The very first programme of any season is always going to be somewhat an intriguing one and this is due to the fact that there would be expectations and for yet another year, Media.Link Communications have set up the perfect preparation for the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza which is heading into the twenty first year following last years' epic anniversary. There have been a number of changes which have been implemented this time round thanks for a host of ideas brought forward by the committee of the competition led by Chairman Mark Azzopardi. One of the most interesting is surely the promotion of the songs just before they are performed on the programme. The preview videos were recorded at NET Television by a professional crew and then uploaded through viral website, YouTube but nevertheless, we encourage you to get to know the people in the competition better through Indifest and escflashmalta.com so that one could associate a track to a particular performer before ultimately voting.

The 2012 edition of the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza features a host of talent noting that there are a number of newcomers as well as individuals who have been rightfully earning their place in the local music industry. Apart from meeting three (3) people each week, two (2) from the Established Category and one from the Teenage Category, there is also a weekly special guest, one who has somewhat become popular through a number of events but also brings about experience from this particular competition, one of the two that still promote the Maltese language through the medium of song. In fact, last week, the programme had the proud pleasure of presenting Mike Spiteri who was the winner of last years' edition of the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza ewith the track B'Rieda tal-Azzar written by Ray Agius but then again, many people would remember a number of his contributions to the competition including ones such as Grazzi Mill-Qalb and Rebbiegħa Ġdida amongst others.


Once more, returning as a producer for this episode and for all of the series is none other than Mark Azzopardi who is also the chairman of the committee behind the competition. It is somewhat imperative to have such a distinctive persona behind both the programme and the competition so that there is a merge in terms of decisions. There has been a lot of work done behind the scenes to make sure that all of the finalists receive the same amount of promotion noting the videos, the photo shoot and also the appearances on the actual programme which is being hosted by Christine Haber and Ronald Briffa, two names who clearly need no introduction to the viewers of NET Television and also other broadcasters. In this weeks' episode, the main guests from the Established Category will be none other than Christian Azzopardi with the song Kburin Bik composed by Philip Vella and penned by Joe Chircop and also Francesca Scerri with the track Mill-Bidu Nett composed by Elton Zarb and penned by Rita Pace. The former did not actually make it through with the vocals of the man noting that finalist, Domenique Azzopardi decided to give him her song.

From the teenage Cateogry, there will also be a live performance by Maria Debono who will be performing the song Aħna ż-Żagħżagħ composed by Kaya and penned by Joe Chircop. The special guest for this weeks' edition of Indifest will be none other than former Eurovision Song Contest representative Glen Vella who had failed to qualify to the finals of the event by just one point having performed the track One Life to his best possible abroad. Nevertheless, he had been in the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza on many occasions with his last performance coming back in 2009 with the track Kuntent composed by Sean Vella and penned by Philip Vella which finished in tenth place during the evening. Therefore, with such a jam packed programme this evening, we encourage you to turn on NET Television at 20:30 and watch yet another Indifest hosted by Ronald Briffa and Christine Haber with all of the exciting questions posed by James Cassar.

The staging of every competition requires a team of dedicated personnel and last years' edition of the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza won by Mike Spiteri and his song B'Rieda Tal-Azzar was one of the most innovative thus far noting that seating was introduced for the very first time. This year, things are going to continue improving on what was built during the twentieth edition noting that Media.Link Communications has always been fully fledged to support local talent of all kinds. This years' competition features a mixture of newcomers and established personnel but what is clear is that those who were competing in the junior ranks not too long ago have now found their way amongst the elite it seems. Indifest has been picked up for yet another season in aid of the competition and this year, it will be bigger and better than it has been in the past so stay tuned.

For the second time in her young career, Christine Haber will be the leading female host of the programme and thus the competition and she will be joined by none other than someone who brings in his fair share of experience in hosting popular shows. I am talking about Ronald Briffa, who recently got the opportunity to host the Malta Eurovision Song Contest and also be our main commentator alongside last years' female host of the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza, Elaine Saliba. In the meantime, the programme whilst meeting up with the various contestants in this years' edition, notably two (2) competing in the Established category and another one (1) competing in the Teenage Category, there will be the typical questions with a hint of satire asked by newcomer host James Cassar, who experience in the world of entertainment is clearly gaining pace noting his work in creating events around the country. He was also one of the judges during the initial phases of the 2011 edition of the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza.

The merge between the committee of the competition and indeed is very much apparent this year noting that the Chairman, Mark Azzopardi also picture above will be producing the programme himself in order to keep everything in line with what the committee would like to see put forth. Promotion is vital to each and every contestant and Mark along with the team on the show and the team behind the competition will look to it that everything happens as it should. During the first programme, the guests will be none other than Stephanie Zammit with the track Abjad u Iswed composed by Philip Vella and penned by Gerard James Borg, Rachel Verzin who will be taking part with Dell L-Istilel composed by Dominic Cini and penned by Stephen Baldacchino and Derrick Schembri with the song Niftakar Fik composed by the same Dominic Cini and penned by Stephen Baldacchino. The latter will be performing live whilst the former two will perform in playback.


There will be a number of twists and turns during this years' edition of the programme Indifest so one has to make sure to keep his eyes peeled open for everything that Christine and Ronald utter out of their mouths noting that all of the songs might be coming closer to you, much more quicker than you think, hence, be quick to react as an announcement is made. Indifest along with the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza is being fully supported for the third year running by escflashmalta.com as we aim to promote everything possible when it comes to the local music scene. One last note that we would like to mention is that there will be a notable amount of special guests during the series and the first one will be none other than 1995 Eurovision Song Contest representative and last years' winning entrant Mike Spiteri who was also a judge during the initial judging phase of this years' competition. Therefore, on Tuesday at 20:30 CET, tune in to NET Television for the first programme!
