The Strada Stretta Concept under the auspices of the Valletta 2018 Foundation presents a performance of visual art and Għana in « Mosaic-Għana-Mużajk ».

French photographer & artist Katel Delia aka Katelia, will be joining forces with a group of għannejja from Żejtun, for another Strada Stretta Concept event, under the artistic direction of Giuseppe Schembri Bonaci.

Katelia who has family roots in Żejtun, was introduced to Ta’ Ġanna bar in Żejtun by Schembri Bonaci, where she was immediately attracted to Maltese għana and the għannejja who are present at this bar every Sunday performing Maltese Ghana.

Sunday after Sunday, Katel started taking photos of all the interesting faces at the bar and from this exercise she composed a monumental photo-mosaic made up of around 900 unique pictures.

The photo-mosaic will be on display on the 26th April, 8pm onwards where the għannejja will be performing live.
GĦana Singers: l-iżġej, il-kina (Angelo Theuma), Tas-seba’ rġiel
