Baglioni in Maltese

This blew my mind. Somebody posted on Facebook a recording of Italian singer/songwriter Claudio Baglioni (household name in Italy, check out his bio) singing a Maltese song L’Ahhar Bidwi F’Wied il-Ghasel (lit. translated as The Last Farmer in Honey Valley).  Enjoy:

For a well-known (in his country at least) singer to take the effort to learn the phonetics and pronunciation of such a different language just for the song, is remarkable.  It’s quite a leap, we’re not talking Italian singing in Spanish.

Compare it to the original version sung in Maltese, with the added benefit of some local landscape visuals:
