KKI 2012: Having a Look at 'Għidli Int'Written by Marc Calleja Bayliss
Ira Losco, Lawrence Gray, Mike Spiteri, Claudette Pace, Claudia Faniello, Miriam Christine, Eleanor Cassar, Mark Tonna and Annabelle have one thing in common and that is that they all have managed to win the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza in the past couple of years noting that they have represented the local music scene with the best possible tracks possible featuring a mixture of beautiful lyrics to compliment serenading music. Seeing such high profiles artists winning the competition is very intriguing and noting that most of them were newcomers to the local music scene, going onto win other showcases such as the Malta Eurovision Song Contest following their appearances here. The Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza remains to be one of the most significant dates in terms of the music calender because it remains to be a major force in terms of representing the Maltese language, an element that ultimately speaks volumes about the heritage of any country. escflashmalta.com is proud to be covering this years' edition of the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza for the third year running as we give all of the finalists the exposure they deserve in the long run. The fourth entry to be analysed is the one entitled 'Għidli Int' written by Augusto Cardinali and performed by none other than Julie Pomorski.
In my opinion, this has to be the most complex and different from all of the track competing in this years' edition of the competition noting that it speaks about this person who has not always done the right thing in life, hoping to turn back time and review every wrong decision taken up. Life is never easy and the cards that are dealt to a person might not always live up to the expectations that many are led to believe and that is why, extra courage has to be summed up in order for the right path to be chosen. Turning to a friend will always help and although in this case, the friend might be more of a self-explanatory figure, one would definitely understand the whole concept. The track easily translates into 'You Tell Me' hence why there is a somewhat secondary figure in the track itself. The songwriter of this song is Augusto Cardinali, an individual whose work in the field of music needs no introduction noting that he has took part in the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza on a number of occasions with his best result coming a couple of years ago thanks to Claire Caruana whose song Arpeġġ finished in third position. Normally, he co-writes with Giovann Attard and they do have a track together but he is flying solo with this one actually.
Moving onto the performer of the track, what an astonishing return from someone who looked to be one of the most dominant figures in the local music scene just a couple of years back. Julie Pomorski first came to prominence when she won the Għanja tal-Poplu competition seven years ago in 2005 with a track entitled Żewġ Qagħqiet which was composed and penned by the same Augusto Cardinali. Trust is an important issue with a number of performers and it seems that she has continuously worked with the individual noting that her success in the Maltese language has always come with him. Just two years following her victory in the competition, she returned to a much more successful music showcase noting that she entered the Malta Song for Europe for the very first time with the song Look At Me written by the popular Philip Vella, who wrote the music to five Eurovision entries for Malta from 2000 till 2008. Julie has come a long way since then noting that even her performances have drastically improved. She has been busy dealing with a number of things in the past couple of years but this is promising to be a comeback, one which will get her back into the field. Just a gentle reminder that the song that she will be performing in the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza bears the name Għidli Int and will be performed later into the night within position eighteen. You can see the official video of the song just below and stay tuned to escflashmalta.com as well as the page of the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza for more updates in the coming days.
