Alexia Baldacchino, born on 25 June, 1981. From Sliema. She is a Maltese, freelance artist, and since 2011 she lives at Mellieħa.

Alexia is the founding member of the acclaimed metal band Memento Nostri (currently inactive). The band she created focused on promoting Maltese history, in particular the Great Siege of 1565 which was the theme chosen for the concept album.

In August 2006, the band launched their first single to much critical acclaim. Memento Nostri launched their promo album Pro Patria at Montekristo Estates on August 21, 2010 in an event that also featured the official launch of the band and the video of the CD's title track. They were warmly received by the general public, and quickly established Memen¬to Nostri as one of the more unique bands our local music scene has produced.

The band was nominated for 2 awards at the Malta Music Awards 2010, namely Best Heavy Metal Band and Best website, winning the latter. It was a great honour to be nominated for two awards especially having entered the awards with an EP, not a full-length album.

Given the unique music combination and theme, the band received various requests from offshores record labels and touring possibilities but due to difficult circumstances the band was facing, these possibilities had to be declined.

During 2013 and 2014, she was also the vocalist of Medieval-inspired band Bibita, where together with her fellow band members she performed all around Malta in various events.

Since then Alexia together with her husband formed a duo named Tryst Arcane, creating a unique style of music which they are calling ‘Minimal Dark’. Deliberately shorn of any conventional percussive arrangements, Tryst Arcane’s music emanates simply from an esoteric rendezvous of sweeping keys’ riffs combined with mystifying vocal melodies. Lyrics (written by Alexia) garner elements of mysticism mixed with realism pertinent to our existence. n late 2019 their first album AUTUMN was released and in November 2021, the same album will be released on vinyl with the support of the Arts Council Malta. The duo decided that proceeds will be donated to Puttinu Cares and The University of Malta - Research, Innovation, Development Trust (RIDT).

In March 2020 Alexia was nominated for Best Song-Writer award at the Malta Music Awards. The same album was also nominated for Best Alternative Album Award on the same occasion.

Alexia Baldacchino is also a Maltese artist who has exhibited work at St James Cavalier Centre for Creativity, Malta.

Currently, Alexia is also involved with various bands and artists, featuring as a guest vocalist by the name of MakabrAl.
