History - How did the project start... Albmuzika Trust is an project-fund which started its function in 1996, and its main aim is to provide music, musical events and instruments to help the Christian musical education of the people of Albania and to help promote the Albanian culture through the world. Christian Concert of musicians gathered from different churches of Albania.
Dinamo Stadium - Tirana, 1993 Since the country has opened its doors, the churches have had to rely on music translated from other cultures, mainly England and the U.S.A. But the time has come for a country with such a rich cultural background, to have its own voice in the international music scene. This is where Albmuzika will concentrate its work; The fund attempt to provide the Albanians with music that is composed by themselves and to let the rest of the world know of such a tradition and culture! The fund was started as an idea from Ralf GJoni , and backed by The International Church of Tirana , but has in these last years become more recognised by European Organisations in Finland, Holland, UK and the USA which are involved in Christian music.

Changing radio stations can change your life. One afternoon I chanced upon a frequency transmitting music unlike any I’d heard before. West and east were tautly combined in a haunting refrain. From the west came a mandolin-like instrument strumming a languorous rhythm, from the east a melancholic male voice soaring over the guitar. It was as though someone had laid a Muslim call to prayer over a Hungarian dance tune. I had no idea where this music came from, so I rang the station. "We’re Albanians," a man said. He invited me in to meet them. Singer of the Year . Soon after he arrived in 1987, he was working at a plastics factory in Footscray, and saving what he could for his family in Kosovo. He invited me to an Albanian function in Epping, a dinner in honour of a dignitary from the Democratic League of Kosovo. The local ALP candidate and I were the only non-Albanians there. Moving through the crowd, I was asked a lot about my academic connections. Their leaders sought some one to give them access to Melbourne University, believing this would give them political credibility in Australia. They were a hearty crowd. Greetings were accompanied by emphatic handshakes, prolonged eye contact and a shower of cigarettes. After a plate of

    I will present three selected (and anonymised) cases in which I was asked to commenton albanian culture and, in particular, to to explain Albanian traditions
    Return to Abstracts menu Making a Difference?: The anthropologist as 'cultural expert' in legal cases Stephanie Schwandner-Sievers I will present three selected (and anonymised) cases in which I was asked to comment on Albanian culture and, in particular, to "to explain Albanian traditions of violence" in criminal and asylum cases involving Albanians both from Kosovo and Albania in different West-European countries. In one case, 'tradition' was used by the Kosovar Albanian offender to justify homicide and a court requested an anthropological commentary; in another, police used anthropological considerations to track down the culprit of gang murder; in the last, a Kosovo Albanian woman's claim for asylum was rejected, but she was able to launch a promising appeal on the basis of an adjudicator's mistake and the anthropologist's insights. I will use this material to raise the following issues. - Dilemmas of anthropologist, de-constructivist theory in coping with essentialist assumptions and expectations, which may unite both the international officials' and the Albanian clients' ways of thinking.
    - The problem of representing 'traditions', particularly 'traditions of violence' which may be part of cultural continuities, discursive re-constructions, or expressions of the social life of re-inventions.

    to commit suicide after the rape. In albanian culture rape is consideredas shame worse than death. For the VICTIM, of course !
    HIGH CHURCH OFFICIAL FROM VATICAN SPEAKS OUT AGAINST THE “MORNING AFTER” PILLS which are a part of the reproductive kits UN distributes among Albanian women who had been raped by the soldiers of the Yugoslav Army. Vatican objects, worried that the usage of these pills would lead to the pregnancy termination. Vatican claims that there is a distinction between “the violence that the victims were subjected to and the fact that a new human being has been conceived”. Such Christian (un)concern for the raped women is almost understandable, (although unacceptable), when one remembers that it comes from the men who have sworn to celibacy, have no personal knowledge or experience of parenthood or husbandry, and no possibility to know how a raped victim feels like even if she doesn't get pregnant. These men, who live in the sanctity of their untouchable and secure homes, debating mostly about what others should or shouldn't do, feel they have right to give lessons to people belonging to another culture and belief system. It is strange how little of Christian compassion has been shown for the victims of brutal violence. Are the Church officials interested at all in the suffering of the raped women?

    KOSOVO: BURNED BOOKS AND BLASTED SHRINES Interview by Cynthia Guttman, UNESCO Courier journalist.
    The ruins of the kulla of Jashar Pasha, burned in May 1999 by Serbs.
    You spent three weeks in Kosovo in October 1999 documenting damage to cultural heritage. What were your main findings?
    Kosovo’s 600-year-old Islamic heritage suffered large-scale devastation during the “ethnic cleansing” operations. More than one third of the region’s 600 mosques were destroyed or seriously damaged. A standard technique was to pack the base of the minaret with explosives so that the stone spire would collapse onto the building and smash the dome. We found racist anti-Albanian and anti-Islamic grafitti inside, Korans with pages ripped out and smeared with feces, and crosses carved into the mosques’ mihrabs [prayer niche]. Valuable collections of Islamic manuscripts were burned. The 500-year-old mosque and historic centre of Vucitrn was set afire and completely bulldozed by Serb paramilitaries. Of Kosovo’s four well-preserved Ottoman-era urban centres, only one, Prizren, escaped such devastation.
    The other great loss are the kullas —stone mansions typical of Albanian residential architecture. They tended to belong to the more prominent Albanian families and had been in the same hands for 150-200 years. As such they were filled with artifacts and documents and were regarded as symbols of Albanian culture in Kosovo. Barely ten per cent of the region’s 500 kullas survived the war. All this demonstrates that the damage was clearly not collateral. It was very intentional.

    APPEALS AND STATEMENTS PUBLICATIONS PROJECTS AND ACTIVITIES ... OTHER APPEALS AND STATEMENTS OF THE AHC A New Case of Violence by the Macedonian Police The AHC turns back once more to the remarks formulated to the address of the Macedonian police regarding its brutal behavior at the damage of Albanian citizens travelling to Macedonia in a legal way. The AHC received a visit by Mr. Xhevair Spahiu, a well-known poet who is at the same time member of the Board of this Committee, to bring to its knowledge the complaint of a group of personalities of culture who went to Tetovo to take part in a cultural activity dedicated to the national poet Naim Frasheri, one of the leaders one of the Albanian Renaissance of XIX century. These distinguished representatives of the Albanian culture were kept by the policy in the vicinity of Kertchovo, where they were maintained for several hours and submitted to a real interrogation. The Albanian writers called this act as "an arrest of the Albanian language". The AHC has got its own experience with the Macedonian police, when its representatives have been kept at the border for the simple reason that they have brought books in Albanian, which were even sequestered. This Committee has received more than one evidence of this brutal behavior. The latest case is all the more serious that this violence is still continuing when a new atmosphere could be expected in the Macedonian-Albanian relations in Macedonia itself after the signature of the Ohrid agreement, providing for a new regulation of the coexistence between the majority and the minorities, the Albanian population reaching almost one third of the whole population of this Republic. The same was to be expected towards Albanian citizens going there and bringing with them messages of peace and good cooperation.

    History of Azeri nation has deep roots and begins from the earliest times, when tribes, speaking different languages, lived in the territory of Eastern Transcaucasia and Northern Iran. The Kura river was separating our ancestors into 2 major groups: Albanian speaking and Persian speaking. With rise and fall of great empires of Ancient and Middle Ages inflamed streams of Persians, Arabs, Mongols, and finally Turks filled this area. Certainly, original Albanian culture could not resist such a powerful influence of so many different civilizations. Having accepted and inherited various cultural values, including such fundamental values as religion, music, and most important, language, the Azerbaijani nation was formed on the basis of its original culture. The most basic identifying sign and value of every historically formed nation is its language. Unlike other cultural values, language is perceived and actively employed by every member of national society. The Azerbaijani language is related to the Turkic group of languages and it is a part of Turkic language belt from Bosporus to Uygurstan (Sinkiang). During long centuries of Turkic conquests solitary Turkic language was established in all this vast territory. In the process of settlement and dynamic interaction with the local languages and culture the original Turkic language suffered inevitable transformation in different regions. In accordance with certain peculiarities of local languages, culture, and level of interaction, the Turkic language acquired specific features, it became melodic in Azerbaijan (including contemporary Northern Iran), European in Turkey, etc. As the result of this acclimatization the solitary Turkic language transformed into a group of languages with each having its specific features.
