Show notes for the 378th Mużika Mod Ieħor podcast featuring music by performers from or in Malta:
Jogelle – The Struggle
Maltese-born Johanna Gauci Loporto is a US-based singer recording as Jogelle (a name derived from her initials, or so it seems) who was brought to my attention by Mario Axiaq. She has recorded a number of songs and seems to be exploring the best style for her voice. I like what she has produced so far so much that I’ve chosen to open this week’s podcast with this song.
Melchior Sultana – Peacefully
This Maltese musician continues to be one of the most underrated artists of his generation. Perhaps he prefers it that way. The only time I met him in person, about 7 years ago, he was a very quiet and unassuming individual. That certainly comes across in his music and I probably like it more for this reason.
Fabricka – Break It Down (Nostalgia)
This is one of those mystery acts from Malta that appear online from time to time. I came across this one on Soundcloud as was instantly mesmerized by what I heard. There’s a Facebook page for Fabricka too, but that doesn’t shed any further light on this project or whoever is behind it. I’d really like to know more!
