Fondazzjoni Ċelebrazzjonijiet Nazzjonali and Festivals Malta invite you to a concert like no other. Take a step back in time and immerse yourself in the nostalgia of 1979. 45 years ago it was Freedom day. A milestone in Maltese history should be celebrated in style. Inspired by an interactive series by Mario Laus on printed newspapers listing the twenty best songs of the moment and sometimes asking the readers to match the correct artist, the concert will symbolically take us through “L-aqwa għoxrin f’Malta”
Re-live the music that accompanied the year of Malta’s self determination to no longer be a military base but an island of peace and dialogue – the concert at MCC will feature some of the best local talents led by the talented Maestro Paul Abela. Join us for a free concert for all the ages, sit back and be transported to 1979 with top UK hits alongside Maltese music of the time. Take a nostalgic musical trip back in time when glitter and side burns started their decline, Walkman had just been released and Malta stood for a future of peace and dialogue in a Mediterranean removing the shackles of Empire.
