KEMM HU SABIĦ

MIAF presents three artist-collective videos engaging over 100 local singers, actors and dancers. One of three artist collective videos that features a new arrangement of the Maltese classic “Kemm Hu Sabiħ” composed by Paul Abela to the lyrics of Ray Mahoney, originally sung by the late Sammy Bartolo. This stunning performance is produced in collaboration with the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra and the arrangement is scored by Kris Spiteri for string quartet, flute, piano, bass and drums. “Kemm Hu Sabiħ” features 17 of Malta’s most renowned singers each interpreting a different verse from the song, leading to a wonderful collage of voices evoking unity and solidarity during these challenging times.
