Baklava is a classic-pop group from Malta. As of late 2010 they are a string quintet fronted by a female singer.

The group is best known for its participation in the national selection for Malta's entry to the Eurovision Song Contest.

They first appeared as a trio in 2008 with Kamikaze Lover, the first of two failed attempts to make it to the Malta Eurosong in 2009 and 2010, with songs written by Philip Vella and Gerard James Borg. The other song was called Eurphoria.

With a new line-up in late 2010, they managed to make it to the Malta Eurovision Song 2011 with the song Moon Dance, also written by Philip Vella and Gerard James Borg. This song received considerable attention in the run up to the contest, mostly for its use of the Maltese language in the lyrics and a strong hint of traditional Maltese music in the melody. Moon Dance was featured on the 243rd Mużika Mod Ieħor podcast as one of Toni Sant's five picks from Malta's national Eurovision selection for 2011.

2010/11 line-up: Stephanie Zammit (singer), Joseph Chetcuti (violin), Mariella, Rahia Awalom, and Joseph Buttiegieg (cellos).
