Anġla Mifsud Iċ-Ċalija
Anġla Mifsud Iċ-Ċalija (1913-2011) was a respected folk singer from Żejtun.
In 1998 she was awarded the Order of Merit by the President of Malta, for her contribution to culture. Ironically, the Maltese state did not initiate an audio collection of her own recordings in state archives, rendering the merited award a mere ceremonial and cosmetic affair. Existing footage depicts her with three other Żejtun folksingers, Mikiel Abela Il-Bambinu, Mikiel Cutajar Is-Superstar and Żaren Mangion Il-Folfol. Her great-grandson is folk singer Clinton Bonnici tal-Lupajp.
Mifsud passed away at the venerable age of 97, on the 9th March 2011. In 2012 Żeppi Spagnol il-Kelba presented the ballad Anġla Iċ-Ċalija, in her homage.
