Gozo the Island of Music

Gozo has many options in the field of music. You can go to cafes in Marsalforn, Victoria, Sannat, Qala or Xlendi where bands perform, karaoke evenings, Jam sessions or “Open Mic’s” are held! And this all year. So you can enjoy yourself!

On the main square in Victoria “It Tokk” there are regular performances of bands, singers or the so-called “Bandas”. Every village has its own Banda. A Banda consists of all the “brass” blowers that you can imagine, a big drum and a rhythm drum. At all “festa’s the Bandas are also present. They accompany the processions or perform. Also all year round, but especially in the summer.

The “Gaulitana festival” offers during 5 weeks, starting in March, all kinds of classical or cultural performances and exhibitions spread over the island! These concerts are freely accessible and very worthwhile! This festival always ends with an opera (for a fee) and a final concert. This year it was “Manon Lescaut” from Puccinini.

Gozo has two opera houses, two cinemas and a film house. The opera houses offer large professional productions such as “Jesus Christ Superstar”, “Evita” and most recently “Queens meets Goldplay”. Major productions are expected this year.

So enjoy when you live or stay on Gozo. There is always something to do in the field of music!
Enjoy listening to music on a balmy evening while enjoying a glass of wine. What else do you want! Nothing anyway!
