Malta Independent - - NEWS -

The Pub­lic Broad­cast­ing Ser­vices launched the video of Para­chute, the song which singer Christina Ma­grin will rep­re­sent Malta with in the Ju­nior Euro­vi­sion Song Con­test 2016 next month.

The song Para­chute with mu­sic by Florent Bosh­n­jaku and lyrics by Matt Muxu Mer­cieca and Christina Ma­grin, is a cheer­ful song with a pos­i­tive mes­sage on how friends help each other in dif­fi­cult times. The happy at­mos­phere is also re­flected in the video.

Christina is seen joy­ful, danc­ing and singing in Val­letta’s streets. The video was filmed dur­ing an eight-hour ses­sion and is based on an old style, with light­ing ef­fects and the set de­sign.

This style was also is­sued through a mo­tor­cy­cle of 1936, which is seen to­ward the end of the mu­si­cal video.

The video – di­rected by Rachel Cachia from the V Squared com­pany – also in­cludes Mal­tese tra­di­tional el­e­ments, such as the Mal­tese ‘passju’ game.

The video also fea­tures 30 other per­sons, in­clud­ing dancers who per­formed with a chore­og­ra­phy by Kristina Schranz.

The Ju­nior Euro­vi­sion Song Con­test will he held at the Mediter­ranean Con­fer­ence Cen­tre on Sun­day, 20th Novem­ber. This is the sec­ond time that Malta is host­ing this fes­ti­val fol­low­ing the suc­cess last year with the song Not My Soul, sung by Des­tiny Chukun­yere.

PBS will make use of the ex­pe­ri­ence gained dur­ing the first Ju­nior Euro­vi­sion fes­ti­val that Malta hosted with the pro­duc­tion of a tele­vised spec­ta­cle of best qual­ity. This year the com­pe­ti­tion will have a record num­ber of par­tic­i­pants from 17 coun­tries.

In prepa­ra­tion for the Ju­nior Euro­vi­sion, Malta will be or­ga­niz­ing a week of events for the par­tic­i­pants, start­ing with the in­au­gu­ral cer­e­mony on the 14th of Novem­ber at the Ma­noel Theatre.
