One from Mosta, Two from Żabbar shortlisted for 64th Blake Prize

Leber and Chesworth's video made in Melbourne's Maltese community has been shortlisted for the 64th Blake Prize.

Part singing, part public argument and part public confession, the song form of ‘Spirtu Pront’ emanates from working class bars in Malta. Improvised and often inflammatory grievances are publicly aired in a highly disciplined mode of practice, with strict stylistic and social rules.
