Description

Dawk li jiftakru l-invażjoni ta’ kanzunetti Taljani u Ingliżi ħerġin friski u numerużi mill-kaxxi tar-Rediffusion aktarx jiftakru wkoll lil GAETANO KANTA, li kellu l-ħila meraviljuża jadatta dawn il-kanzunetti għall-Malti. Il-lirika tiegħu mhux biss ma kinitx traduzzjoni tal-oriġinal, iżda tiddokumenta wħud mill-aktar xenetti ħajjin tal-istorja soċjali tal-ħamsinijiet u s-sittinijiet. Dan il-kunċert se jġedded il-memorji tal-udjenza matura u jeħodha lura fiż-żmien, filwaqt li għal ħafna minna se jkun skoperta ġdida ta’ materjal li reġa’ ra d-dawl wara tant snin.



Those who remember the ongoing outpour of Italian and English songs coming through their Rediffusion sets will likely also remember GAETANO KANTA, who had the extraordinary ability to adapt that music to the Maltese language. His lyrics weren’t a direct translation of the original, but documented the salient social events of the 50s and 60s. This concert will revive the memories of a mature audience, and take it back in time – but for many, this material will be a first-time revelation brought back into the limelight after decades.



Performers: Dorothy, Samaria, Gianluca, Paul, Joseph, Vincienne & Francesca Bezzina.
