Official video of Ħarsa Biss released

It’s official! The music video of the winning song of Mużika Mużika, called Ħarsa Biss, has been released on Festivals Malta’s digital platforms.

“After the success of Mużika Mużika, Festivals Malta immediately started working on the music video for the winning song, a high-quality production that reflects the quality of the festival itself and which features various special effects,” said Annabelle Stivala, the CEO of Festivals Malta.

The music video, which involved several hours of rehearsals so the team could synchronise set changes with the dynamic scenes, was filmed on a one-shot video at the stunning Fort St Angelo in Birgu, a technique that has rarely been seen in local productions

The scenes featured a myriad of costume changes, props, lighting and special effects and was interpreted by Glen Vella, composed by Philip Vella and written by Joe Julian Farrugia.

“We realised that this was a very complex project, but that did not stop us, we involved several people and everyone had to work together in order to film the one-shot video,” said Joseph Cauchi, the artistic director.

Ħarsa Biss will be kept alive through this music video. This video was part of the legacy that this prestigious festival will leave behind it,” said Norman Hamilton, Festivals Malta chairman.
