Christmas songs in Maltese are not unheard of but you do not get to hear them so often – the more popular songs in English get priority and in recent years it seemed quite an unusual to hear a Christmas song in Maltese around this time of the year. One of the first song in Maltese to make a hit in recent years was the release of Ħelu Bambin sung by the popular Chiara alongside Ludwig Galea. The popular gospel choir Animae have decided to get into the Christmas spirit too with their take on one of the most popular Maltese Christmas songs Ninni La Tibkix Iżjed. The original song was written by Fr. Andrew Schembri back in 1846 but Animae alongside young talented singer Isaac Mercieca gave a song a facelift with a modern touch.

It is always great to hear a popular song with a different vocal arrangement to the one we are used to and Pamela Bezzina did a great job on that, whilst alongside Christian Borg, she also took care of the musical arranagement. The direction of the choir was left in the capable hands of Pamela Bezzina too, who seems to be the mastermind behind this track. Animae Gospel Choir is known for their perfect harmonies and takes on different popular songs. The journey started back in 2008 with ten well-known performers, nowadays the group is made up of 21 well established performers and their aim is to provide those listening to some true soul music. Have a listen to the track and leave your comments below on what you think about this number. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for all of the latest news.
