MALTA PARTICIPATES IN FÊTE DE LA MUSIQUE BERLIN 2022

Maltese artists recently took part in the Fête de la Musique Berlin following an initiative by the Embassy of Malta in Berlin. The Fête de la Musique is organised by Musicboard Berlin on behalf of the State of Berlin. It celebrates music worldwide on June 21 – the beginning of summer and the longest day of the year – and is open to anyone who wants to participate. All kinds of musicians – young and old, amateur and professional, any musical orientation and genres – take to the streets, squares and parks to share their music.

With the support of the Cultural Diplomacy Fund of the Ministry for Foreign and European Affairs and Trade, Alien Grace, The New Victorians, and Alexandra Alden were selected to participate in the festival.

Alien Grace is a band based in Berlin itself which consists of artists originating from different countries. Dan Ganado is the band’s guitarist. The band features a music blend of folk music with gospel, soul, as well as a touch of rock. The New Victorians are a sister-duo act with a keen interest in live sound-manipulation and original electronic music in theatre. The duo was awarded Artist of the Year by the Arts Council Malta in April 2019. Alexandra Alden began writing lyrics and poetry at the tender age of 6, while she was living in Germany as a child. She is currently pursuing her musical career in the Netherlands.

The three groups performed on June 21 at the central location of Neptunbrunnen, just in front of the Main City-Hall of Berlin. Alexandra Alden also performed during the opening ceremony on June 20 at the Gemeinschaftshaus Gropiusstadt in Neukölln, Berlin.

The project aimed at highlighting affinities between the artistic environment in Malta and Berlin as well as to promote Maltese talent overseas.​
