The 8th edition of the Qala International Folk Festival (QIFF) gets underway this Friday and this year it will bring together two Sicilian folk groups, The Qala Menhir Folk Group as hosts and several other local folk groups and musicians including Freddie Portelli and the Greenfields.
A conference focusing on the Rites of the Gozitan lifestyle will be held as part of the festival, on Saturday morning at the Qala Local Council conference hall.
This popular annual festival, which is organised by the Qala Local Council and the Qala Menhir Folk Group, transforms the small village of Qala into a medieval village with special attractions being the re-enactment of the Medieval Wedding, the Traditional Banquet and a spectacle of costumes, dance and music.
The QIFF will be held on the evenings of Friday, the 20th, Saturday, the 21st and Sunday, the 22nd September 2013.
