WHAT A FEELIN': TWO NIGHTS OF STRUMMIN' COMIN' UP!
14 years on from its first edition, Strummin' has come a very long way; far enough in fact to the point that it has turned into one of the more anticipated annual live music events on the local cultural calendar. It may not have reached the magnitude of events such as Rockestra yet, but it certainly packs a mighty punch all the same. This year, Strummin' even made it onto the Rockestra stage for an important showcase moment that instantly guaranteed a boost in its public profile that will hopefully also translate into bigger audiences.
The music project, presented by Żgħażagħ Ħaddiema Nsara (ŻĦN), was first staged in 2002, and is aimed at promoting young people's talents whilst working for a good cause by raising funds for philantropic organisations. Over the years, organisations such as Suret il-Bniedem Foundation, St Joseph Home, Puttinu Cares, Richmond Foundation and the Equal Partners Foundation have all benefitted from this initiative, and this year, all proceeds will be donated to the St. Jeanne Antide Foundation and its SOAR programme, which offers support to victims of domestic violence.
As in previous years, this year's edition of Strummin’, which has the theme of What a Feelin’ that perfectly mirrors the feelgood factor that this concert projects both onstage and among the audience, will be held at Sir Temi Zammit Hall at the University of Malta over two nights, namely Friday, October 9 and Saturday, October 10. The programme will feature tunes from the likes of Queen, Daft Punk, Whitesnake, U2, Led Zeppelin, One Republic and Chuck Berry to name but a few. The concert will be hosted by Luke Dalli and Ronald Briffa. Strummin' (What a Feelin') is powered by XFM 100.2. Tickets are available online at www.ooii.com.mt. For more information, click here.
