Holly & Ken // Concert

One day, at an airport, Holly & Ken met totally by chance. Four years later, she sent him a copy of Maps and Lists. Ken wrote to her and was like, “Your record’s great! What’s next?” Holly was like, “Lots of stuff!’ They played some shows together and then, almost as a dare, he said to her, “Let’s make a country record in France!”.

Holly & Ken, The Record, is an indie country opera, a concept album, an homage to Willie Nelson’s 1975 classic record, Red Headed Stranger.

They will play this material in dit’ e nat’ on Wednesday (January 20th) at 9PM.

Rest in Peace Starman

It was in 2013 after a long break that David Bowie’s “The Next Day” came out. As usual, it was refreshing, rich and self referential. The first single “Where Are We Now” called for the past and especially Bowie’s Berlin years with which innovation, politics, love came naturally to play again. Few months later this comeback inspired a Prishtina tribute to Bowie’s work from various periods which took place at our bookshop at 2013 and was performed by Genc & Arbër Salihu as well as other fellow musicians.
Today as we learn that the Starman has left us we are so happy we once decided to film this performance which signifies everything we’re made of.

Rest in peace Bowie, thank you for visiting.

Enjoy Prishtina’s David Bowie Tribute ♥

Championship of Synths

Ilir Bajri (47) and Liburn Jupolli (27) are Prishtina pianists that belong to two very different generations of musicians but they seem to successfully meet in their musical explorations in many levels; both of them have a background in classical music, jazz, rock ‘n’ roll, experimental music and both of them are in love with minimalism.
This Tuesday (12th of January) at 9PM they will perform as a duo in their favorite instruments – synthesizers!
See you at the championship of synths – it will be hot!
