Bleona Qereti Video - Scandal

Bleona Qereti videoclip

This is the english version of the original "Hallall e ke".

Nora Istrefi Video - 1000 here

Nora Istrefi video
"1000 here" eng. "1000 times"
Album: "Opium" (July, 2006)
Lyrics by Fatmir Muja
Music by Wirusi

Nora sang this song for the first time on tv as a guest of TopRTK show programme, where she was invited to attend after winning the TopSong title for the month of October 2006. The winning of this title which was accompanied by the release of her new videoclip "E di" marks a new comeback by Nora Istrefi who is proving to her fans that she is persistent in her path to achieving a career success. Her previous clip "Nje djal" did not have the desired boom effect the way it did for example the "Negativ" or "Pse te dua" last year. You have a chance to watch an interview with Nora conducted by the moderators of the TopRTK show programme, Fitore Rexhepi & Erleta Hoti by visiting noraistrefi.blogspot.com. And as usual, your comments are appreciated. Let me guess, the way she dressed on this video, will be one of the subjects for discussion.e.g. flashing boobs and bum (not there yet but nearly there by inches)! We must admit she's got the right stuff though!

Ermal Fejzullahu Video - Goca nga Tirana

Ermal Fejzullahu video - Kenga Magjike 2006
Title: "Goca nga Tirana" eng. "Girl from Tirana"
Music & Text by Ilir Berani
Orchestration by Florent Boshnjaku

Hmm... are you thinking what I am thinking. This could be a winner song.
Do you think Ilir Berani has again "hit the nail on the head" with this song and produced another hit, same as he did at Polifest 2006 with his song "Prape se prape" performed by Gili & Sinan? Leave your opinion about this.

Ermal is a great performer, which adds a cutting edge to the song. I guess he had a good teacher, his father Sabri, a very experienced stage performer, who is a master of expressive and passionate singing.

The next thing you could do is to have a guess, who that girl might be, the one he is singing about...hm... Greta? Don't know really just guessing. Does she really exists? What's your guess?

"M'ka marre malli per nenen time" eng. "I miss my mother"

“Merita Halili raised her radiant soprano in buoyant wedding songs, punctuated by speed-demon accordion from her husband and bandleader, Raif Hyseni.” – The New York Times

"Merita Halili is one of Albania’s top performers, renowned for her stunning voice and her prodigious range and vocal technique. Born in Tirana but now lives in New Jersey USA. Raif Hyseni (Merita's husband and principal accompanist), originally from Kosova, leads the most sought-after Albanian music ensemble in the United States. Together their performances thrill with masterful interpretations of urban Albanian folk songs and instrumentals. National and international performance highlights include engagements at New York’s Symphony Space and London’s famed Barbican Centre." - ctmd.org

"Merita Halili thrills audiences with her masterful rendition of Albanian folk music. Known in her homeland as the “Queen of Albanian folk songs” and highly esteemed for her stunning voice, range and vocal technique, the award-winning vocalist is accompanied by her husband, Raif Hyseni, whose innovations and compositions for accordion have garnered praise for his “speed demon accordion.” With an ensemble that also includes clarinet, guitar, keyboard and percussion, Merita Halili and Raif Hyseni will astound you with their vocal and instrumental artistry." - lawrence.com

In 2000 the President of Albania named her "National Ambassador", which is the highest albanian award for an artist. Today she travels around in USA, Europe and Asia. Some of her best-known performances were featured in the soundtrack for the acclaimed Italian film Lamerica.

Inva Mula Video - Celni Lule

Inva Mula & The Quartet Gaudi video
"Celni lule" eng. "Flowers in blossom"
Live concert in Prishtina, 23rd September 2006
In this concert, she sings traditional albanian folk music.
Of course the classic way.

Inva Mula is an international opera singer and is our albanian pride. She is amongst the few ones with the ability to replace the fame of Nexhmije Pagarusha in the albanian circles. But, Inva went further and conquered the world with her soprano voice. Here is the wikipedia entry on Inva:

Inva Mula (alternative spellings Inva Mula-Çako, Inva Mula-Tchako (born 1963) is an opera singer born in Tirana, Albania. She is perhaps best-known to the American pop culture as the soprano voice behind the Diva in the film The Fifth Element with Bruce Willis (that film credited as Inva Mulla Tchako). She comes from an artistic family and began her opera career at a very early age. In 1987 she won the "Cantante d'Albania" competition in Tirana and in 1988 the George Enescu Competition in Bucharest. In 1992 she won the "Butterfly" Competition in Barcelona outright. She received an award at the first Placido Domingo contest in Paris, 1993. A CD of the event was released. She later performed in various concerts with the famous tenor at the Opéra Bastille, and with Brussels for "Europalia Mexico", in Munich, and in Oslo. In 1996 she performed Luigi Cherubini's opera Médée at Compiègne (it was taped for TV), then she return for Georges Bizet's opera La Jolie fille de Perth (released CD, filmed for TV, released DVD in Japan) in 1998.

Nazif Cela Video - Vasheza nga Vlora

Nazif Cela videoklip/clip
"Vasheza nga Vlora" eng. "Girl from Vlora"

Vlora is a beautiful city in Albania. Of course, with beautiful girls too. By the way, Vlora is the city where albanians proclaimed their independence in 1912. Unfortunately, the great powers draw artificial borders that split the population in half: Albania of today, and the rest of the population were subjugated by neighbouring countries (Serbia, Montenegro, Bulgaria & Greece etc.). But after much struggle for freedom and sufferings endured, kosovars (inhabitants of Kosova, 90% albanians) are expected to gain independence soon and other albanians in Montenegro, FYR of Macedonia and South Serbia (Eastern Kosova, vilayet of Kosova under Ottoman Empire was greater than Kosova of today), are gaining more rights and are becoming a relevant political factor in the region. The Greece is the place where fate of albanians of Cameria looks very grim with no indications by greek government to make any positive movement in that direction.

OK, back to music again. Enjoy the clip!
