Do Albanians know that their anthem was inspired by the Romanians? The current anthem was composed by the Romanian composer Ciprian Porumbescu(1853-1883), and is known in Romania as Pe-al nostru steag.

@Bass

This Georgian group "Northen Harmony" nailed it. Even their accent is almost perfect.


@Aorta

Of cours they know it. If you serach for the anthem, in Albanian, you will find that Himni Kombëtar ishte një marsh rumun kompozuar nga Ciprian Porumbescu, ndërsa autor i tekstit ishte Rilindasi Asdreni (The music of the anthem was composed by the Romanian composer Ciprian Porumbescu.The words were written by the Albanian poet  Asdreni).

There are two versions of the anthem, a long and a short one (the original poem has three more stanzas that are not part of the anthem). Usually, the short version is the one officially used.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LFwjtFBi60A

The original title of the poem was Betimi mi flamur. It was later printed in a volume of poems by Asdreni titled Ëndra e lotë (in English: Dreams and tears), which was published in Bucharest.


This is the original poem (translated by Robert Elsie):

Around our flag we are united,
With but one will and one desire,
A sacred oath are now proclaiming
For our salvation to aspire,
May only those avoid the struggle,
Those who are traitors to our laws,
Undaunted is a hero through and through,
He dies a martyr to the cause.

With weapons in our hands a-brandished,
We will defend our fatherland,
Our sacred rights we’ll not relinquish,
The foe has no place in our land,
For God has told the world, proclaiming:
The nations of the earth shall wane,
And yet will live, will thrive Albania.
For her our fight won’t be in vain.

Our flag, our nation’s sacred symbol,
We swear an oath to your fair name,
Defend our country, our Albania,
Protect her honour and her fame,
Our praise goes to those mighty heroes
Who in our nation’s past did fall,
Their memory will be cherished evermore,
In life and death will they live all.

Too many examples to digest there..... Bardh....I would say also stick to traditional as they are more interesting for non Albanians to watch and enjoy.

This folk song it's about the Albanian mythologic creature zana e malit ( fairy of the mountain in English).

Every mountain was said to have its own zana, who appeared as a fair maiden found bathing naked in mountain streams. The zana is believed to be extremely courageous, a formidable opponent, who can bestow her protection on warriors. Albanians even have an expression ai ishte trim si zana, meaning, he was as brave as a fairy, this is used to refer to very courageous individuals. They have another expression, a curse expression actually, te shitoft zana (may fairy bewitch you in English).

In this song two brother were bewitched by a beautiful fairy and they killed each other for her.

This last song it's one of my favourite folk song. It's about a girl mourning her dead lover. I love especially the last part of the song, literally:

Do you remember Besen, that you have given me?
When i recognize your voice, you had told me, i'll get on my feet, even if i am dead.


(Besa is a cultural precept, usually translated as faith, that means to keep the promise. The man of Besa connotes a man of respect and honour, someone to whom you can trust your life)
