In the past couple of years, charity has been one of the most pivotal aspects in the creation of a state, which while somewhat limited in resources, is not lacking in generosity, with record funds being targeted and achieved every year. "L-Istrina" is the most important charity event, with funds given to various organisations. As a means of supporting this noble gesture, a theme song is recorded, and what is intriguing is that several familiar faces make an appearance, all in the face of charity. This year, the song is entitled "Int Min Int", and is composed by Dominic Cini to the lyrics of Giovann Attard with production entrusted to Elton Zarb of Freetime Productions. "Int Min Int" features the vocals of; Amber (ESC 2015), Dominic (MESC 2015), Renato (ESC 1975) , Ina Robinich, Federica Falzon (JESC 2014), Gaia Cauchi (JESC 2013), La Barokka, Mary Spiteri (ESC 1992), Mary Rose…

It is a fair comment to pass that bands whose sound does not evolve, are somewhat archaic and stuck. Red Electrick have definitely made this their mantra, having developed a sound which, whilst instantly recognisable, is also very current. Their latest release "Young Again", echoes a similar aura to "Paul", their hit single from 2013, but this is bigger, and better, not too mention, featuring the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra. Matthew James Borg, Raphael Tonna, Ivan Borg, Jonas Delicata and Peter Borg are without a doubt extremely talent musicians, with a true penchanct for live performances. Yet, the standout element surely has to be the distinctive vocal performance of Matthew James Borg, who has proven on countless occasions, that when the music is stripped back, his voice is vulnerable to the surrounding air, creating gooseflesh, leaving a mark, a deep meaning and an eventual yearning for more. Winners of the Best…

Since being uploaded onto YouTube, it has amassed well over a 1,000 views, as well as a string of positive comments.

Following the success of the second edition of the concert ‘The Prayer’, organized by Blue Circle Events and Aldo Busuttil, a new Christmas concert with a difference will be organized this year. When the lyrical singer was preparing material for his new album ‘Con Amore’ he got the idea of including other songs synonymous with the Christmas festivities. As the name of the album and the fourteen tracks imply, Christmas is the time to celebrate and spread the love The Lord Himself has shown us when he come amongst us as a human being. The concert ‘Con Amore on Christmas’ will not only include traditional Christmas songs but also various songs starting from the Operatic and Neapolitan repertoire and modern day songs.
