Ilħna Mitlufa – Lost Voices

By Andrew Alamango
Time
4pm
Date
5th May
Location
Teatru Astra, Victoria Gozo

Ilħna Mitlufa is a celebration of the Maltese tradition għana, a vocal expression inherited from the land to which we were once deeply connected. It is a musical journey that goes in search of the voice we once had, used by those who came before us, to express their daily fears and aspirations.

It is an age-old story, woven by singers past and present, told in poetry – spoken, written and recorded – where the għannej as poet, entertainer and storyteller, sings for those who have lost their voice, renewing the unbroken tradition of joining together in song.

Ilħna Mitlufa is a quest to find one’s voice through song, when words are not enough.
