A string of cultural events was kicked off at Cultural Events Brand’s Electrifying Elmo, where buskers and street performers had the opportunity to promote their work at the wonderful space of St Elmo on the 5th September.
A number of Maltese and foreign street artists were part of the launch, including fire dancers, acoustic sessions, and a performance by wolrd-class street escapologist and member of the London Magic Circle, Tony Roberts.
Musical entertainment was headlined by Airport Impressions. They were followed by Indie band No Snow No Alps, accordionist Brian Tonna, harpist Michelle Paris and guitar duo Este Mundo, who kept the music vibes going throughout the night. These are just a handful of the artists who formed part of this excellent event.
“I would like to thank all those who attended and supported us for our first event,” said Kevin Naudi, CEB Malta organiser. “Our aim is to organise regular events, promoting the busking scene and performing arts, as well as showcasing Malta’s unique spots which remain unused. We are sincerely grateful to our team: Karl Borg, James Caterers, Vegware, and Eva Garden for make up, along with all our other sponsors and our fantastic team of artists and performers, who made this event possible,” added Mr. Naudi.
