  • The Music of Albania (Albanian: Muzika Shqiptare) is associated with the country of Albania and Albanian communities. Music has a long tradition in the country and is known for its regional diversity, from the Ghegs in the North to the Tosks in the South. It is an integral part of the national identity, strongly influenced by the country's long and turbulent history, which forced Albanians to protect their culture from their overlords by living in rural and remote mountains. Diverse Albanian folk music includes monophonic and polyphonic styles, responses, choral, instrumental and vocal music. Each region has a unique musical tradition that reflects its history, language and culture. Polyphonic singing and song forms are primarily found in South Albania, while in the North they are predominantly monophonic. Albanian iso-polyphony has been declared an UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. The Gjirokastër National Folklore Festival, held every five years in Gjirokastër, is an important venue exhibiting traditional Albanian music. Albanian music extends to ancient Illyria and Ancient Greece, with influences from the Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman Empire. It is evident in archeological findings such as arenas, odeons, theatre buildings and amphitheatres, all over Albania. The remains of temples, libraries, sculptures and paintings of ancient dancers, singers and musical instruments, have been found in territories inhabited by the ancient Illyrians and ancient Greeks. Church singing was performed throughout early Middle Ages in Albania by choirs or soloists in ecclesiastical centers such as Berat, Durrës and Shkodër. The Middle Ages in Albania included choral music and traditional music. Shën Jan Kukuzeli, a singer, composer and musical innovator of Albanian origin, is one of the earliest known musicians. Internationally renowned contemporary musicians of Albanian origin from Albania and Albanian diaspora include Action Bronson, Elvana Gjata, Ava Max, Bebe Rexha, Dua Lipa, Era Istrefi, Albert Stanaj, Dafina Zeqiri, Eleni Foureira, Gashi, Ermal Meta, Enca, Elhaida Dani, Noizy, Unikkatil, and Rita Ora. In the field of classical music, several Albanian sopranos and tenors have gained international recognition including Rame Lahaj, Inva Mula, Marie Kraja, Saimir Pirgu and Ermonela Jaho, and the composer Vasil Tole a member of the Academy of Sciences of Albania (en)
  • La música albanesa (en albanés: Muzikë popullore or Muzikë shqiptare) es la música propia compuesta en Albania o por albaneses. La música albanesa muestra una gran variedad de influencias. Las tradiciones de la música tradicional varían según la región, con importantes diferencias de estilo entre la música tradicional de los en el norte y en el sur . Desde la década de 1920, algunos compositores como Fan S. Noli también han producido obras de música clásica albanesa. Uno de los lugares más importantes que presentan la música tradicional albanesa es el Festival Nacional de Folklore de Gjirokastra, que celebra cada cinco años en Gjirokastra, el sur de Albania. (es)
  • La musica albanese ha origini antiche, infatti veniva tramandata da padre in figlio solo per tradizione orale cioè non vi erano spartiti dai quali i giovani potevano attingere per la formazione musicale. Ci sono vari tipi di generi musicali, che mostrano le numerose influenze; la musica tradizionale del folklore si differenzia rispetto alle regione con maggiori differenze stilistiche tra le musiche dei Gheg nel nord e i Toschi nel sud. La musica "popolare" cittadina si è sviluppata intorno alle città di Korça, Shkodra e Tirana. Uno dei festival più importanti per l'esibizione di musica tradizionale Albanese è il Festival Nazionale del Folclore di Argirocastra che si tiene ogni 5 anni. Dal 1920 è nata la musica classica albanese. Importante spazio hanno anche le kënge të lehta cioè canzoni leggere.Attualmente il genere musicale che sta riscuotendo molto successo in Albania è quello del rap. (it)
  • Албанская музыка (алб. Muzikë Shqiptare) имеет истоки, уходящие в глубокую древность и характеризуется большим разнообразием местных музыкальных стилей, народные песни и инструментальная музыка северных областей страны заметно отличаются от музыки центральных и южных районов. (ru)
  • Precis som den albanska litteraturen, handlar den albanska folkmusiken inte sällan om teman såsom ära, lojalitet och mod. De mest typiska stilarna på sångerna går från heroiska sånger från bergen till den mer komplexa formen, kallad Lieder (en sorts ballad), som är ackompanjerad av olika instrument, och är vanlig i södra Albanien. Det vanligaste, mest förekommande musikinstrumentet i Albanien är lutan eller "lahute", som den kallas, och liknar mycket den slaviska "guslen". Även söderut spelar så kallade "saze", som är små orkestrar, som byggs upp av fyra eller fem instrument, och dessa orkestrar spelar vid speciella tillfällen och högtider. Folkmusiker att nämna här från 1900-talet inkluderar Tefta Tashko, och . Två av de mest framstående kompositörerna inom albansk folkmusik är samt författaren, biskopen och även politiske ledaren Fan Noli. Traditionell dans är fortfarande mycket utbredd, speciellt i avlägsna byar. (sv)
  • Албанська музика (алб. Muzikë popullore або Muzikë Shqiptare) має витоки, що йдуть у глибоку старовину і характеризується великою різноманітністю місцевих музичних стилів, народні пісні та інструментальна музика північних областей країни помітно відрізняються від музики центральних і південних районів.
