Genc Salihu – black and white or in color?

A special Wednesday is ahead – Prishtina based singer-songwriter Genc Salihu promotes his new song “Shtyje“.

“I have been isolated, searching…but finally new songs are coming to surface” he says.

The new material is not the only reason which makes this particular video unique – Genc is also debuting as a writer-director. “I was nervous to be in that role…directing myself and the crew. But it did help a lot being surrounded by people that have worked with me in past projects. They know me and understand my voice”.

Photographs from the set shared on social media earlier this week show Genc hospitalized: “I might be there to heal my soul” he says, ”or maybe it’s just an interpretation of perceived reality in my country…or a love story”.

The video is made in two different versions: black and white, and color. Both of them will be shown in the promotional night – the audience will be asked to vote their favorite version.

The event takes place in dit’ e nat’ at 9PM Wednesday /November 11, 2015/
