Claire Tonna photography by Tumer Genturk

The life and works of the late Leonard Cohen will be commemorated during Notte Bianca with a special concert given by Singer/Songwriter Claire Tonna celebrating the naked truth in Cohens’ songs and in our own human nature. The concert will be composed mainly of Leonard Cohen songs accompanied by some of Claire Tonna’s own compositions that speak loud and honestly the nakedness of life’s ugliness, iniquity and unbearable beauty we all face and live. What breaks us and makes us.

The acclaimed singer-songwriter will be accompanied by an exquisite set of musicians and featured artists : Daniel Sant on piano, Michael Galea on drums, jazz singer Francesca Galea, songer/songwriter Sasha Vella who recently returned to the island, Brian Tonna on accordion, and Chris Cini on violin.

The concert will be happening on the 7th October 2017 at the recently refurbished courtyard of Palazzo de La Salle, the space belonging to the ‘Malta Society of Arts’ situated in 219, republic street Valletta, Malta.

Performances are at 20:30pm and at 22:30pm.

that some people never find
they would give anything to have
but they do not understand the cost
if they understood
they would still want to have it
‘where do you have to go?
they might ask
i would say
‘i lived in the eye of the moon-
it was perfect’ Maria Mar
