Malta, La Barokka discovered the talent she has in
her voice when she was just 16 years old. On that
realisation, she decided that it was her duty to use
and share this gift, which she believes, was given
to her by God. In addition, her voice enables her to
express the music she feels in the depth of her
heart and soul. This is the prime motivator of why
she endeavours to make a difference in people’s
lives through music.
Thus, La Barokka started vocal coaching and this
lead her into participating in various and numerous
Maltese musicals. This beautiful experience where
she came into direct contact with the general public
intensified further her determination to share
beauty with others. As she proceeded on this
journey, she also discovered that the most important
voyage one ought to take in life is to connect and
be connected with one’s own heart.
In 2000, La Barokka gave her first debut concert in
the Mdina Cathedral in Malta. This concert attracted
a crowd of around 900, which included the President
of the Republic of Malta and the Prime Minister. On
hearing her, the President was enchanted and as a
result, invited her to give a concert at his Palace
in San Anton Gardens that same year. The following
years saw La Barokka giving another concert at the
St. James Cavalier, which was followed by another in
St. Julian’s at a complex called Bay Street.
In 2004, La Barokka released her popular single
called ‘You’. This is a blend of Classical and Hip
Hop music, which was produced by Elton Zarb and
Tonio Cardona of Freetime Studios and written by
Robbie Govus. The song also featured the local
popular Hip Hop singer Pendemonium. In 2005, the
same song was chosen by the New York Filming Academy
for a music video shot in the heart of London.
One can say that 2004 was an intense yet successful
year for La Barokka. She gave another two wonderful
concerts at the Hilton and the Corinithia Palace and
these events attracted at least a crowd of a 1000
person. Here, La Barokka creatively managed to
combine Classical, Hip Hop and African beat.
La Barokka’s prime aim is to be an internationally
renowned artist, with the specific vision to attract
people to a GREAT LIFE. She lives her life out of
the Christian message which says that: “what you sow
is what you reap”. This is the vision which she
constantly keeps in front of her eyes and which
motivates her each and every activity. Her
philosophy is that each person on this planet is
born for a particular purpose. This means that every
single human being is nothing less than a miracle
and insists that we all have a great light emitting
and burning out of our being. Every time she sings,
she is made to feel nothing but gratitude towards
God for freely giving her this talent, which she
believes is God’s light shining through it.
La Barokka is all about beauty. Her name means a
‘Blessing’ because even though the word ‘Barokka’ is
derived from ‘Baroque’, it is also derived from the
word ‘Barka’, which in Maltese means ‘Blessing’. She
humbly thanks all those people who feel blessed with
the gift of her voice and those many others who open
their hearts up to her message.
In 2007, La Barokka started to produce her own TV
show, one produced with the American co-host John Di
Lemme from New York. The show is called ‘Barokka’
and it aims at spreading the culture of success and
faith. More is yet to come for her. Her aim is to
fulfil whatever is God’s will for her.
In November 2007, La Barokka produced successfuly
another concert at the Hilton, where the popular
John Di Lemme was among the Vip guests with his wife
Christe Di lemme. They were so enchanted by La
Barokka's versatility and the emotion that she gave
to the fully packed hall, that they invited her to
produce the same concert in Atlanta GA. The concert
was highly praised by members of the media and was
eventually broadcasted on Christmas Day on PBS TV,
the Maltese National TV Station.
In March 2008, La Barokka flew again to America, to
Atlanta GA, where she rocked the VIP guests invited
for the Find Your Why Main Event 2008 at Sheraton.
Among the Star Guests there were Coach Ken Carter
(of the film Coach Carter produced by Paramount
Pictures), Dan Giordano (a famous entrepreneur from
Florida), Orrin Hudson (the founder of Be
Someone.org) and many other famous entrepreneurs
connected with film production in Hollywood.
La Barokka has been invited to go to Los Angeles for
various meetings connected with the Hollywood
industry and at the moment she is working hard in
her studio in Malta to produce the best album ever.
