In the words of Richard Stilgoe, it seems that there's a light at the end of the tunnel wherever the 2014 edition of the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza is concerned with the organising committee chaired by Claudette Buttigieg publishing an updated list of semi-finalists. This comes into effect for the simple reason that each vocalist is only permitted to perform just ONE song from the television phase onwards.

At a glance, it seems that out of the SEVEN songs that Domenique had initially qualified with to the second phase, there will still be THREE in the competition with "Mara" composed by Philip Vella to the lyrics of Paul Ellul being the one she will be performing herself, "Ħamsin Sena Nazzjon" composed by Mark Spiteri Lucas to the lyrics of Paul Ellul being performed in a duet featuring Kaya and Nicole Brincat and "Passaġġ" written by Clinton Paul with a yet to be announced performer.

In the meantime, Josef Tabone has decided to withdraw his second song "Orrizonti" composed by Minik to the lyrics of Stephen Baldacchino as initially reported on escflashmalta.com earlier this morning, meaning that another five entries have been brought into the list, according to the number of points received during the second phase of the competition where the judges were; Olivia Lewis, Andrew Attard, Mro Maurizio Schembri, Sharon Deguara Cipriott and Noel D’Anastas.

Aħjar - Simone Gauci (Mark Spiteri Lucas / Rita Pace)

Biċċa Minni - Geordie DeBono (Renato Briffa / Mark Amaira)

Daqs Xulxin - Charlene Cardona (Minik / Joe Chircop)

Tfajla - Donna (Ray Agius / Paul Ellul)

Tħobbni Kif Jien - Phylisienne Brincat (Philip Vella / Christopher Azzopardi)

Vagabond - Josef Tabone (Clinton Paul)

The FIVE entries that have now managed to sneak into the Top 30 are none other than; "Ensemble" composed by Minik to the lyrics of Stephen Baldacchino with vocals provided by Johanna Galea, "Ġrajjiet" composed by Minik to the lyrics of Stephen Baldacchino with vocals provided by Michela Dallia, "Ħolma ta' Nazzjon" composed by Mark Debono to the lyrics of Rita Pace with vocals provided by Cherylis Camilleri, "Miraklu" composed by Gillian Attard to the lyrics of Rita Pace with vocals provided by Ashlee Amber and "Ngħidulek Grazzi" composed by Minik to the lyrics of Stephen Baldacchino.

The final change that we could denote in the list below is that Geordie DeBono has opted to keep "Tħobbni Kif Jien" composed by Philip Vella to the lyrics of Christopher Azzopardi, in the competition with veteran performer; Phyllisienne Brincat. Only two songs remain without a performer at the moment, those being the aforementioned "Passaġġ" and "Mixja li Bdiet" composed by Renato Briffa to the lyrics of Alfred E Baldacchino.

The Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza is thought to be one of the finest musical institutions in the country noting that original tracks in Maltese are promoted. Some of the most recent winners of the esteemed competitions are none other than Amber, Mike Spiteri, Deborah C and Annabelle Debono with the most successful songwriters along the years being none other than Ray Agius, Mark Spiteri Lucas and Joe Chircop respectively. In recent years, the event has been supported greatly by escflashmalta.com with two board members present in the committee but for the first time in three years, coverage will be from an outsiders' point of view with the coverage being tweaked ever so slightly in order to promote the acts which will be selected.

The Committee of the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza led by Chairman Mark Azzopardi received a total of seventy-nine (79) entries, from which eight (8) were submitted into the Teenage Category leaving the other seventy-one (71) in the Established Category. It is quite intriguing to note that this is quite a disappointing figure considering that over a hundred (100) songs were submitted in totality over the past three years, signalling that the popularity might be waning, something which is rather unfortunate. The jury for the first phase of the competition included none other than Deborah C, winner of the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza 2012; John Perici Calascione, a Disc Jockey; Darren Carabott, student and Kevin Azzopardi, a musician who was also a judge during the second phase last year.

Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for all of the latest news about this years' edition of the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza which will take place during the Independence festivities in September.

Malta: More Drama Airing This Evening

Five years ago, a student reading for a degree at the University of Malta was still in secondary school, preparing to sit for the Ordinary Levels which in turn lead to post-secondary education and this particular element denotes that whilst the years speed ahead, the individual grows older and wiser. At this particular point in time, students are getting ready to sit for their examinations, ones which will make or break the future and sitting down on the sofa or an armchair at the end of a hard working day will surely be pivotal to the relaxation of the being. One of the best ways to relax is surely through watching the hit drama musical series known as D.R.E.A.M.S written by Michael Vella Haber and Evelyn Saliba La Rosa with production credit going to the notable company, Rewind. Original compositions by Maestro Ray Agius are a definite aid to getting the whole point across and considering the questions that have been raised since the beginning of the series, it is not wonder why the audiences just cannot help but tune in and watch. This evenings’ episode, the fourteenth of the series will be airing at 21:30 CET on Television Malta, the national broadcaster.

On this weeks’ episode of the series, the focus will be on the students attending sixth form noting that they continue to face situations which are true and very much real. Amber (Celine Cuschieri) is a first year student and part of the trio that are emerging as quite dynamic but she seems to be the one missing out on all the positives in life and as she continues to explain her bruises to her father, Samuel (Joseph Fenech), belief might be too strong a word. Speaking about first year students, then comes Saidah (Drizilla Bakoush) whom as many have realised in the past couple of episodes, has shown a lot of interest towards Keith (Leander Schembri), although the male teen definitely has something else up his sleeve having started conversations which instil him as a true racist and unwilling to accept diversity in society. This relationship, if it could be really called that is just a ploy which she is falling to rapidly despite the positive advice given by her best friends. 

In the meantime, Brandon (Jean Pierre Cassar) and Antoinette (Annalise Psaila) are feeling very uncomfortable as they come across each other in classes after dinner with the parents and the relationship is very much hanging by a thread at this moment in time. It will be quite interesting to see how it will evolve in the next couple of episodes. The story behind Alex (Luke Brincat) will be evolving more in this weeks’ episode with his mothers’ confidante Alistair (Karl Schembri) seemingly analyzing his every move. The last four individuals who will seemingly be involved this week are Patsy-May (Analise Mifsud) and Maria (Marie-Clare Sammut) whose relationship might be rekindling as well as Letizia (Cherylis Camilleri) and Mandy (Nakita Grima), the latter who has been told to stay away from the formers’ house but somewhat disobeys orders. Do not miss this evenings' episode which is set to air just after the news bulletin at around 21:30 CET on Television Malta. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for more news about the musical drama series.

Malta: Social Situations Deepen This Evening

2012, a year which many people would relate to due to different experiences but nevertheless, it might not have been as feasible with certain sitatuations that came about but one has to denote that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. On the other hand, 2013 is already posing a challenge but one has the possibility to write out their daily life as each being is given a brand new book with blank pages. Difficulties should be faced head on, and no one should run away because that would prove the individual o be cowardly and costly in the long run. For the past couple of weeks, several individuals are tuned to Television Malta on a Wednesday evening in order to watch another episode of the hit musical drama series known as D.R.E.A.M.S written by Evelyn Saliba la Rosa and Michael Vella Haber with music composed by Maestro Ray Agius.  The series has revealed a number of tangled webs and this evening will not prove to be any different as social situations continue to delve even further especially amongst the younger generation in the storyline.

Following last weeks' episode, it seems that the attention once more turns on the characters who have become a part of the routine clique including Alex (Luke Brincat) who is given yet another assignment with Jade Vella Petroni (Rachel Genovese). The issues between these two characters have never been fully resolved due to the fact that Alex does not want to giveaway his life secrets and thus leaves Jade in the dark. It will be quite interesting to see whether they will be able to work together this time round. Nevertheless, Alex continues to make enemies in the form of Jasmine (Rachael Tedesco Triccas) after telling her something which causes her to worry, seemingly seeking the comfort of Alex (Mikhail Attard) but, will he manage to calm her down or will his efforts burn to the ground? In the meantime, many people will definitely be looking forward to the meeting between Antoinette Balzan (Annalise Psaila) and family of Brandon Cutajar (Jean Pierre Cassar) hoping that first impressions will be positive especially having enlisted the help of Tiffany (Kristen Camilleri). Outside of the school walls, there will be another meeting between Emma (Kayleigh Cassar) and her cousin, Dorianne (Maria Farrugia) with more secrets of the past seemingly uncovered. Do not miss this evenings' episode which is set to air just after the news bulletin at around 21:30 CET on Television Malta. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for more news about the musical drama series.

Malta: The Musical Drama Returns for Another Week

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.

Malta: Third Episode of Musical Drama Tonight

Fall has become one of the most intriguing elements in between seasons and this is due to the fact that the younger demographic is known to return to school whilst at the same time that the media is picking itself up and creating a brand new schedule for itself. Many people during the week, find it somewhat difficult to adapt to their routines and therefore, there is nothing better than a little bit of a rest mid-week to ensure that final dose of energy that will keep the individual on the go prior to the weekend where relaxation should then ultimately take centre stage. The hit musical drama series entitled D.R.E.A.M.S plays a pivotal role in the current television schedule noting that the script written by Michael Vella Haber and Evelyn Saliba La Rosa is as real as can be and tries to analyse the lives of upcoming individuals within the world itself. In the past two weeks, characters from the first season were given continuation whilst brand new individuals were introduced and a slight story to begin their journey. All of the songs in series are composed by Maestro Ray Agius to the lyrics of the scriptwriters which have proven to be very popular.

The shot taken above is from the second episode as Jade Vella Petroni (Rachel Genovese) got into a little bit of a tussle in class with Carlo Francolanza (Joe Tanti) who becomes the new English lecturer following the promotion of Robert Soler (Andre Penza) to headmaster of the sixth form. The epitome of the third episode seems to be related towards the latter character mentioned actually especially now that problems seem to be brewing up in the Soler household now that the pictures which had been deliberately taken have officially come out in the open where they could play harm on the relationship between Gloria (Joanne Busuttil) and Robert. It seems that relationships will be the ones encountering problems in this episode because it seems that the love between Brandon Cutajar (Jean Pierre Cassar) and Antoinette Balzan (Analise Psaila) is somewhat fading into jealousy because of a former flame, Tiffany (Kristen Camilleri). It seems that Tiffany is just trying to be a good friend and thus tries to convince Antoinette this but will she succeed in doing so? The final element to be analysed even further is the upcoming school election noting the competition between Jade Vella Petroni and Chloe Stafrace (Michela Dalli). Will one be able to come out ahead of the other in the long run or will there be surprises in store?
