In my opinion I believe that the Maltese music scene is very much un appreciated. For example there are loads of local bands that do not get enough recognition and even in the hip hop scene. I think if music is pushed through the main stream media it would help endorse local talent much much more.
I am sure that there would be some excuse that they might be explicit but not all songs are explicit. For example, Brodu, Djun, 5 years from now, Marmalja, Il lapes, Eddie Fresco – these are all very talented artists (there are much more), why aren’t they fed to the public like all the other mainstream music?
All other countries support their music, take Italy for example, their artists are superstars within their county (whilst they might be less known outside of their niche). We should promote locals much much more.
