The music of the Albanian duo is an electronic reinterpretation of the traditional music of their hometown – Shkoder. Shkodra Elektronike is based in Italy. The duo of accomplished keyboard player and producer Kole Laca and singer Beatriçe Gjergji. Their first EP features four traditional Albanian songs, rearranged in a contemporary key and performed live on an old soundstage in Tirana’s suburbs. The location reminds me of the dark times of the dictatorship, the stagnation it left behind, and the constant need of Albanian people to evolve and to stay away from indifference.
