As an Australian-bom composer of Maltese heritage my upbringing encompassed an interesting combination of local and Mediterranean culture. My father, Joseph Alexander Galea, is active in the Australian Maltese community as both a singer and guitarist of Maltese music. 1 was exposed to the language and culture from an early age, the sounds o i ^ ^ r u x being imprinted on my memory for as far back as I can remember.
