Malta: Kaya Invited to Maiori as Special GuestWritten by Marc Calleja Bayliss
Italy has acquired great prestige through the art of music throughout the years especially due to the prestigious Sanremo festival which brings together some of the most prominent names in the Italian music industry. It is a competition in the end but several artists use it also as a platform to launch their most recent material noting that the rules imply that all of the tracks entered have to be of original material. Due to the overwhelming success of such a music competition, several towns across Italy organize smaller competitions such as the Canzoni Del Mondo in Maiori. There has also been a lot of local interest in this competition especially due to the fact that seven years ago, Kaya was the winner of two awards, being the only artist ever to succeed in doing so and this has somewhat prompted the organizers to invite her as a special guest for this years' edition which will be happening in a couple of days time.
We learned that Kaya will be a special guest within the past couple of hours having been the only recipient of best interpretation of an original song as well as the best voice of the competition. She is expected to be performing her most recent single entitled Touched By Angel written by Knut-Oyvind Hagen as well as a brand new track entitled Crazy for You written by Gorgi Kalpakidis who also wrote her entry for the Malta Eurovision Song Contest 2012. This competition first came to prominence a couple of days ago due to the fact, that Malta will be represented by none other than Grecia Bezzina following her runner-up finish at the Għanja Tal-Poplu competition earlier this year. On that occasion, she had performed the song Tal-Komma Twila composed by Dario Bezzina and penned by Emil Calleja Bayliss but this time round, she will be performing a brand new track. The delegation abroad includes her brother as well as Noel D'Amato on behalf of the Għanja Tal-Poplu Committee. On behalf of the editorial board at escflashmalta.com, we would like to wish Grecia and Kaya the very best of luck as they continue to put their country first thanks to their stunning talents.
