This year’s edition of the Gibraltar International Song Festival (GISF) has – as on previous occasions – attracted hundreds of songs from authors and composers worldwide. The countries from which entries have been received are: Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Finland, France, Georgia, Gibraltar, Iceland, Indonesia, Israel, Italy, Mexico, Morocco, the Netherlands, Norway, Peru, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom and Venezuela.
Out of the hundreds of entries, 12 were selected ‘blind’ by the panel of judges, i.e. purely and simply on merit, as a result of which authors, composers and interpreters from the following countries will be participating in the GISF Finals Gala that will be held on Saturday, 6 May, at the Tercentenary Sports Hall: Chile, Cuba, Gibraltar, Iceland, Italy, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom and Venezuela.
The GISF 2017 has also announced that this year’s festival will be honoured with the presence of one of Spain’s best voices and biggest exports: the one and only David Bustamante. He will be performing his full concert from his latest tour “Amor de los dos”. The audience will be able to enjoy a one-and-a-half-hour show from this 14-sellout tour artist, who has now received over 15 platinum discs and sold more than a million albums in Spain and Latin America.
