Sammy Bartolo and Mary Rose Mallia are iconic stars within the local music industry and have released songs in Maltese which will be performed for several generations to come. Following an astonishing rendition of Xemx by Gianluca and Joseph Calleja during the latters' annual concert, it was time for the band headlining this years' edition of Akustika to give it a go, and indeed, they succeeded into making it intimate and enjoyable for everyone. A first performance with the theme Leħen Malta took place last Friday night at the Cottonera Resource Centre in Vittoriosa but fear not because a second performance will be taking place at Quadrangle within the University of Malta in order to represent the core values thought at the same institution through the value of song.

For those slightly green about Akustika, it is a musical project coordinated by ŻĦN Symphonik with the aim of combining the talents of nine (9) musicians from different musical backgrounds. Amongst the current crop of artists being used for this event, there are none other than former Malta Eurovision Song Contest participants; Janice DeBattista (2013) and Jean Claude Vancell (2008) as well as Sean Borg from The New Victorians and Luke Vella Clark from The Crowns. We shot a number of videos during the first performance held on Friday but have opted on uploading the one for Marija l-Maltija, the first entry to represent Malta at the Eurovision Song Contest back in 1971. For more details, visit the Event Page on Facebook and stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for all of the latest news.
