Valletta 2018 is supporting GħaNasori: Unity in Diversity at the Inquisitor’s Palace in order to promote further intangible heritage.

The GħaNasori is a fascinating project by Fiorella Camilleri, a sub-principal flute and piccolo player with the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra. The concert will delve into performances of Għana tal-Fatt, Għana fil-Għoli, Makjetta, Botta u Risposta and Nasori, and will be complimented by a final infusion of Għana and Nasori. The Nasori is the Japanese imperial court dance.

Music will be complimented by brief presentations by Director of Culture Ms Catherine Tabone on Malta’s Intangible Culture Heritage and its ratification process for UNESCO, Dr Philip Ciantar on Maltese Għana, Fiorella Camilleri on Nasori, and Dr Petra Caruana Dingli on creative thinking and innovation. Mr Joe Camilleri will be launching and presenting a new technological device which will be used to film the project in Virtual Reality.

Japanese and Maltese drinks and canapes will be served during a post-performance talk.

The event, supported by Valletta 2018, Heritage Malta, Arts Council Malta and the EU Japan Fest, will take place this Saturday 6th May at the Inquisitor’s Palace and starts at 19.30pm. Tickets are available in three options, seated, cushions and standing. The price for the seated tickets is €15 (Heritage Malta members at €13), cushions at €5, and standing at €3. Tickets are available from all Heritage Malta museums and sites and online.
