Media.Link Communications takes pride in promoting the local music scene henceforth why they organise the annual Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza, a competition in which vocalists have to perform original songs in their respective mother tongue. Ira Losco and Claudia Faniello, two of the most notable stars at the moment both started from this competition before going onto release more material and many will hope to follow in their footsteps. Media.Link Communications in accordance with the committee of the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza worked to include a wildcard into the competition, one which would be granted through a singing competition entitled Passport 2 Indifest held on Sas-Sitta produced by Spiteri Lucas Entertainment.

The recipient of the wildcard last year was Simone Gauci with the track Id F'Id composed by Renato Briffa and penned by Keith Zammit, finishing in a respectable mid-table position. It is worth pointing out that the first finalist selected last week was none other than Karen DeBattista, a former finalist in the Malta Summer Hit Song Contest as well as a second round qualifier in this years' Malta Eurovision Song Contest. Today the semi-final featured Marie Claire Attard Bason, a Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza finalist in 2009 with Ma Rridx Ninbidel and Letizia Seychell who was a contestant in the show Don't Stop Me Now hosted by Eileen Montestin.

The first performance of the duel was done by Letizia Seychell who gave her very own rendition of Kieku Taf? originally sung by Corazon during L-Għanja tal-Poplu competition in 2006. Marie Claire Attard Bason followed with her rendition of the song Ħallini Inħobbok originally performed by Georgina during the Festival Kanzunetta Maltija 1999. The jury as last week was composed of Annabelle Debono, former winner of the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza as well as Janvil, runner-up of the 2005 Malta Eurovision Song Contest and Neville Refalo, multiple finalist in the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza. In the end, it was Marie Claire Attard Bason who won the hearts of the judges and will thus face Karen DeBattista. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com as the result is unveiled next week.
