About the event

Following the success of last year's edition Għana Għand tal-Iżgej, Ritmu Roots Festival is thrilled to present yet another exciting opportunity to immerse yourself in the authentic and grassroots context of għana. The venue for this unique showcase will be the garage belonging to Mikiel Cumbo, fondly known as ‘L-Iżgej’.

Prepare to be captivated by some of the finest singers, guitarists, and practitioners of the għana tradition. The diverse program features two sessions of għana spirtu pront. This dynamic format involves improvised rhyming duels, traditional guitar playing, and segments of high-pitched singing known as Il-Bormliża. Beyond the music, the evening will also include traditional food and drinks, a generous offering in line with the customary hospitality of the Cumbo family. This event promises to be an exciting and authentic cultural experience, providing a glimpse into the heart of għana in its truest form. Don't miss the opportunity to be part of this celebration of tradition, music, and community.

Accessibility: Whilst this venue is wheelchair accessible, we encourage wheelchair users of persons with reduced mobility to be at the venue 30-40 minutes before the start of the event to guarantee a place. We also encourage anyone who requires assistance to email Festivals Malta's Outreach and Development Associate on so your experience can be made as seamless as possible.
