ONE Television, is one of the key elements behind the success of the Għanja tal-Poplu competition and promoting upcoming local talent is quite important because one has to preserve the language that has been terms as a brand identity for several years. The renowned local competition is just one of two in the music industry and has been well regarded by musicians, songwriters and performers alike. The organisation of the showcast last year was remarkable and one could definitely notice that the year off was a time to rebrand, and come back stronger. At the end of the evening, the top three were none other than Kultural, Grecia Bezzina and Kantilena and the people somewhat seemed content by the proceedings of the evening.

The 37th edition of the Għanja tal-Poplu will be taking place 20th April 2013 in the same aforementioned venue and escflashmalta.com is proud to be a main promotional partner.

The Maltese language has always been an underdog but managed to survive each time, coming up stronger and more beneficial than any other counterparts which have proven otherwise. Discussions about this element have always come about especially from within some of the most distinctive individuals in the local music industry because the only competitions that tend to see through this promotion are none other than the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza and the Għanja tal-Poplu. The focus this time round is on the latter with thirty six years of history behind it and clear concepts with regards to live instruments. In fact, the committee thought best to reinvent themselves earlier this year as the competition took place within the Sir Temi Żammit Hall in Msida and aired on ONE Television, as well through an online webcast in order to reach several people whose love for the Maltese language continues across the globe.

The 37th edition of the Għanja tal-Poplu will be taking place 20th April 2013 in the same aforementioned venue and escflashmalta.com is proud to be a main promotional partner presenting you the rules and regulations in an exclusive manner.

The jury will be responsible for noting the lyrics, the music and the combination and therefore it is imperative that the submitted production will have a merge of the two together combined by good vocals. Whilst there is no real element of what the subject should be about, the competition does suggest that people stick to a social theme which will also include a separate award. This years' edition proved to be quite intriguing to be honest noting that there was a renewed interest. At the end of the competition, third place was given to the group Kantilena with the song Baħħar, second place was given to the track Tal-Komma Twila performed by Grecia Bezzina and the winning entry Malta Tiegħi performed by Kultural. The most successful artist in this competition in recent years has surely been Malta Eurovision Song Contest 2012 finalist; Corazon who has won the competition three of the last five years. Once more the prizes will involve competing in other showcases abroad. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com and għanjafest.com for all of the latest news with regards to the 2013 edition of the Għanja tal-Poplu.

Over the years, there have been a number of competitions on behalf of the arts especially when it comes to promoting the national language of the country being Maltese. Unfortunately, lately there has been a drought in such events with only the Għanja tal-Poplu and the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza keeping to their name of promoting the language. The former was actually organized last Saturday at the Sir Temi Żammit Hall within the University of Malta. This was the thirty sixth edition of the esteemed competition and it was hosted by none other than multiple winner Corazon and veteran presenter Alfred Zammit. The event will be shown on ONE Television next Saturday but in the meantime, we can let you know the results of the evening nevertheless.

The evening was a whirlwind of excitement actually featuring some of the best singer/songwriters in the Maltese Islands. The festival went forward without any glitches from start to finish including the opening act featuring the last winner, Corazon with the song Mill-Għajnejn ta' Tifla and the intervals which included none other than British singer/songwriter Sarah Class who has worked with the likes of Soprano; Hayley Westenra, Eurovision Song Contest Winner; Eimear Quinn and also wrote tracks for the soundtrack of the Harry Potter movies.

The excitement during the guest performances was surely gearing up and the judges which included the likes of literary scholars such as Manwel & Immanuel Mifsud as well as musicians such as Paul Abela and Joe Tanti made some interesting decisions. One could easily note that the tracks were the best that have been presented in recent years as the awards were divided equally amongst a number of musicians.

Congratulations to all of the winners of the awards on Saturday evening but also to the other competitors. The Editorial team would like to send their special wishes to two of the acts during the evening, Clive Muscat who performed the song Umani written by Paul Attard and Anthony Camilleri as well as Grecia Bezzina whose song Tal-Komma Twila was written by Dario Bezzina and Emil Calleja Bayliss. Both have connections to escflashmalta.com and thus we are proud of their performances and slightly prouder of the latter for finishing in the first runner-up position. It is an achievement which will surely be highlighted by more in the years to come.
