The Busker celebrates 7-year journey

The Busker are set to celebrate their 7-year journey in an intimate and raw gig on March 22nd.

The group, which has now gained major popularity for their vibrant, witty and feel-good music, started off as a folk duo in 2012, with Dario Genovese on voice/guitar and Jean Paul Borg on drums. Eventually, the duo welcomed two other members, David Grech on bass and Sean Meachen on saxophone, leading to the evolvement of the style of the group, allowing for more experimentation into genres such as blues and rock n roll.


The Busker went on to release 4 EPs, which led up to the launch of their first album The Telegram in 2016. The launch of this album was the start of a non-stop journey of live gigs, studio sessions and collaboration with other musicians. The Busker have performed in all the major local festivals and have even entertained crowds in the UK and Italy. This then led to the launch of their second album, Ladies and Gentleman last November.

Except for the loyal fans who have followed the band since 2012, not many people know of their 7-year journey. It is through this gig – This is Us – that they want to share their stories, memories and song writing anecdotes. The Busker welcomes you to hop on this intimate ride and enjoy the raw version of their repertoire.
