Fr Karm Debattista mssp
is a member of the Missionary Society of St Paul. He composes and sings
songs in Maltese and English. Believing that music is the best medium to proclaim the message of
God, he composes songs to evangelize. His songs are essentially biblical with special
attention to the missionary or evangelical aspect of the Church. The style of the
music varies from pop, soft rock, dance and ballads to classical and a cappella. His
experience in missionary countries like Pakistan and Perù has its influence on some
of the songs, particularly on the most popular title track of his first album Fittixtek and
Ħolma from his third album.

official songs for particular events.
