WATCH: Imqabba breaks Covid-19 monotony with playing of Ave Maria on bells

During these troubled times, when everyone is being asked to remain indoors, the silence in our towns and villages is palpable. Various persons, groups and entities have taken some form of initiative to brighten up the lives of others and bring hope to Society that this bad patch will eventually pass.

In Imqabba, the Santa Marija Society is coming out with a number of initiatives, including one in which a local bandsman, Chris Schembri Baldacchino, played the Ave Maria with bells. This initiative took place in the main square of the village, precisely from the balcony of the Society’s headquarters.

During the filming, all necessary precautions were taken to follow guidelines issued by the health authorities.
