somers

Join him to have a chance to experience its sound. He will also be giving a workshop on friday and producing a song together with people from the community using sounds made at the Jamming Area!

hamilton

A true inspiration. This multi-instrumentalist is a magician on the guitar, harmonium and percussions with a voice to blow you away. He’ll be roaming in and out of the jamming area bringing joy with him whenever he does. He’ll also be performing during the closing ceremony at the why not healing area so keep an eye out!

kapitlu

Kapitlu tlettax, a well known local artist group with a strong foundation in Maltese hip hop! Their interest is to create a style of hip hop that is a little rebellious and slightly satirical. There are still those moments though, when they add a touch of their sentimental element,  touching the hearts of everyone.

asena

The singing bowls emit a tone that pierces right through to your core. It’s not easy to ride the wave and keep the tone as pure as can be, but Asena can surf the sound with the best of them. Join her as she shares her talents during our morning practices and in the jamming area. A trained sound healer she will surely provide music especially for the soul.

noemi

Another part of our ukelele family! This Catalan is always wearing a smile, and a ukelele. She’ll definitely make you laugh and is simply a ton of fun. Keep an eye out for her especially when in the company of other ukelele artists. She also has an interesting instrument called a GuitaLele, who knows, maybe we’ll get to experience that too! 🙂

cult

Fishcult is a local music label founded some years ago and were initially known as Progressi Lesti. Currently they have projects with upcoming artists in different genres.Their aim is to make music which can be enjoyed. New to the scene, talented and fun and they look forward to perform alongside other artists at Earth Garden together with the Music Playground Community.

martin

The Maltese version of the pied piper, his melodious meditational flute playing will be accompanying us during our Saturday and Sunday morning yoga and meditation as well as throughout the weekend during jamming. Do not be fooled however, he has a treasure chest (literally) of mysterious instruments from all over, including a shruti box. He might even pick up a didgeridoo once or twice if we play our cards right!

janice

“I express all that’s in my soul through music. That smile, that vibe and the unique feeling it transmits is unexplained and can’t be obtained by anything else other than Music.”

cjay

CJay Cordina is a local hip-hop artist and rapper. He is known for his deep, moving words and really brings out the relationship between rap and poetry as lyrical mastery. He recently released his first mixtape which we HIGHLY recommend. He also forms part of a group we have been connected to from our birth, soul movement 🙂
