Show notes for the 398th Mużika Mod Ieħor podcast featuring music by performers from or in Malta:
Brodu – Iċ-Ċimiterju
Mistura – Issa Tard Wisq
It’s been a long time coming: Mistura have finally released their debut album featuring their unique brand of Maltese-language songs. It’s called U d-Dinja Tkompli Ddur, which roughly translates to And the World Keeps On Turning. I think that’s a rather charming and fitting name for this album. The 16-track CD was officially launched a couple of week’s ago during Michael Bugeja’s radio show Rockna. I’ve featured a number of these songs on my podcast Here’s an album sampler:
nosnow/noalps – Somethin’ Like That
Vinny Vella Jr. – Everything Will Pass
A few days ago I attended the launch party for the CD album Another Way by Vinny Vella Jr. It was quite a gathering of musicians, and most of the tracks on the album were played live, for the most part by the same musicians featured on the recordings. The album is a blend of some of Vinny’s favourite songs (including two by his long-time idol Stevie Wonder) and several original compositions. I’ve picked one of the originals, which particularly struck me for a number of reasons. This song features singer Andreana DeBattista, who is one of guest four singers on the album, along with Nadine Axisa, Glen Vella and Francesca Galea.
