KKI 2012: Having a Look at 'Se Nibda Jien'

Rate this item
(3 votes)

The subject of music represents universality and what better way to celebrate such an important talent such as vocal prowess through a bond which could only be created by siblings. The local music industry has had a fair share of individuals who have joined forces together through the means of music noting substantially people such as Natasha and Charlene as well as the Micallef trio featuring Richard, Wayne and Michelle respectively. It has to be noted that both have been part of the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza in the past, each leaving their mark on the evolvement of the competition so to speak. Media.Link Communications have greatly acknowledged all type of artists throughout the years with the appointed jury notably voting for the best entries and ultimately performers whether they are competing as soloists, duets or even groups. Following the trio that was presented last week, attention is turned to a duet between a brother and a sister, Dario and Grecia Bezzina who will be performing the track Se Nibda Jien composed by Dario Bezzina himself with lyrics written by none other than singer/songwriter Rita Pace. All of the artists and their respective entries are receiving a lot of exposure including on NET Television and through viral website, YouTube following an official video recorded for all respective entries. In the meantime, escflashmalta.com is also giving their readers an insight into the tracks of this years' competition.

The subject of romance has somewhat become predominant in the local music industry especially when dealing with the likes of Maltese lyrics but then again, this is quite a different type of subject, going against the norm and coming up with something which is outside of the typical box. The title of the track can be translated into I Am Going to Start and it deals with a particular individual, which one can identify with personally who is not giving up for what he believes in and will continue to go against the will of the people in charge for the sake of being right and in favour of the positive and correct way of doing things. The track is performed between two and therefore, it is somewhat quite notable that it is seen more as a conversation. Nevertheless, the topic does not change and they continue debating that the individual should always hold his head up high as long as he is in the clear. The composer of the song as mentioned above is none other than the male singer and it is to be recorded that Dario has not really been writing for a very long time with his first track coming back in the Għanja tal-Poplu of 2009 having written the song Kamra Bla Ħitan before penning the music to the song Tal-Komma Twila for his sister in this years' Għanja tal-Poplu with lyrics by escflashmalta.com editor Emil Calleja Bayliss. Rita Pace is the woman behind the lyrics of this years' entry and she has already been mentioned on countless occasions in this years' analysis having penned quite a hefty amount of tracks in the competition.
Her success in the local music industry has come mostly as a songwriter despite being a veteran singer. The most notable successes which she has are surely a third place finish in the Malta Song for Europe competition in 2007 having written the lyrics for the song She Gives Me Wings performed by Klinsmann and composed by Mark Spiteri Lucas whilst also coming in third place just last year having written the lyrics for the song Eternita' performed by Janice Mangion and composed by Mark Scicluna. The performers of this song need not be introduced having already made their way in the local music scene with Dario Bezzina first stepping out of the 2004 edition of the Junior Eurosong with the song Eviva L-Mużika missing out by just one point prior to making it through to the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza as well as the Malta Eurosong. Grecia Bezzina on the other hand has had less experience but is quickly rising to the occasion having been in the finals of the Malta Hit Song Contest, the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza, the semi-finals of the Malta Eurosong as well as finishing as the runner-up in this years' edition of the Għanja tal-Poplu. She was a backing vocalist to Francesca Borg in this years' Malta Eurovision Song Contest as well. You can see the official video of the song just below and stay tuned to escflashmalta.com as well as the page of the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza for more updates in the coming days.
