Malta: Chiara Striving to Succeed in New Genre

In a recent interview with Frederick Zammit during the programme Euromix on Radju Malta, three time Eurovision Song Contest representative Chiara spoke abour her past and present endeavours in the music industry as well as her family including her father and daughter. Throughout the years, Chiara has maintained her status as one of the most elite vocalists in the country, always trying to be contemporary in her musical choices. As a resident singer on the popular game show, Ħadd Għalik, she performed cover songs which suited her vocals but are not in the genre that many had grown accustomed to. It was this particular style of music which helped her land her record deal with Hands-Up Music.

Chiara, represented by Hands-Up Music, an Icelandic record label has just collaborated with Hera Bjork, the 2010 vocalist on behalf of Iceland at the Eurovision Song Contest on a cover version of the track 9 to 5 originally by Dolly Party. They performed it together for the very first time during an event where they were both invited within Germany. It will not be the only time though considering that they will be heading to Paris, France in December for another show. During the course of the interview, Frederick Zammit also asked Chiara about her upcoming plans as a solo artist to which she revealed that she is currently working on her new single, which will be featuring water and female sirens, more commonly known as Mermaids. She is co-writing this track alongside her manager.

Many have enquired about the possibility of Chiara returning to the world of the Eurovision Song Contest when the ban which prohibits her to submit is ultimately lifted. In a diplomatic manner, she stated that 'never say never' but added that unless she listens to something which ultimately blows her away, she will not be returning to the event. Chiara's last participation at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2009 was quite disappointing as her entry What If We composed by Marc Paelinck to the lyrics of Gregory Bilsen could only muster up thirty one (31) points to finish in nineteenth place. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com in the coming days, weeks and months for all of the latest news about the local music industry and the Eurovision Song Contest.

In 2009, Chiara represented Malta at the Eurovision Song Contest for the third time with the track What If We composed by Marc Paelinck to the lyrics of Gregory Bilsen achieving a disappointing result. Nevertheless, it is worth noting that it was the beginning of something new for the female vocalist as she signed a record deal with an indepedent label based in Iceland with which she has already released three singles including; Forget Forgetting Me, Żarbun and 9 to 5, the latter being a duet with Hera Bjork. This evening, she will be giving an exclusive interview to Frederick Zammit on the radio programme; Euromix which airs on Radju Malta between 20:30 and 22:00 CET.

Since returning from her third participation within the international competition, the female artist has gone for a completely different genre, so much so that she even altered her image. The vocals are nevertheless very much present despite the dance music as the tracks have somewhat all been reworked in a Gloria Gaynor, I Will Survive manner. During the interview, Frederick Zammit, a notable personality synomous with the world of the Eurovision Song Contest in Malta will be discussing the terms of the record deal, the controversy creaed by her last solo single, motherhood and mermaids! Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for all of the latest news about artists from within the local music scene!
