Kaya

Priscilla Psailia, also known as Kaya, is a singer, songwriter and one of Malta’s most sought after vocal coaches. She started her singing career at the age of 14, when she was chosen as a resident singer on Maltese television. Two years later, she took part in Malta Song for Europe 2000 with the song “Our Love”. Despite being a newcomer, she finished in third place overall.

Shortly after her Malta Song for Europe participation, Kaya represented Malta in the Steua De Mare Festival Callatis, Romania. The International jury voted her “The Best Foreign Singer”. She went on to participate in Konkors Kanzunetta Indipendenza four times, winning in 2007 with her own composition “Dan Hu L-Mument”.

Renowned for her singing and composing capabilities, Kaya was encouraged to form a singing school, SingerStage Academy. She has also formed a choir which is very much in demand in Malta. Recently she has started producing a TV programme for her students “Kidz Tv” which is aired every Saturday on a new local station FAMILY TV.

Malta at the Eurovision Song Contest

Malta debuted in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1971 and was represented by Joe Grech and the song “Marija L-Maltija”, which finished last. Malta competed again in 1972 and 1975 but then withdrew until their return in 1991. During the 1990s Malta only once finished outside of the top 10, and in 1998 they came within just 7 points of victory. It was Chiara who brought the country their 3rd place finish in 1998, and who went on to finish in 2nd at the 2005 contest in Kyiv. The only other artist to finish 2nd for Malta is Ira Losco, who was 12 points away from victory in 2002. They are the longest participating country never to have won the Eurovision Song Contest.
