Watch: A blast from the past from barbershop quartet Barbetti

Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

Barbetti, Malta’s first male barbershop quartet, have released their first cover single: a rendition of Happy Together, a 1967 hit by The Turtles.

Barbetti were established under the auspices of Studio 18 in 2017, when they debuted with a Christmas concert at Casino Maltese, in Valletta. Since then they have performed numerous best-loved songs by music giants such as Queen, The Beatles, Billy Joel, and even Disney – all in the unique style of barbershop.

Barbershop is a style of a capella music traditionally sung by an all-male quartet, so all you will hear in this video are human voices – specifically, the voices of Luke Hili (tenor), Dario Mifsud Bonnici (lead), James Azzopardi Meli (baritone), and Daniel Grixti (bass). The quartet have since the beginning been under the musical direction of Dr Joe Gatt, and have recorded this cover single at Blacklight Studios.
