Victoria is pushing ahead with its musical festivals in its efforts to be crowned the capital city of culture in the Maltese islands. But there is more to it than Gozitan efficiency as, once again, the Gualitana Festival of Music, under the direction of Colin Attard, has been at the cutting edge of musical culture, branding a new Gozo which, throughout the last three decades, has consistently emerged as a town brimming with cultural festivals.
