"Kthehu loti im" eng. "Come back my tear" ... well it does not sound most appropriately but this is what he actually says. Have you ever called your lover "my tear"... no? Try it and see if anything happens.
I know, you are asking what's this guy real name. The answer is I don't know (perhaps this is his real name). If you know, drop a comment. Thanks!

The band formed in year 2000 in the city of Besiana, initially consisting of 5 members: Sead, Besi, Agron, Valbon and Xili. However, Valbon and Xili left the band for personal reasons and current formation includes only Sead Abdullahu (Seadi), Besim Ejupi (Besi) and Agron Bajgora (Agroni). Their first successful appearance was with the song "Sonte nata do t'jet e jona", music composed by Naim Krasniqi. They sing pop, rnb and hip hop music.
The flashing lights used in this video, are making this video lose quality after compression. I have noticed, whenever there is a flashing light used, videos look terrible on internet. Perhaps, the video producers should take this into account and use less flashing lights, if they wish their videos to look better for internet viewers.

"Harrimi i dashurise" eng. something like "The forgetting of love", "The forgotten love" sounds better.
If I am not wrong, she too might be coming from albanian diaspora, most likely Sweden. In the recent years, we have seen a number of new albanian singers emerging from Scandinavian countries, e.g. Blero, Doruntina Disha (Pop Idol style auditions winner), Lina (1st prize Polifest 2006, RnB genre, clip coming soon), Blerina Osaj (clip coming next) etc. If you know, remind me of some more names coming from Scandinavian countries...

So, what do you think about Babuka's singing. If you've seen him before, tell us if he is better as a drummer or singer?
What is Macchiato?
Macchiato is an Italian word, meaning "marked" or "stained". It is frequently used to refer to two separate coffee drinks.
- Caffè macchiato (also known as Espresso macchiato), an espresso with a tiny dollop of steamed milk on top. This drink is the traditional variation. In the case of caffè macchiato, this means literally "espresso stained/marked with milk."
- Latte macchiato, steamed milk with espresso poured through it. Starbucks has popularized a flavored variant of this drink, known as the Caramel macchiato.

"Luje belin luje" eng. "Do the hip dance"
Album: "Luje belin" (2005)
There is a very interesting story about the vocal of this band, Ferki Shala. The band had a very successful career in the past but something happened after promoting their 10th album in the autumn last year. Ferki abandoned music completely and turned to religion and is now living a life that abides by strict religious rules. That means he changed the way he looks aswell. You can read an interview with Ferki taken by Gazeta Java here.

"Te kam xhan" eng. something like "You are my love" or simply "I love you" or even "I fancy you". "te kam xhan" can have a different meaning depending on who you address this to e.g. relative or a lover. But, it expresses affection towards other person and in the case of couples, most likely an expression of love toward each other. The straightforward expression for stating love towards other person in albanian is "Te dua".
"Te dua si femije" eng. "I love you like a child" (stine is the child one)
Music Festival "Mikrofoni i Arte 2005" eng. "The Golden Microphone"
Won "Best Duo" award with this song.

"Ah Dashni" eng. "My love..."
It is often said, his music is not original (meaning albanian), but some kind of music known as "tallava" (roma music). However, according to some sources, he had the highest CD sales figure in 2005. So, where is the truth? Or better, what is that people are bothered about Meda's way of singing, while at the same time so many people are loving it? Have your say!

Title: "Nena loke"
Album: "Pse me ike" (2006)
In the video, the granny role is played by Nexhmije Pagarusha. The other gentleman, not sure who he is, perhaps someone can help with the name. Interestingly, Nexhmije can be spotted in several recent videoclips and music festivals. She is our albanian prima donna and one should be honored to have her presence.
