The text currently on this page needs further work. It was most likely imported or reproduced from a website associated with the subject of the page - possibly through a process involving far-from-perfect machine translation, often with awkward results. It is awaiting the attention of an experienced M3P editor, which could be you.

The Gukulari Ensemble aims to revive Maltese folk instruments and Malta-related music, from that of the Knights of St. John to traditional folk melodies. The group has recorded two CD's: Malta's Musical Legacy(2002), and Doqqli Daqqa! (2005)

The Ġukulari Ensemble was formed by Anna Borg Cardona in 2002, with the specific aim of recording music researched and published in the book A Musical Legacy: Malta-related music found in foreign libraries. The Ensemble has since continued to perform at various venues reviving music ranging from formal dances of the knights of St John to music of the Maltese town dwellers, lively airs of the humble folk, as well as ghana melodies. The musicians generally perform in elegant 18th century costumes. The Ġukulari feel a firm commitment to the revival of Malta’s music and musical instruments, all of which strengthen Malta’s musical identity.

In 2005 the Ġukulari Ensemble went on to record a second CD of Maltese traditional music entitled Doqqli Daqqa! (Play me a tune!).
