Ta' Qali Dog Park Reopens After Refurbishment

The Ta’ Qali Dog Park has been reopened and refurbished under the initiative of Project Green, led by CEO Steve Ellul, and inaugurated by the Minister for the Environment, Energy and Enterprise, Miriam Dalli. This new space offers approximately 1,627 square meters of area with new accessories and increased play obstacles for dogs of all sizes, making it an ideal place for pet owners to bring their furry friends.

The revamped park now features higher fences made of recycled wood, providing a safe and secure environment for pets to run around freely. Moreover, tents have been installed on the benches to provide shade, making it comfortable for owners to sit and relax while their pets play. The colorful space in the park adds to the overall ambiance, and the dogs are sure to love it.

This initiative is a step towards a greener future and sustainable development in Malta.

Local artist Michael Azzopardi drops album of Maltese-language love ballads 'Vaganza'

Since bursting onto the scene in 2019, local singer-songwriter Michael Azzopardi has developed quite a reputation for putting out quality music in his mother tongue, and his latest album ‘Vaganza’ is no exception.

The 13-track debut album is a project of Maltese love ballads, presenting Azzopardi’s take on the soundtrack to a Maltese date night. With crisp production, authentic songwriting and a host of features from local favourites, Azzopardi creates an unmistakable intimate soundscape unlike anything we’ve ever heard before.

The album, written and composed by Michael Azzopardi, includes performances by co-producers Jimmy Bartolo and Mark Axiak, with other features including Karmagenn’s Noah Fabri, Brikkuni’s John J. Bartolo & Sean Borg, Brodu’s iz-Zizza and electronic songstress JOON, amongst others.

Speaking about Vaganza, Azzopardi revealed that he began working on the project towards the tail end of the pandemic, peaking in 2022 when he experienced a longing for travel and romantic getaways. “The songs are snippets from my past, with healthy doses of longing and hopefulness for beautiful days to come,” he stated.

You can listen to Vaganza on streaming platforms, including Spotify, Apple Music and YouTube music.

Brillanti auditions bring Ballet and HipHop to the big stage

As Joseph Chetcuti rallies his trustworthy panel of judges – consisting of Brenda Lee Grech, Andrea Attila and Patrick Odametey – to continue their audition phase of Brillanti, the stage was filled with a wide range of dance styles.

Whether it was a classical ballet piece, an acro-dance duet routine or a Hip Hop freestyle, the judges had yet another difficult task on their hands in picking who gets to qualify for the quarter finals. 

Apart from the ‘Most Promising Dancer’ qualifications – which saw two young B-Boys spin and top-rock on stage – the episode of course saw the next batch of quarter finalists being chosen. 

The fourth episode saw freestyle dancer Luke Mizzi, acrobatic dancers Mishelle and Juliana, classical ballet dancer Benjamin Spiteri and the elegant Jade Trapani. 

Tiffany Baker and Miguel Farrugia soon followed suit after the judges’ deliberation, bringing the total of qualifiers for this episode to six! The judges will return next week on ONE TV at 2030hrs Friday to continue their search for Malta’s most brilliant dancers.
