    Actually it turned out many of them are from Kosova... Adelina Ismajli too.But I still consider them "albanian singers" becuz they sing in Albanian
    I have ho idea of gheg but I really heard in Kosova they speak some another Albanian :S

    ahaha yes, of course they are still equally as Albanian as any other Albanians, there is Albanians everywhere, Montenegro , Macedonia, Greece, Italy, they might have different accents, but they are still 'Albanians' : )

    also there is many good singers from kosove genta ismaili, adelina ismajli, zanfina ismajli, ermal fejzullahu, sabri fejzullahu, ilir shaqiri, nora istrefi, leonora jakupi (probably the better known Albanian singers )

    now that i think of it, the most famous Albanian singers are probably from kosova and macedonia (shpat kasapi, adrian gaxha etc.) than actual albania

    Shpat Kasapi is from Mcd too? wow
    But I think Elvana Gjata is from Albania? She has great songs btw^^
    I heard some of Adelina's songs but she isn't among my favourites.She's too orientalitic, her songs remind Turkish... maybe because of that she's muslim.

    lol well predominately Albanians are Muslims, but religion has nothing to do with the type of music. The 'oriental' style is used among many Albanian singers, you hear it more with traditional music, because similar instruments are used such as the flute, string instruments etc. However, artists such as Elvana Gjata, who sing pop songs, try to imitate music from Western Europe and the United States and Canada, so i do not really consider this 'ethnic Albanian music' either since the beat, the style, the rhythm is westernized, it's just that they are singing in Albanian : )

    I think some Albanians are christians too.I have on facebook-friends an Albanian girl and she's a christian-orthodox like we Bulgarians.
    I generally listen to folk music too but not too"folk" mostly pop-folk So that's why for me Elvana Gjata,Adrian Gaxha,Mirsa Kerqeli and Olta Boka are the best ones from Albania.

    could someone please translate this song? i know it's korab shaqiri again, but i kinda like his songs :P and i finally found the song on the internet

    Korab Shaqiri - Ku kam gabuar

    sonte ti qesh a qan per mue
    qastet nuk mundem me i harru
    mos mendo
    lotin nga faqet flekeroje te kam shpirt
    ne qiellin m`ndogji shtrengoi nga stuhit
    tek ty do t`vij.
    sonte lotin ta pres me buz
    veq nje pik ne grusht ne zemer rum
    dhe ne shi me lag se un digjem
    si zjarr si diell ne mbremje kur perendon

    ndoshta neser kur s`me ke
    do t`menosh se sa kam vler
    kur s`te shoh s`jam me ty
    dashuria nuk mbaron aty
    ku kam gabuar nuk e di
    zemra jote qesh e qan
    shum sekrete brenda mban
    qka na mbeti e pa then
    nga e shtrejta dashuria jon
    kjo zemra jote s`kishte qar

    sonte ti qesh a qan per mue
    qastet nuk mundem me i harru
    mos mendo
    lotin nga faqet flekeroje te kam shpirt
    ne qiellin m`ndogji shtrengoi nga stuhit
    tek ty do t`vij.
    sonte lotin ta pres me buz
    veq nje pik ne grusht ne zemer rum
    dhe ne shi me lag se un digjem
    si zjarr si diell ne mbremje kur perendon

    ndoshta neser kur s`me ke
    do t`menosh se sa kam vler
    kur s`te shoh s`jam me ty
    dashuria nuk mbaron aty
    ku kam gabuar nuk e di
    zemra jote qesh e qan
    shum sekrete brenda mban
    qka na mbeti e pa then
    nga e shtrejta dashuria jon
    kjo zemra jote s`kishte qar

    zemra jote qesh e qan
    shum sekrete brenda mban
    qka na mbeti e pa then
    nga e shtrejta dashuria jon
    kjo zemra jote s`kishte qar.

    Korab Shaqiri - Ku kam gabuar/ where did i go wrong

    sonte ti qesh a qan per mue/ tonight, are you smiling or crying because of me
    qastet nuk mundem me i harru/ i cannot forget the moments
    mos mendo/ don't think
    lotin nga faqet flekeroje te kam shpirt/ the tears from your cheeks ?flekeroje?, you are my soul
    ne qiellin m`ndogji shtrengoi nga stuhit/ in the sky it burned me, i hold on from the ?stuhit?
    tek ty do t`vij./ i will come to you
    sonte lotin ta pres me buz/ tonight i await your tears with my lips
    veq nje pik ne grusht ne zemer rum/ only a drop in a fist, in a heart ?rum?
    dhe ne shi me lag se un digjem/ and it wets me with the rain 'cause i am burning
    si zjarr si diell ne mbremje kur perendon/ like a fire, like the sun, in the night when the sun sets

    ndoshta neser kur s`me ke/ perhaps tomorrow when you don't have me
    do t`menosh se sa kam vler/ you will realize/wonder how much i meant/ was worth
    kur s`te shoh s`jam me ty/ when i don't see you, when i'm not with you
    dashuria nuk mbaron aty/ love doesn't end there
    ku kam gabuar nuk e di/ where did i go wrong, i do not know
    zemra jote qesh e qan/ your heart smiles and cries
    shum sekrete brenda mban/ you keep many secrets inside
    qka na mbeti e pa then/ what has been left unsaid
    nga e shtrejta dashuria jon/ from our expensive (highly valued) love
    kjo zemra jote s`kishte qar/ this heart of yours hadn't cried

    Vae Zela - E lumtur t dua

    ... natyra n'fshatin tone,
    lule bliri kundermon,
    syte e njome c'po shikojne
    larg n'oborrin tone.
    valle me shohin ara gruri
    stine e ... pranveror
    ndjejne flladin qe ndrin murin,
    flladin nuseror

    si gonxhe, e bardhe si bora perhere,
    si rreze dielli pranvere, u rritsh pa lot x2

    Hmm I think this lyric is only half here But I couldn't find it anywhere else.Some help?

    Very old and popular Albanian song : )

    E Lumtur Te Dua - I love you happily

    hesht natyra n'fshatin tone,/ nature is quiet in our village
    lule bliri kundermon, / the linden flower ?kundermon?
    syte e njome c'po shikojne/ what are these wet eyes seeing
    larg n'oborrin tone. / far away on our yard
    valle me shohin ara gruri/ maybe they are seeing fields of wheat
    stine e bukur pranveror/ the beautiful season of spring
    ndjejne flladin qe ndrin murin,/ they are feeling the breeze
    flladin nuseror/

    si gonxhe, e bardhe si bora perhere,/ like a bud, always white like the snow
    si rreze dielli pranvere, u rritsh pa lot x2/ like rays of the spring sun, i hope you grow up without any tears

    te gezuare, embel si mjalt trendeline,/ they are happy, sweet like the trigonella (flower)
    ne fusha krah gjeraqine/

    degjoje kengen e nenes,/ listen to the song of your mother
    qe te don fort/ who loves you very much

    some lines i didn't translate it's very difficult to translate, these types of songs, they meaning gets lost, so i left some lines because i didn't know how to phrase them

    Korcare19, thank you!

    btw, I've found the word sundoj in dictionary, it means to rule. So sundojme = we rule?

    Poni - Naten O Vetem O

    Naten ere se madhe
    naten o vetem o
    te prita mike pse se erdhe
    naten o vetem o(X2)

    Naten o vetem o
    xhan bandill te keqen o(X4)

    S'erdhe vet apo ste lane

    these songs are so difficult to translate, but so good : )

    Poni - Naten O Vetem O/ oh at night, oh i'm alone

    Naten ere se madhe/ at night the wind is large
    naten o vetem o/ oh at night, oh i'm alone
    te prita mike pse se erdhe/ i waited for you my dear/friend, why didn't you come?
    naten o vetem o(X2)/ oh at night, oh alone

    Naten o vetem o/ oh at night, oh alone
    xhan bandill te keqen o(X4)/ my dear (let me) the suiter, take the bad away from you
    S'erdhe vet apo ste lane/ you didn't come (yourself)? or they didn't let you come?
    naten o vetem o/ oh at night, oh alone
    s'me la nena me babane/ my mother and father didn't let me come
    naten o vetem o/ oh at night, oh alone

    s'me kalon serbes serbes/ you don't pass freely
    naten o vetem o/ oh at night, oh on your own
    ja do te marr moj/ i will either take you to be mine
    ja do te vdes/ or i will die
    naten o vetem/ oh at night, oh alone

    Naten o vetem o/ oh at night, oh alone
    xhan bandill te keqen o/ let I the suitor take the bad away from you

    it's hard to translate 'te keqen', but say someone loves you a lot they may say 'ta mar te keqen', which means like 'let me take the bad away from you (because they love you so much), something like this

    bandil: is a word commonly used in folk songs meaning like the suiter or person who has fallen for the girl

    serbes(serbest): means to go easily and freely or 'go as you please'
