Mistura started as an acoustic duo by Malcolm Bonnici and Antonio Olivari. It debuted in 2012 at the L-Għanja tal-Poplu festival where they won the WAFA award for Best New Talent.
Since then, they have morphed into a fully-fledged electric band and performed at a variety of venues including Rock the South, Kotra, the Farsons Great Beer Festival, the Evenings on Campus and Teatru Unplugged. Għanafest will see them performing for the first time as a rock band after their short unplugged set in 2014. Mistura write and perform original songs exclusively in Maltese, with music that has elements of blues, rock and folk. In 2014 they released their first album, called “U d-Dinja Tkompli Ddur”, which is packed with biting social commentary.
