I just came across this music video by Maltese rap band No Bling Show titled “Lucija u Samwel”. I was impressed at the quality (artistic merit aside which I also think is cool) of the production, creativity and technique. It may seem ‘normal’ for other bands and countries but for Malta, it’s a giant step forward . Well, like any change, it’s not just “one giant step”, it’s a build up on top of countless small steps by other musicians, artists and creatives who slowly but surely have promoted, encouraged and enabled this kind of quality.
Anyway, I was going to write a long, thoughtful and insightful post about all this but Toni Sant beat me to it with an excellent one that just expresses everything I could have wanted to say. Click here to read it.
