Sowing The Seeds Of Love / Chanelle Fenech debuts with Feel / Rock 'N' Malta 2024

Kapitlu 13 new song 'Żerriegħa ta’ Mħabba' with violinist Maria Cini

On Friday, 14th July, Kapitlu 13 and violinist Maria Cini presented an original rap-style song, titled "Żerriegħa ta’ Mħabba" (Seeds of Love), which is related to the Feast of the Doctrine in Ħal Tarxien. The performance took place during a unique show. Additionally, on Saturday, 15th July, there was an air and ground fireworks display, followed by a procession on Sunday morning, featuring the devoted statue of the Madonna of the Doctrine.

In a statement, Ian Massa, the Secretary of the Youth Section & Doctrine Followers, emphasized the intensive work that went into creating this song, including efforts to produce a music video featuring various Doctrine followers of all ages.

The song "Żerriegħa ta’ Mħabba" tells the story of a lesser-known tradition of a small winter feast, which has now evolved into a multi-day celebration, with society embracing all external festivities, including the casino and warehouse, both owned by the same society. The song also addresses the fire that broke out during this feast, destroying the float and the band that had been formed a few weeks prior.

Mr. Massa dedicated the song to past, present, and future Doctrine followers who, with courage and determination, have strived and will continue to strive to maintain the stability of this feast in Ħal Tarxien.

He mentioned that this song is the first of its kind, written by Kapitlu 13, and it pays tribute to Doctrine followers and their patroness, the Madonna of the Doctrine.
