DANIEL CAUCHI Artistic Director

Ibhra (Seas) features a diverse selection of Maltese songs, accompanied with English narration, inspired by a series of events that occurred at sea. Whilst sailing through texts and songs reflecting the nation’s maritime history, migration and similar water-based activities, the concert brings to light contrasting perspectives on the sea – powerful yet serene, beautiful yet dangerous, unifying yet isolating. The initiative is part of a series of Big Band Brothers’ research projects promoting Maltese culture.

About The Festival

By popular demand, the APS Summer Festival presents an additional 4 weeks of cultural activities staged along the Valletta Waterfront. Held alfresco under the stars, with historic fortifications and the sea as a backdrop, the evocative venue offers a unique location for re-introducing live events in Malta.

Featuring an eclectic choice of styles, artists include Big Band Brothers, Comedy Knights, Ray Calleja, Clare Ghigo, Alex Bezzina & Band, Red Electrick, Nadine Axisa, Studio 18 and musicians of the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra together with emerging local talent and the Malta Youth Orchestra. These Live Music Weekends are complemented with outdoor cinema nights, dance, comedy and poetry acts.

The APS Summer Festival is produced by the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra and the Valletta Cruise Port and supported by the Malta Tourism Authority, StudioSeven, Embassy Cinemas and Island Insurance Brokers.
