Etnika is Malta's most famous music group, and it has a special status: preserving the old Maltese folk music from being forgotten and gathering songs and tunes from shepherds, farmers, fishermen and street traders. Music from marriage to the grave, lullabies and love songs – Etnika is reviving the heritage; sometimes playing the traditional instruments, sometimes performing modern arrangements. This combination gives rise to completely new and strangely thrilling expressive, tonal colours.

Etnika plays in concert halls and at open-air theatres, even including flamenco and jazz. The musicians have made guest appearances at numerous festivals in Europe and northern Africa and now come for the first time to Germany.
