(TRAVPR.COM) UK - May 10th, 2012 - Ghanafest is Malta's annual celebration of Mediterranean folk music, with a series of concerts taking place in early June.

Held at the Argotti Gardens in Floriana, the performances will encompass traditional Maltese folk songs - known as 'ghana' - and music from Turkey, Sicily and Iran.

This year's festival is due to take place from Friday June 8th to Sunday June 10th. Tickets will be available at the door, with a €5 (£4) pass providing access to all three days of music.

Artists due to appear at Ghanafest include the Big Band Brothers, who will perform a selection of Maltese songs from the 1930s, fusion trio Trania and songwriter David Azzopardi.
