajar) is continuously trying to bring the relationship between Robert (Andre Penza) and Gloria (Joanne Busuttil) to an end with his dirty schemes but ultimately, what is his aim? There will be several issues to be dealt with during this episode so make sure to watch as of 20:40 CET on Television Malta. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com in the meantime as we continue to promote the series as it unravels.

December is a time for peace, love and prosperity apart from the surge in economy due to the fact that it has been coined as a season for gift buying whilst tunes in accordance to Christmas are blaring within every department store. Nevertheless, at the end of the evening marks a time of relaxation, pleasure and a hot cut of tea preferably lying down on a bed or a sofa and wrapped up in a blanket. Television offers the warmth that one would enjoy pleasantly and on a Wednesday evening, Television Malta has the perfect programme; D.R.E.A.M.S, the weekly musical drama series which has captured the hearts of the younger demographic because it represents elements of real life, somewhat at a point where one doesn't realise that this is actually happening on television.
Another week has passed and it has been quite an intriguing week noting that the focus continues on the semi-finalists of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest but nevertheless, the issue at hand, this evenings' episode of D.R.E.A.M.S will be focusing a lot on the storyline of Patsy May (Analise Mifsud) in order for the viewers to realise what happened in the past couple of months within her respective life due to the breakup with Maria Sultana (Marie-Clare Sammut) who was still not confident enough of her sexuality to pursue anything too serious and in the eyes of her schoolmates. Nevertheless, Tiffany (Kristen Camilleri) is facing some issues of her own at home noting that she catches her father, Richard (Michael Mock) going out in a sneaky manner and thus wonders whether he has a plan. On the other hand, the focus of the story will be alternating this evening considering that Jasmine (Rachael Tedesco Triccas) will have more problems to deal with but not with her illness, something else which is as detrimental in her persona life. The brand new President of the School Council, Alex (Luke Brincat) takes on his role and prepares a surprise for Jade (Rachel Genovese) but will it be a negative or a positive one? More issues regarding the students with Chloe (Michela Dalli) and Lara (Petra Bugeja) insisting that they visit Amber (Celine Cuschieri) at home but will this be a good idea in the end? There will be several issues to be dealt with during this episode so make sure to watch as of 20:40 CET on Television Malta. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com in the meantime as we continue to promote the series as it unravels.

Patience has indeed been the virtue of many individuals in the past couple of months especially due to the fact that despite the summer months bring about peace, relaxation and frivolous moments, it is known to be a deadpan when it comes to television with most of the notable prime-time series slots that are aired during the autumn and winter months going into hiatus as more filming is completed prior to a return. This has been the case with the popular musical drama series known as D.R.E.A.M.S which has been worked upon by Rewind Productions having a script written by Evelyn Saliba La Rosa and Michael Vella Haber who also pen the lyrics to the original songs which are composed by Maestro Ray Agius and aired weekly as per the requisites of the episode. Another week has gone by and the fans of the series unfortunately had to wait slightly longer for the ninth episode as current affairs took over the national broadcaster but nevertheless, make sure to tune in this evening at 20:40 CET because it has been well worth the wait.
In the previous episode, the focus seemed to be on the election which was hotly contested by a series of candidates including Jade Vella Petroni (Rachel Genovese), Chloe Stafrace (Michela Dalli), Philip Roger Triganza III (Damian Buhagiar), and Lenny (Daniel Testa) but there was a surprise winner, someone completely unexpected in the form of Alex (Luke Brincat) who seems to have made far more enemies than friends by virtue of winning the election. There is something fishy about him that does not really bode well and it will be known in time. Nevertheless, the focus quickly turns to the several storylines in this episode with Hilda (Evelyn Saliba La Rosa) visited by Sally (Nicole Azzopardi), her daughter with a friend, someone completely unexpected, but who? Will she ultimately send them away or will she accept their visit as a means of reconciliation? In the meantime, Emma (Kayleigh Cassar) seems to be having some issues, thinking that her imaginary friend might have returned. She decides on her own will to visit Stephanie (Chelsea Refalo) for a favour, or a heart to heart chat. The problems between Robert (Andre Penza) and Gloria (Joanne Busuttil) continue to grow and it seems that there are heading for disaster. Tune into Television Malta this evening for yet another episode of intrigue of D.R.E.A.M.S where the story keeps on getting deeper. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for more news about the musical drama series.

During the summer months, there had been a growing sense of impatience between fans of the series who have once more become inclined to know the latest about every particular character with many even asking what happened to others who might have not been seen in recent weeks but in actuality, things unfold at a relatively normal pace had it been everyday life and that is why patience becomes an extremely important virtue. Writing becomes part of a person rather than a daily chore and this is surely the case when it comes to the individuals behind the weekly music drama series, with Evelyn Saliba La Rosa and Michael Vella Haber working in unison to create something which teenagers could ultimately relate to within their daily lives. It is imperative that television is seen as a means of how to get particular messages across and being shown on the national television station is definitely a positive. Rewind Productions will be hosting their eight episode of the second season of the music drama D.R.E.A.M.S this evening on Television Malta just after the eight o'clock news.
It has been noted that the present could easily be a reflection of the present and this is surely the case within the storyline that involves the supposed love triangle that involves Robert (Andre Penza), Sue (Ruth Sammut Casingena), Cynthia (Stephanie Attard Vella), Gloria (Joanne Busuttil) and Edward (Manuel Cutajar). It seems that Sue is in some manner trying to rekindle her emotions towards Robert who confronts her and tries to have a conversation with her with the details somewhat mysterious but just as this was set to go further, they are easily interrupted by Cynthia who stops by for a surprise visit. Back to the sixth form, it seems that things are heating up on several levels, the first with Saidah (Drizilla Bakoush) and Keith (Leander John Schembri) who have now officially went out on a date and have learned several things but ultimately, were her friends right about him and how will his character evolve within the general storyline? That is yet to be scene but focus in this episode will be on the day of the election with Chloe (Michela Dalli) and Jade (Rachel Genovese) going head to head against each other. There is clear rivalry going on between them but will one of them win or will there be yet another upset? Another point of attention is in prison with the inmates faces some issues and with somebody somewhat getting hurt. In fact, the focus will is none other than Frances (Sabina Attard) whose former history will be revealed this evening. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com and watch Television Malta at 20:40 CET this evening for another thrilling episode of D.R.E.A.M.S.

The management of time has to be well setup in order to reflex the skills of any individual and considering the work loads that many currently have to concur with, it does come slightly as a surprise to see that everything is ultimately finished with careful, strategic planning. Another week has passed and Wednesday nights, the middle of the week has been known to become lit up with drama during the evening due to the fact that Television Malta has slotted one of their most popular drama series in the prime time slot, making people more anxious to put up their feet, have a rest and enjoy all of the drama as it unfolds on their screens. D.R.E.A.M.S began as a pilot project last year featuring a stellar cast made up of true performers as most of them have the element of being a triple threat meaning that they could act, sing and dance but nevertheless, the emergence of talent has always been exhibited in the script written by Michael Vella Haber and Evelyn Saliba La Rosa with original songs airing each week composed by Ray Agius.
For the past three to four episodes, the focus of the story has surely been on Gloria (Joanne Busuttil) and her husband, Robert (Andre Penza) who seem to be having a lot of underlying issues just about as she made the announcement that they are as a family expecting their first child. Things are marred when they receive photos of Gloria kissing Edward (Manuel Cutajar). Unfortunately, the situation has been getting rather worse but now that Robert has confronted Gloria, will things change back to the way they were? Moving on, another intriguing concept that has been quickly developing is the story between Flavia and Finnigan (Evelyn Saliba La Rosa) who had a falling out because the latter believe that the former was sleeping with her husband, Henry (Stephan Saliba) but in reality, he was actually sleeping with Frank (PJ Xerxen) who just happens to be Flavia's husband giving rise to a seriously complicated matter of sexuality. Student life continues with new character Saidah (Drizilla Bakoush) planning to go out on a date with Keith (Leander John Schembri). It is iimportant to note that Jasmine seemed very tired in the last episode but will she continue to push herself into achieving success for Jade Vella Petroni (Rachel Genovese) with aid being given by several people including Katia (Jade Cini), Jeremy (Mikhail Attard), Karen (Lara Dimech), Brandon (Jean Pierre Cassar) and Antoinette (Analise Psaila) amongst others. One last note is that someone will celebrate their birthday, but who? Stay tuned to Television Malta and catch the latest episode this evening at 20:40 CET on Television Malta.
