EJJA ‘L HAWN – A mother’s cry to her troubled son

Monday, 5 December 2022, 16:01 Last update: about 3 months ago

EJJA 'L HAWN is the new theme song launching ahead of the much anticipated fourth season of the TV series Iċ-Ċaqqufa, which returns on GO TV's Tokis after six years in the making.

The song's lyrics were authored by the series' script writer, Pierre Portelli, while the music was composed by Megan May Caruana, who sings on the track, besides being one of the newcomers on the show in her first TV drama performance. The music arrangement and mastering were entrusted to Philip and Sean Vella.

The song is a mother's cry to her troubled son. It depicts the lifelong journey of Rose, the protagonist in all four of Ic-Caqqufa's celebrated seasons (2013 - 2022). When Michael learns, at a young age, that he's the product of rape, things start to go wrong with his mental well-being. To shield him from reality, Rose puts Michael in a foreign college only to find out that loneliness, isolation and family deprivation made him worse. In this highly emotionally charged ballad, most of the social challenges faced by women who are victims of abuse are laid bare for everyone to witness.

EJJA 'L HAWN can be listened to on Spotify, iTunes and local radio stations. The music video is available on GO TV, YouTube and social media.

Megan May Caruana is a talented young musician who reached the semi-final of the X Factor Malta competition with FAITH, the band she made part of. Pierre Portelli spent most of his long career in news and communications. He is the author and producer of Ic-Caqqufa and several other award-winning media projects.  

Ic-Caqqifa season four is produced by Watermelon Media and GO Originals.  It premiers on Tokis on 19th December.
