MMI 2016 Listeners' Picks Poll

From M3P
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The annual MMI Listeners' Picks poll aims to establish the top favourite releases of the year among the weekly Mużika Mod Ieħor podcast listeners.


A list of music from Maltese recording artists released in 2016 was compiled by Toni Sant for his eleventh annual MMI Listeners' Picks poll. This is not a fully comprehensive list of 2016 releases; Toni Sant has always maintained, through his podcast and blog, that he is somewhat selective - but the scope has always been to include as many titles as possible at the nomination stage.


Here is the list of nominations for 2016. Please feel free to make any suggestions or corrections you see fit through the talk page. [M3P Registration/login required]
