    appropriate to have one in the Maltese language, one of my favorites.........Big Band brothers Rock band. 'Siehbi fil kabord tal kcina' hmm strange title 'My friend in the kitchen cupboard'....I like the song however



    Ok I got to know of the meaning of the title and lyrics....its about a child who is bullied at school and imagines he has a perfect friend living in the kitchen cupboards.

    It seems like a very vibrant music scene, Maleth, especially for such a small place in terms of population. Is most of it in English? If it is, does it make it easier to cross over and get some coverage in Britain, for example?

    Very few sing in Maltese Angela as that will be a guarantee that their work will just remain locally with a very small Market. However Im not sure how much of the ones sung in English get any more sales. Most of them do it through itunes but there is always a possibility to have better sales singing in English.

    I know for sure that most artists do much from their own pockets and from the love of it which is good as they keep the Island rocking :). Some singers made a name overseas. Kevin borg won Swedish Idol some three years ago. You hear of the occasional Maltese singer that hits the topuk 40 but normally its people who set home in the UK.

    Ironically enough Claudio Baglioni revived a 70's Maltese song (L'ahhar bidwi f'wied Il asel / the last farmer in Honey valley) in Perfect Maltese accent. Yes very sad indeed that we only have folk songs in Maltese and other numbers that are just reserved for local song Festivals without much promotion. I will post a few with no video to accompany them and maybe inferior recordings to the ones aimed to sell internationally.

    Sammy bartolo 'Kemm u sabih' How beautiful. Wrote this when he knew he was passing away



    How beautiful it is


    How beautiful it is that in the heavy shadow of the clouds
    You close your eyes to see the darkness young man
    How beautiful it is to sleep and wakeup
    But still see darkness even though your eyes are opened
    How beautiful it is to live and live your life in time that is not a tool to show you the end
    Because its time itself that will remove all you have achieved
    Let the sun in its rise and in its setting
    will find you caressing the fog
    Let the moon play with the wheat stalk
    that has to die to seed the ground toregenerate
    How beautiful it is to climb the top ofall the hills
    and down in darkness pass through the hidden and mysterious paths
    How beautiful it is to be forgotten from the crowds
    And your name will become a comfort reserved only to you
    How beautiful is the sunrise and it never gets dark
    or if it gets dark there will be no heart beating fast out of fear
    How beautiful it is if the star keeps shining
    it will find the fishing port with beating waves
    How beautiful it is to keep living yourlife till the end
    and at the end you find a door to start all over again
    How beautiful are these words once I believe them
    and I believe them because I wrote them in this song

    I hate to be a pest, but do you by any chance have an English translation for this handy, or even just the lyrics (I could probably make out quite a bit of it if I saw it written, which is the case for me even with very "foreign" sounding dialects of Italian far from the standard and even with things like Provencal)? I'm intrigued by the title. Don't go to any real bother, though, I know we're all busy; it's enjoyable just as it is...

    How very lovely and moving, Maleth. I've saved this one to my collection. I adore things like this... I've told you before when you've posted songs in Maltese that there is clearly a poetic and sensitive temperament in the Maltese. Beautiful indeed.

    Pest? its a pleasure

    here is a quick translation. Its written in an era when sons and daughters were not working fields anymore (migrating) but the songs talk of getting jobs in towns and often parents were left alone with the farm work the only trade they knew.

    Like a hermit
    Cut off from the crowds
    among trees and brambles
    I go to make my living
    No more sons and daughters
    now Working in the towns
    The Last farmer in Honey Valley is me


    They come to Honey Valley on thosebeautiful days
    They come for walks, they come to rest
    aboundand fields and others reserved
    for the hunters in time for turtledoves
    behind the tilling machine, working alone
    The last farmer in honey valley is me


    snails are out with first rains, tymefrom the rocks
    They come to honey valley they comeevery sunday
    It was a dry year, how bad it was for the fruit
    No good sales, these last days I was alittle tired
    Behind the tilling machine working alone
    the last farmer in honey valley is me


    They come to honey valley on thosebeautiful days
    They come to honey valleys on Sundays
    Like a hermit
    Cut off from people
    amongst trees and brambles
    I go to make my living
    No more son and daughters
    Now working in the towns
    The Last farmer in Honey Valley is me

    This is the Honey valley (Wied il asel)

    I had a feeling I would really like it, and I do. It could have been written by one of the farmers in my own area. Lovely.

    Im glad you like them Angela and can also find them inspiring. You are right, the songs in the local Maltese song festival 'Anja tal poplu' (song of the people) seem to be more focused on the lyrics rather then Music and often covering current social situations.
