KKI 2012: Having a Look at 'Missjoni Impossibli'

Rate this item
(2 votes)

One of the most endearing challenges that any music industry would have to conquer through various elements of time would surely be the absence of a male vocalist noting that in this day and age, there has been a lot of positive acclaim towards female performers who steadily rise in terms of numbers with the opposite sex somewhat declining at a rapid rate unfortunately. Nevertheless, it has to be noted that despite being in a minority, the last two representatives at the Eurovision Song Contest just happened to be male counterparts in the form of Kurt Calleja and Glen Vella respectively. Throughout the years, the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza has also represented this divide noting that there has never been an edition in which only a particular gender was present and that makes it somewhat more intriguing. When looking at the list of former winners of the competition, it is to be noted that from twenty editions in total, there has been at least ten males, either as soloists, part of a group or duet respectively and therefore, the numbers add up in quite the responsible manner as well. The next entry which will be further analysed and thus summing up the discussion above is that entitled Missjoni Impossibli composed by Philip Vella and penned by Rita Pace with the vocals provided by Ishmael Grech. Media.Link Communications have always sought to promote upcoming artists and therefore, this time, along with the committee of the competition, they have decided to work extremely hard to give as much exposure as possible and thus recording preview videos for each respective entries and uploaded through viral website, YouTube with additional analytic help offered by escflashmalta.com so that people would get to know the individuals behind the song a little bit better at the same time.

Listening to the track the very first time, one would get the idea that this could be somewhat about an intriguing adventure between two members of the opposite gender and indeed it is, in relation to a romantic encounter which they seem to be entwined within. Ishmael Grech is singing to his female companion that it will be somewhat impossible for their love to continue to blossom and this is because certain situations might strain their general dependency and ultimately, their love would be the first to suffer. The title of the track could be translated very swiftly into Mission Impossible and the relation between the adventurous tune and the title is definitely a particular idea of a James Bond movie. Despite the ever growing concern that things are not going to end up well between the two, the male performer gives into the idea that he will never give up and will continue trying because they promised that they would be there for each other till the end of time. Ishmael Grech is one of the youngest performers in the local music industry but surely, he could develop into one of the most notable names because he brings about a certain edge to each performance that is not seen too much. At twenty years of age, he brings about already a previous participation in the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza having taken part back in 2010 with the track Abjad u Iswed composed by Philip Vella and penned by Rita Pace. 

Having a look at the individuals behind the track, it is to be noted that the composer brings about one of the most successful records ever in relation to the Eurovision Song Contest with Philip Vella composing the music for five entries in the renowned event, those coming in 2000, 2002, 2004, 2007 and 2008 respectively apart from coming extremely close earlier this year with the track Pure performed by Claudia Faniello. On all of the respective occasions, the lyrics were penned by Gerard James Borg but then again, when writing for this competition, his usual collaboration with singer/songwriter Rita Pace comes into force once more. It is to be noted that the track 1964 which Philip composed with the lyrics of Mark Amaira was the one which broke the two straight wins of Mark Spiteri Lucas and Joe Chircop pushing him in second place in the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza 2009. In the meantime, the lyricist of this track is of course, Rita Pace who last year was also part of the competition as a vocalist and a songwriter ultimately coming out with a trophy for penning the lyrics to the track Eternità for Janice Mangion to the music of Mark Scicluna. She is a veteran in the industry and will continue to impress the listeners in the years to come as she continues to write music and lyrics. You can listen to his 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.
