Lost Voices - Ilħna Mitlufa
The Lost Voices / L-Ilħna Mitlufa L-Ilħna Mitlufa is a trio of musicians, who have recently got together inspired by traditional and popular chant songs featured in the Lost Voices collection. Excited by the idea of reinterpretation of traditional repertoire, the trio have selected a series of songs from the collection and are proposing new arrangements on għana and other popular styles found in the collection.
Accompanied by a series of short stories and anecdotes, the performance features a selection of varied music styles featured in the 1930s recordings. From more lyrical serenades and waltzes, to upbeat foxtrots, humorous makkjetti and għana tal-fatt, the ensemble presents a unique repertoire blending the old with new perspectives and flavours. Through performance L-Ilħna Mitlufa musicians investigate ways of performing traditional għana, instigating the need to look deeper into our vocal tradition, whilst proposing new musical arrangements on tradition, new poetic contexts and new ways of being together in song.
THE MUSICIANS: Mariele Zammit - voice, Andrew Alamango - voice and guitar, Alex Vella Gregory -voice and keys. Guest: Mikiel Cumbo ‘L-Iżgej’
