Fl-ewwel fażi eliminatorja, is-sottomissjonijiet ġew evalwati minn sitt membri tal-ġurija, fil-preżenza tan-nutar tal-gvern, u minnhom intgħażlu 40 kanzunetta.

“Iktar ma jmur iżjed qed jogħla l-livell tal-kanzunetti sottomessi u l-għażla iktar qed issir diffiċli. Kif jidher biċ-ċar fir-riżultat, din is-sena ser naraw diversi wċuħ ġodda u oħrajn li ma għandhom bżonn l-ebda introduzzjoni.

*Skont il-klawżola numru 2.2 tar-Regolamenti ta’ Mużika Mużika 2023, l-ebda artist ma jista’ jipparteċipa b’aktar minn kanzunetta waħda fil-fażi finali tal-festival. Għal dan il-għan, il-kantanta Jade Vella se tkun mitluba tagħżel liema kanzunetta tixtieq tinterpreta fil-fażi finali. Il-kanzunetta li ma tintgħażilx mill-kantanta, ser tiġi assenjata lil artist ieħor fid-diskrezzjoni tal-kompożitur.

 

Festivals Malta announces the 20 semifinalists for Mużika Mużika 2023.

The third edition of Mużika Mużika will take place between March 23 and 25.

Festivals Malta announced that yesterday, Sunday 6 November, the 20 semifinalist songs for Mużika Mużika 2023 were selected through live auditions.


The third edition of Mużika Mużika was met with a positive response from singers, authors, and composers, as Festivals Malta received 149 applications for the festival. In the first eliminatory phase, the submissions were evaluated by six members of the jury, in the presence of a government notary, and 40 songs were shortlisted. Yesterday the singers presented their songs live accompanied by a backing track in front of six other members of the jury, from which the 20 semifinalist songs were selected in the presence of the notary.


"More and more the level of songs submitted is rising and the selection is becoming more difficult. As can be clearly seen in the result, this year we will see several new faces and others that need no introduction. I am sure that the third edition of Mużika Mużika will offer a great spectacle as it has become expected of us these days," said the Chairman of Mużika Mużika, Raymond Bugeja.


Now, the Festivals Malta team will enter the next phase of production, where work will begin on the musical arrangements, and the logistical preparations for the festival that will take place between the 23rd and 25th of March 2023 will intensify.


*According to clause 2.2 of the-Mużika Mużika 2023 Regulations, no artist can participate with more than one song in the final phase of the festival. In accordance with this clause, the singer Jade Vella will be asked to choose which song she would like to perform in the final phase. The song that is not chosen by the singer, will be assigned to another artist at the composer’s discretion.
