Nosy Neighbour Song / Joon Surprised / Get Hemplified / Anime Inspired

Updated: Jul 5, 2023

The Travellers sings about 'is-Sindikajr Malti'

The Travellers have unveiled their upcoming single, "Jum Ġdid," along with its accompanying music video. This fresh and uplifting track is featured on their latest album, "Inżul u Tlajja'," and sheds light on the Sindikajr Malti, a prevalent presence in Malta known for their incessant curiosity. In every neighborhood, there's that one nosy neighbor who possesses an uncanny knowledge of everyone's lives. They lurk in the shadows, their eyes prying, eagerly seeking to uncover every detail. This song encapsulates the essence of these inquisitive individuals, who go to great lengths to master their snooping skills, considering it an art form, and perhaps even believing they are indispensable to their community.

Sweet surprise in email

Several months ago, Joon experienced a delightful surprise when she received an email from the esteemed German director, Seb Strasser. Attached to the email was a video utilizing her track "E.T.," which had been expertly filmed by Roman Vasyanov, known for his work on notable films such as "Suicide Squad" and "Fury."

Yasmin Kuymizakis, widely recognized as Joon, hails from Dingli and is a talented singer-songwriter and producer. Recently, she has been on an incredible journey, embarking on numerous tours across the United States and securing opening slots for renowned artists of immense stature.
