KKI 2012: Having a Look at 'Kemm Xtaqt'

Rate this item
(1 Vote)

In the hands of the right people, talent can be considered as one of the most notable assets that an individual can have but then again, the method of exposure has to be worked out in the possible way with artists looking as their most viable options in the music industry which when it comes to Malta is somewhat extremely limited. One of the venues where such talent can be exposed is surely the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza and in fact, there have been a number of such individuals who have only sent in tracks to this competition or rather have created a bond due to the fact that it represents the best of the Maltese language and therefore, one of the prime elements of the national identity. Media.Link Communications have set out to promote such an aim and therefore, they are succeeding when such artists come forward and this is surely the case with the next artist, Laura Bruno whose entry Kemm Xtaqt written by Frederick Camilleri is also being analyzed. This particular artist has been around for quite some time but has been selective of where she would like to expose her vocal prowess at yet her return to the scene is surely encouraging. 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.

First and foremost, the title in itself could be easily translated into I Wish but that could refer to practically anything especially without a particular context and therefore, we have looked into the song at greater detail and length so to speak. This has to be a track which features a heavy social theme about the individual once more which seems to be a central focus for most of the story-lines in this years' entries of the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza. From what I have managed to gather, it seems that a particular person, someone who could either be identifiable through a friend or family or even though a criminal role in society has not had everything go his way and therefore, Laura performs as if that love would erase the wrongdoing done with the possibility of heading into a jovial era, one which is very much different to what has been encountered until this point in time. What is so different about this song than most of the other tracks in this years' competition is the fact that Laura shows a lot of facial expressions throughout the whole performance and that shows that she would really be putting a lot of emotion, something which seemed to have been witnessed by the judges of the second phase of the jury who heard her perform the track live and therefore, giving it the proper showcase it deserved. As already mentioned before, the track is performed by Laura Bruno and the songwriter is Frederick Camilleri and technically, both of them do not need too much of an introduction with their experience in the industry.

The performer of the track has already participated in the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza on another occasion, that being in 2005 with the track Il-Bogħod Mid-Dlam but then again, it is also to be noted that Laura has tried to enter the Malta Eurovision Song Contest on multiple occasions, eventually making it through to the semi-final stage in 2009 with the track Something About You. It has been noted on several occasions that she has a very particular vocal timbre which has to be specifically adhered to even in terms of the songs that she performs. For many years, the main venue for exposing her talent has been none other than the Christmas Pantomime along with Pawlu Testa which has featured a host of celebrities throughout the years including former Eurovision Song Contest representatives; Julie and Ludwig as well as national final stars such as Leontine, Ina Robinich and Minik. In the meantime, the composer is somewhat a veteran in the world of local music having worked with the likes of Alison Ellul and Fabrizio Faniello in the past amongst others with a host of tracks in the Għanja tal-Poplu competition as far back as 1996 actually. One important thing to note is that Frederick Camilleri is a leading writer, not only of songs but even of other things including plays such as Spiru Cefai and leading television dramas such as Gawdenz Bilocca. 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.
