Matthieu Chedid arrived in Malta
Matthieu Chedid and his musicians arrived in Malta on the 19th of June.
Upon his arrival in Malta, M received a history lesson on Malta from H.E. Ambassador Daniel Rondeau.
During a visit to Upper Barakka Gardens, the Ambassador gave a talk to M and his musicians on the history of the islands, focusing especially on the period of the Knights.
The heights of this garden were used by the Ottoman forces during the Great Siege of Malta in order to lead attacks on Birgu, which was the headquarters of the Order on the other bank of the Grand Harbour.
Afterwards, the Ambassador took M and his band to visit the stage which was specially being put up for the first Fête de la Musique in Malta.
