SERATA GĦANA U LEJLA RAP

SERATA GĦANA U LEJLA RAP

From medieval music to traditional Maltese Għana and contemporary rap, different artists come together in one night that showcases a diversity of styles that evolved from traditional music and singing. Locally known as il-benniena tal-għannejja (the cradle of the singers), the charming village of Żejtun makes for an intimate setting in which different communities meet to blend, compare and contrast rich performances, including: sets by the Medieval-inspired band Bibita, the hip hop duo Marmalja and electronic artist Yews; traditional Għana and Makjetta sessions; an open mic segment with the literary group Spazjarti; and a beat-box and spirtu pront session inspired by words from the audience. A collage and creative writing workshop will also be held in preparation for the main event.
