EJJA ‘L HAWN is the new theme song of the much anticipated fourth season of the TV series Iċ-Ċaqqufa, which returns on GO TV’s Tokis after six years in the making.
The song’s lyrics were authored by the series’ script writer, Pierre Portelli, while the music was composed by Megan May Caruana, who sings on the track, besides being one of the newcomers on the show in her first TV drama performance. The music arrangement and mastering were entrusted to Philip and Sean Vella, who did a brilliant job orchestrating the bitter-sweet tune, a perfect fit for the pungent lyrics.
The song is a mother’s cry to her troubled son. It depicts the lifelong journey of Rose, the protagonist in all four of Ic-Caqqufa’s celebrated seasons (2013 – 2022). When Michael learns, at a young age, that he’s the product of rape, things start to go wrong with his mental well-being. To shield him from reality, Rose puts Michael in a foreign college only to find out that loneliness, isolation and family deprivation made him worse. In this highly emotionally charged ballad, most of the social challenges faced by women who are victims of abuse are laid bare for everyone to witness.
You can listen to EJJA ‘L HAWN on Spotify, iTunes and local radio stations. The music video is available on GO TV, YouTube and social media.
Ic-Caqqufa season 4 is produced by Watermelon Media and GO Originals. It premiers on Tokis on 19th December.
