Tikka Banda, founded by musician Justin Formosa and some friends in 2013 is, as its name implies, a band with a rather small formation. It is made up from traditional Maltese elements which are normally found in traditional band marches. Alegria Dance Company is Malta's only professional dance company specialising in Flamenco dance. Established since 2009 under the direction of Ingrid Sciberras, Alegria has performed locally and overseas in Art Festivals, Theatre Productions, Charity Events and private functions. Tikka Banda's objective is to keep the Maltese Festa alive throughout the year by offering different presentations of music through its small formation.  In the past months, Tikka Banda continued to evolve and with the participation of 10 musicians and 4 choreographers, it is succeeding in displaying Maltese and International Music in a contemporary and interactive spectacle.  At the same time, Alegria has recently been working on some experimental work fusing the gypsy art form with various traditional Maltese folk music and traditions. In ‘Tikka Alegria’, Alegria will be working alongside Tikka Banda accompanying these talented musicians to some traditional band marches synonymous with our popular summer village festas. With choreography by Estelle Bonello Sant, Alegria’s Dancers together with the band musicians will be transforming the University Quadrangle to a local village feast.
