The staging of every competition requires a team of dedicated personnel and last years' edition of the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza won by Mike Spiteri and his song B'Rieda Tal-Azzar was one of the most innovative thus far noting that seating was introduced for the very first time. This year, things are going to continue improving on what was built during the twentieth edition noting that Media.Link Communications has always been fully fledged to support local talent of all kinds. This years' competition features a mixture of newcomers and established personnel but what is clear is that those who were competing in the junior ranks not too long ago have now found their way amongst the elite it seems. Indifest has been picked up for yet another season in aid of the competition and this year, it will be bigger and better than it has been in the past so stay tuned.
For the second time in her young career, Christine Haber will be the leading female host of the programme and thus the competition and she will be joined by none other than someone who brings in his fair share of experience in hosting popular shows. I am talking about Ronald Briffa, who recently got the opportunity to host the Malta Eurovision Song Contest and also be our main commentator alongside last years' female host of the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza, Elaine Saliba. In the meantime, the programme whilst meeting up with the various contestants in this years' edition, notably two (2) competing in the Established category and another one (1) competing in the Teenage Category, there will be the typical questions with a hint of satire asked by newcomer host James Cassar, who experience in the world of entertainment is clearly gaining pace noting his work in creating events around the country. He was also one of the judges during the initial phases of the 2011 edition of the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza.
The merge between the committee of the competition and indeed is very much apparent this year noting that the Chairman, Mark Azzopardi also picture above will be producing the programme himself in order to keep everything in line with what the committee would like to see put forth. Promotion is vital to each and every contestant and Mark along with the team on the show and the team behind the competition will look to it that everything happens as it should. During the first programme, the guests will be none other than Stephanie Zammit with the track Abjad u Iswed composed by Philip Vella and penned by Gerard James Borg, Rachel Verzin who will be taking part with Dell L-Istilel composed by Dominic Cini and penned by Stephen Baldacchino and Derrick Schembri with the song Niftakar Fik composed by the same Dominic Cini and penned by Stephen Baldacchino. The latter will be performing live whilst the former two will perform in playback.
There will be a number of twists and turns during this years' edition of the programme Indifest so one has to make sure to keep his eyes peeled open for everything that Christine and Ronald utter out of their mouths noting that all of the songs might be coming closer to you, much more quicker than you think, hence, be quick to react as an announcement is made. Indifest along with the Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza is being fully supported for the third year running by escflashmalta.com as we aim to promote everything possible when it comes to the local music scene. One last note that we would like to mention is that there will be a notable amount of special guests during the series and the first one will be none other than 1995 Eurovision Song Contest representative and last years' winning entrant Mike Spiteri who was also a judge during the initial judging phase of this years' competition. Therefore, on Tuesday at 20:30 CET, tune in to NET Television for the first programme!
