KKI 2012: Having a Look at 'Rebbiħin'

The Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza has always been one of the competitions to help not only promote upcoming artists but also the Maltese language hence forth why it is being organized for the twenty-first year so to speak with former winners including the likes of Mike Spiteri, Annabelle Debono, Miriam Christine, Claudette Pace, Nadine Axisa, Amber, Roger Tirazona, Lawrence Gray and Ira Losco amongst others. Strategy is key to success in any industry and being relatively young is a great aid to what the future would generally hold and this is surely the case as we unravel the third entry of the evening which is brought forward by Francesca Sciberras who will performing the track Rebbiħin composed by Miriam Christine and penned by Celestina Sciberras. Working your way to the top is one of the elements which makes talent more exciting because the public would be present to watch the performer grow from strength to strength. Media.Link Communications in collaboration with the Committee of the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza have worked really hard to make sure that each act gets ample promotion hence the record of the official preview videos as published through YouTube and also an analysis of each track on escflashmalta.com respectively. 

Translating the title into English would be Winners and the track deals with the elements that the Maltese had to encounter in the past, striving to achieve what indeed was theirs all along and coming out on top as the winners. Nevertheless, one has to take into account that the lyrics seem to refer to a particular being who worked hard to achieve independence and sought to make sure that the future for the country would be enlightened with positivist ideas. Starting off with the lyricist of the track, Celestina Sciberras is a relatively unknown individual in the music industry noting that she is the mother of the performer and has decided to pen her first set of words in a song which is very much as patriotic as most Maltese people tend to be about their culture and history. The first time is always a milestone so to speak and being in the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza is a big step for any first timer. Nevertheless, she does come into the game with one of the leading singer/songwriters in the country, Miriam Christine.

The Gozitan performer who represented Malta in the 1996 Eurovision Song Contest with the track In A Woman's Heart reaching tenth place at the end of the evening has continued performing but writing songs for other people as well making it to the finals of the Malta Eurovision Song Contest with a self penned entry entitled Mama in 2009 for example. Being a former winner of the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza, she is surely giving Francesca a lot of advice with regards to her presentation tomorrow evening whilst hoping that she will be taking in the whole experience as another one in a long chain for the young up and coming singer. Francesca Sciberras has already represented Malta on an international stage being one half of the duo that went to the Junior Eurovision Song Contest back in 2009 with the track Double Trouble finishing in eighth place. Nevertheless, this is her first senior major competition and will be doing her best to make sure that this path of success will continue. You can watch the performance of the track in the official video just below and we urge you to stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for all of the latest news as soon as it becomes available.
