Ne kadar suredir oldugunu bilmiyorum ama cok cok uzun suredir Malta’da her sehrin / her ilcenin kendisine ozel festivali var. Maltaca adina “festa” diyorlar. Mayis ayinda baslar, Eylul ayinin sonlarina kadar hemen hemen her haftasonu devam eder.

Festival denilince benim aklima cimlere yatmis gencler, iki farkli sahnede iki farkli muzik calinan bir ortam geldigi icin, bahsettigim Malta festivallerinin cimlere uzanan genclerin festivaliyle alakasi olmadigini belirtmek isterim oncelikle.

Malta’daki festivaller daha cok dini festivaller ve hemen hemen hepsi kiliselerin onune toplanan insanlarin coskulu sekilde slogan atmalariyla baslar. Konu pek fazla ilgi alanima giremedigi icin kilisenin onunde bekleyen kalabaligin ne yaptigini ve kiliseden cikardiklari Meryem Ana / Hz. Isa heykellerine bakarak neden slogan attiklarini hic bilmiyorum.

Malta’ya ilk geldigim yil Floriana’da yasiyordum ve bu bahsettigim festival sirasinda yasadigim evin onunden uzun bir insan konvoyu geciyordu. Colugu cocugu, genci yaslisi bir ellerinde bayrak bir ellerinde su (hava cok sicak oldugundan) Floriana’nin sokaklarini tek tek ziyaret ederlerdi.

Dedigim gibi konu ilgi alanima girmediginden festival sirasinda yaptiklari ve geleneksel olan seylerin ne anlama geldigini bilmiyorum. Isin kotusu, etrafimdaki Maltali arkadaslarimin buyuk cogunlugu bu festivallerden hoslanmadigi icin sordugum sorulara da cevap alamiyorum.

Benim etrafimdaki insanlar sevmiyor ama ada halkinin buyuk cogunlugu yil boyunca festival gununu iple cekiyor. Ozellik buyuk bir grup insan bu festivalleri cok seviyorlar ve hemen hemen her sehrin festivaline aksatmadan gidiyorlar.

Asagida 2015 yazi boyunca hangi tarihlerde hangi sehirde festival yapilacaginin listesi var. Siz bu yaziyi bu tarihlerden sonra okusaniz bile dert etmeyin, festivaller hemen hemen her sene ayni tarihlerde yapiliyor.
