What do Daft Punk, One Republic, Queen, Led Zeppelin,Whitesnake, Chuck Berry and U2 have in common?
Apart from being some of the top rock/pop artists, their songs are all part of this year’s Strummin’ line up. Of course, more artists will feature in this much awaited yearly event! This year’s edition, entitled Strummin’ – What a Feelin’, will feature a long list of classic hits and will take place on the 9th and 10th October at Sir Temi Zammit Hall, University of Malta.
In Strummin’s 14th edition, Żgħażagħ Ħaddiema Nsara’s biggest project ensures an unforgettable night of musicianship, accompanied by an ensemble of around 60 guitarists. Their performance will be polished to perfection after months of preparation in order to emulate some of the greatest contributors to music.
As in previous years, all proceeds will endorse a worthy cause. Last year, Strummin’ collected funds for Dr Klown. This year’s proceeds will be going towards supporting St. Jeanne Antide Foundation and their SOAR (Surviving Abuse With Resilience) Programme, which is aimed at victims of violence in families and relationships.
Strummin’s big ensemble includes musicians and singers from a diversity of backgrounds and musical experience. Newbie musicians and singers will rub shoulder to shoulder with more experienced ones, in order to deliver a feel-good show to an ever increasing audience.
Testamant to Strummin’s increasing profile was its inclusion in two top events this year – The Farsons Great Beer Festival and Rockestra, where they were the sole supporting act in the event.
The show will be hosted by Luke Dalli and Ronald Briffa.
