Ħrejjef Maltin | Maltese Folktales is a valuable collection of imaginative stories which have been passed down from one generation to the next, reflecting local culture.
This publication is a unique heritage gift … but it is also a contemporary art piece. Each of the ten folktales is illustrated by a different Maltese artist so that the publication portrays a vibrant showcase of Maltese art.
The audio CD presents a storytelling cycle of local folktales, in Maltese and English, accompanied by an innovative music score. Heritage, literature, illustrations, design and music come together in this unique publication to celebrate Maltese folktales.
