Last Saturday evening the OASI Foundation’s Primary Prevention Team in collaboration with APS Bank and GO, held the 19th edition of the annual open-air festival Riflessi Sajfin, at the Menqa in Marsalforn, Gozo.
The OASI Foundation stages Riflessi Sajfin with three clear aims. Primarily to promote local talent as an alternative leisure by providing for prospective young artists an opportunity to exhibit themselves on a professionally equipped stage in front of a big audience. Secondly the events provides a channel through which OASI can promote its preventive messages against alcohol and drug abuse, and thirdly to provide free, family-friendly entertainment to the general public in return for its support during the years.
The Foundation said that the three hour festival was a huge success, with a variety of artists performing on stage and with hundreds of Maltese, Gozitans and foreigners attending the event. The festival’s stage was provided by the Culture Department at the Gozo Ministry, and was equipped with the latest light (by MICHO Lighting) and sound (by ProStage Sound). They went on to say that the thrilling experience was a delight for presenters Katrina Pavina and Gino Bezzina.
