KKI 2013: Final Line-Up Revealed This Evening

Media.Link Communications in collaboration with escflashmalta.com is proud to present the ninth week of the programme Indifest hosted by Mark Azzopardi and Christine Haber through NET Television on Thursday evening as from 20:30 CET onwards. In support of this years' edition of the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza, the weekly programme seeks to promote the artists competing in one of three competitions which promote the local language. Whether newcomers or somewhat established, their place is still amongst the general elite. The public has the opportunity to select which three entries they would like to qualify from the 'teenage category' portion of the competition as well selecting their top favourite within the 'established category' which is offered as a separate award in order to make sure that talent is well appreciated.

All of the eight (8) entries competing in this years' teenage category will be competing for the votes of the judges this evening as a set of professional experts will be on hand within the studio to assess the performances by the respective participants. It is important to denote that all of the artists have already performed within Indifest this season in order to present their entries to the public who have also been voting. 40% of the final result which is set to be revealed this evening will have been decided by them with the other 60% decided by the expert panel. Therefore, people should continue to vote for their most favourite entries throughout the course of the programme in order to aid their preferred entry. Ultimately, three will garner the opportunity to perform 'live' during the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza which is taking place on the 19th September on The Granaries in Floriana.

In the meantime, apart from the artists competing in this years' Teenage Category, there are a number of special guests who will be appearing on this evenings' programme of Indifest, including none other than former Eurovision Song Contest, Glen Vella who almost took Malta to the final with his entry One Life composed by Paul Giordimaina to the lyrics of Fleur Balzan. He will also be joined by Brooke Borg, winner of the Best Solo Artist at the Malta Music Awards earlier this year and Sarah Bonnici who was the winner of the Teenage Category last year. She had performed the track Bil-Bnadar F'Idejna composed by Miriam Christine to the lyrics of Joe Chircop. A resident dance performance by Annalise Dance Studio is also expected throughout the course of the programme. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for all of the latest news.

Indifest, hosted by Mark Azzopardi and Christine Haber on NET Television returns for a fifth consecutive episode this evening following the initial success of the past four weeks in which a total of twelve entries from this years' edition of the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza have been presented. Viewers have the opportunity to select their favourite tracks from both the Established and Teenage Category whilst watching the programme or during the rest of the day as clips could be seen either on television or online. Media.Link Communications and escflashmalta.com are working together in several areas in order to promote the competition in the best possible way noting that it remains as the leading showcase for the Maltese language through the medium of song. The programme starts at 20:30 CET.

In this years' edition of the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza, the Established Category has been denoted to include within it a mixture of young and upcoming talent which is representative of the future local music scene. In this evenings' programme, first up is none other than Laura Bruno with the song Fraħt Għax Sibtek written by Frederick Camilleri. The female artist is participating in the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza for the third time and is still hoping to make her Malta Eurovision Song Contest debut. On the other hand, joining her this evening from the same category is Domenique with the track B'Ħarsitna 'l Fuq composed by Mark Spiteri Lucas and lyrics by Paul Ellul. Domenique reached the final stages of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest earlier this year having also reached the semi-final back in 2011.

Michelle Portelli is one of the solo performers competing in the teenage talent portion of the competition and will therefore have to perform her entry Għix live for the very first time. The track composed by Minik to the lyrics of Rita Pace is written in an uptempo fashion. As has been the case in the first couple of episodes, there will be two special guests, both of which are vocalists; the first one being The Greenfields, a folkloristic group who represent the most positive elements of the music industry of the days gone by and the second one being Christabelle, three time winner of the Solo Artist accolade at the Bay Music Awards. Annalise Ellul who was a guest during the first programme will oversee her dancers as they occupy the role of resident guests. Remember Indifest returns to NET Television, this evening at 20:30 CET. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for the latest news.
