“Ninni la tibikix iżjed, ninni Ġesù Bambin”, how many times have we heard this Christmas Carol, which is also a lullaby? Ninni is the word Maltese parents use with babies and toddlers when it is time for them to sleep.

In fact, this word is etymologically derived from the Italian word ninnare, which means “to lull a baby to sleep”. In this case, Ninni, ninni is a multi-disciplinary project that amalgamates the world of jazz and animation into one, by exploring lullabies from around the world. While Ninni’s mother sings him to sleep to calm him down, he dreams of going into a journey to finding a new home to rest in. Through his journey, this baby polar bear will be discovering several lullabies from around the world, which will be interpreted by a live jazz quartet.

Kemm il-darba smajna l-għanja tal-Milied, “Ninni la tibikix iżjed, ninni Ġesù Bambin”. Din hija propju għanja biex traqqad lit-tfal. Il-kelma Ninni hija il-kelma Maltija għal meta jsir ħin l-irqad għat-tfal. Ġejja mit-Taljan fejn il-kelma ‘ninnare’ għanda propju din it-tifsira; tpoġġi lit-tfal biex jorqdu.

F’dan il-każ Ninni,ninni huwa proġett multi-dixxiplinarju li jgħaqqad flimkien id-dinja tal-Jazz mad-dinja tal-animazzjoni. Permezz ta’ dawn id-dixxiplini se niskopru għanjiet tal-irqad differenti minn madwar id-dinja. Iċ-ċkejken Ninni joħlom waqt li ommu, Ors Polari, tkantalu biex jorqod. Fil-ħolma Ninni jdur id-dinja u jiskopri l-għanjiet tal-irqad minn madwar id-dinja. Il-mużika kollha hija interpretata live minn kwartettJazz.
