(3 votes)

Every decade brings about a host of new artists within any music scene and it has to be noted that in Malta, there has been a growing concern with regards to the upcoming talent but nevertheless, one of the best examples in terms of showcases that talent is seriously moving onto an even more positive role than before is the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza which in its respective twenty first edition represents the next generation of artists, the ones that will ultimately be making up the numbers in competitions and events in the next couple of years. It has to be noted that some of them have already worked their way into other national events on a junior level and that is what makes them distinct but then again, there are others who are literally new yet bring about a stunning vocal ability that has to be praised throughout. The next entry which will be further analysed and competing in the aforementioned competition is the track Jekk Nużaw Moħħna composed by Mark Spiteri Lucas and penned by Joe Chircop with a vocal performance by Deborah C. It has to be noted that this year, Media.Link Communications have worked extremely hard to make sure that all of the respective entries receive as much exposure as possible and that is why, promotional videos of each track was shot and uploaded through viral website, YouTube whilst analysis of the tracks is then also being given through escflashmalta.com so that people would look at the people involved within the song in itself. 

The Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza is a competition which is organized in commemoration of the day that the country achieved Independence from the British Government and therefore, it is somewhat expected that some of the entries will do their best to speak about the values that the nation has transpired throughout the years whilst also speaking about the residents who have shown true courage in order to preserve their identity even through hard times. In fact, the title in itself would translate into a message towards the people If We Use Our Mind. Apart from looking things from a historic perspective, it is also to be noted that the track deals with more current issues such as the problems with the economy all around the world which Malta has not had to face due to the fact that the leadership was well fixed to deal with the respective issue. The positive message of the song will surely transpire well in the long run and that is why, the juries so the track fit to celebrate the festivities well in the long run. Deborah C calls on the people of the Maltese Islands to make sure to make the right choice when need be, so that the country would continue heading into the right direction. Having a look at the man behind the lyrics, it is to be seen that the individual is Joe Chircop, a man who does not need a lot of introduction in this competition having successfully competed with winning entries in two occasions; Dan Hu L-Mument in 2007 sung by Kaya and Ivan Borg and Flimkien Nistgħu Nirnexxu in 2008 interpreted by Is-Sitta. He was also the winning of the teenage category last year on the twentieth anniversary of the competition with the track Ejjew Nieqfu sung by Angelica Portelli.

In the past five editions of the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza, singer/songwriter Mark Spiteri Lucas has managed to finish at the top of the table twice, those coming in 2007 and 2008 as mentioned above whilst also finishing as the first runner-up in 2009 with the track Lilek Biss performed by Kaya. Nevertheless, the man has firmly entered the record books of the competition noting that apart from those two victories, he was also the individual to pen the track for the first major success of Ira Losco, a winning song entitled Fejn Staħbejtli with lyrics by Paul Ellul. Apart from the success he has achieved on the stage of The Granaries, he was also a second runner-up at the Malta Eurovision Song Contest back in 2007 with the track She Gives Me Wings by Klinsmann Coleiro with lyrics by Rita Pace. The vocals on this track are being provided by Deborah C, a woman who is quickly garnering a name for herself in the local music industry noting that this is her third participation in the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza following Pandora in 2008 and Fjamma in 2011, both winning the tele-voting portion of the competition. She also made it through to the finals of this years' Malta Eurovision Song Contest with the track You Make Me Go (Uh Uh) alongside the vocals of Leila J. You can listen to her entry in this years' competition just below whilst also hoping you will keep on reading escflashmalta.com for all of the latest news about the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza.
