The album cover

Local band Mistura has just released a new live album called “U l-Kotra Għajtet f’Daqqa – Mistura Lajv waqt Kotra 2016”. This album, which contains songs recorded during the “Kotra – Kunċert Kontra l-Kurrent” concert held last March, is a first for Mistura, which to date had released one studio album in 2014 called “U d-Dinja Tkompli Ddur”.

“In the space of two years we changed from a duo into a fully-fledged rock band, and we therefore felt that until our second studio album is finalised we would issue a recording more representative of what we’re playing live at the moment”, said Malcolm Bonnici, who together with Antonio Olivari is a founding member of the group. The band now includes Matthew Agius on bass and Mark Andrew Azzopardi on drums.

“Apart from six songs from the first album, which have since changed considerably, we decided to add another two. These are ‘Fil-Kju’ from the super Aħn’Aħna Jew M’Aħniex and another one as a teaser from the new album to give a hint of the direction we’ve taken since we adopted the new style.”

Mistura write and perform songs exclusively in Maltese, with music that has elements of blues, rock and folk. It debuted in 2012 at the L-Għanja tal-Poplu festival where they won the WAFA award for Best New Talent. Since then they have performed at a variety of venues including Rock the South, Teatru Unplugged, the Farsons Great Beer Festival, the Evenings on Campus, Notte Bianca and Kotra.

The band would like to thank Emerson Vella for the recording and Jeremy Grech, the organiser of Kotra, for the dedication they show towards the local live scene.

“Fi spazju ta’ sentejn inbdilna minn duo fi grupp rock u allura ħassejna li sakemm noħorġu t-tieni studio album tagħna, li qed naħdmu fuqu bħalissa, ikun hemm recording aktar rapreżentattiva ta’ x’qegħdin indoqqu bħalissa lajv”, qal Malcolm Bonnici, li flimkien ma’ Antonio Olivari huwa l-membru li ħoloq il-grupp. Magħhom issa ingħaqdu Matthew Agius fuq il-bass u Mark Andrew Azzopardi fuq id-drums.

“Apparti sitt kanzunetti mill-ewwel album tagħna, li kif wieħed jinnota l-ħoss issa nbidel sew, iddeċidejna li nżidu tnejn oħra. Dawn huma ‘Fil-Kju’ mill-mitiku Aħn’Aħna Jew M’Aħniex u waħda bħala introduzzjoni mill-album il-ġdid sabiex nagħtu ħjiel tad-direzzjoni li ħadna minn meta qbadna l-istil il-ġdid tagħna.”

Mistura huwa grupp li jdoqq kanzunetti esklussivament bil-Malti, b’mużika li għandha elementi ta’ blues u rock. Mistura ddebutta fl-2012 fil-festival tal-Għanja tal-Poplu fejn ħadu l-premju WAFA għall-aqwa talent ġdid. Minn dak iż-żmien ’l hawn huma daqqew f’diversi postijiet, fosthom Rock the South, Teatru Unplugged, il-Farsons Great Beer Festival, l-Evenings on Campus, Notte Bianca u Kotra.

Il-grupp jixtieq jirringrazzja lil Emerson Vella tal-irrekordjar u lil Jeremy Grech, il-moħħ wara Kotra, għad-dedikazzjoni li juru lejn ix-xena lokali lajv.
