    FOLKLORE
     Contributing Editor: Toni Sant

    Like all other countries with a long tradition of interaction among people, Malta has a rich element of folk life. Some Maltese traditions are closely related to Catholic Mediterranean folklore, however, there are several aspects which work either independently from organized religion, and sometimes even counter to the religious beliefs. The folk music and singing tradition of Malta is a good example of Maltese Folklore not associated with Christianity. There have been various attempts to capture folk life in publications and museums, but as any modern folklorist will tell you, folklore is best preserved in living traditions.
