Did I state that Ora wasn't born in Kosovo?

One - Bleta Rexha born in Brooklyn, New York
One - Dua Lipa born in London, England

Re: The Kosovan music revolution!

I don't know how much you know Albanian reality, but they are true Albanians easily even in 3rd generation born abroad and they like to marry only with themselves. They are very serious about their heritage. And all these successful in UK or USA are obliged to send money to like 200 relatives in Albania and Kosovo and they do it.

Most specific culture I've ever encountered. You'd be surprised how many treat seriously their national codes from 12th century or something. Including these who were born abroad.

Trashy as it gets. With Dua Lipa being an exception.

on a side note, they all do very trashy music and if they can make it big, I assume some from Serbia is capable as well

I'm not making any statements about, nor TBH do I care, how much they value their heritage. No matter who you are unless you're totally isolated, growing up in NY or London is a very different thing than growing up in Kosovo.

That sorted, I am going to check out their music as yeah I'm sure it does have some influences of their heritage.

It is, but you don't know anything about the Albanian mentality. Some things never change wherever one lives, you know.

Perhaps. I don't agree but let's let not argue. I'll check out their music.

It doesn't. It's generic stuff that could have been made by anyone.
If you're into a more traditional sound, this is what you're looking for. I think I posted it before, but this gem should never be forgotten!

Re: The Kosovan music revolution!

Enough of this kosovo music revolution i see no whitney or mariah carey or michael jackson prodigy....all i hear about from there is bad stuff.....these people were obviously trained in proper countries with proper teeachers and typical music production like Joana said this has nothing to do with traditional albanian folk so there is no revolution and i do not think there ever will be.....but grats to some of these chicks i dig dua lupas song be the one......the rest arent interesting to set them apart from any generic singer and song out thetree

Good luck to the Aussie and Balkan girls!

Re: The Kosovan music revolution!

Yes of course these all sound like typical UK / USA songs in a modern fashion, I think the OP just meant that suddenly girls with Albanian (Kosovar particularly) heritage became noticed in music industry And not that folk music suddenly became a worldwide factor (I don't think any folk ever will be again after the US 1960s music, hope I'm wrong, but it's naive to expect otherwise )

Maybe after Rita Ora's breakthrough it was easier also for the others, I don't follow their careers much as it's not my favourite music, what I know is that Albanians like to help each other.

As for the argument that they were raised in UK / US society, well, that's globalization for you, in Poland these days we have exactly the same music as they have in Kosovo, as they have in London or NYC or Stockholm... My best friend ever is Albanian. He has an account on TF as well, just not too active these days. I met him many many years ago and it turned out he was a big fan of Radiohead, Mercury Rev, Slowdive, traveled to indie rock festivals etc. (I don't really know what I was imagining, but I could be ashamed of stereotypes I probably had in my head before talking to him then) Yeah Albania is an undiscovered piece of Europe and very specific, but it's not like they live under a rock there, young people can do exactly same things as people in Western Europe or US Up to the level where your family and tradition controls you, but Albanian families and customs control you same way even if you were born outside of Albania - in UK, US, Italy, Germany

Thank you! A lot of people don't even know much about Albania,Kosovo etc and yet here they are talking about 'our' traditions and stuff It's like me talking about another country's traditions without even knowing their historical background.

You're kinda spamming the thread, since the thread wasn't opened to let people know about Kosovo's music. I'd need a whole different thread for that, cause Kosovo's music is by far the best in the region.

I opened this thread to underline the success that young Albanian artists especially from Kosovo are enjoying in the international sphere.

If you're talking about Serbian songs I have to agree with you.
