History and tradition meet modernity as NAFRA are set to perform at the Wignacourt.

Following last Thursday’s stupendous turnout and great performances by the Wembley Store Boys as part of Wignacourt’s Summer Under The Stars series of culture and music, popular band NAFRA shall be taking the stage this coming Thursday.

“NAFRA will perform in its trio formation with Yuri Chariguine on the accordion, Luke Baldacchino on the percussion and myself on some traditional Maltese folk instruments, including iż-Żaqq (bagpipes), iż-Żummara (reed pipe) and Flejguta (cane flute),” says Ruben Zahra – the third performer and NAFRA’s general manager.

“I think that the Wignacourt is developing a unique cultural programme within a unique heritage site. Concerts, recitals, theatre performances and other cultural events are a wonderful way of experiencing a historical venue as the backdrop to a performance, and, in fact, on Thursday the audience will be able to experience the authentic sound of traditional Maltese instruments within both folk and modern musical arrangements,” he adds.NAFRA Ruben Zahra playing iz-Zaqq 1
