About

Albanian Voices is a call to action! Our mission is to preserve Albanian oral tradition before it disappears!

Albania is a Europe's oldest forgotten treasure. Once a powerful ancient Illyrian society, the Albanian people have defended themselves against countless invaders for centuries. In 1991, after more than 50 years of no contact with the outside world due to Enver Hoxha's communist dictatorship, Albania finally began to establish itself in a global and fast-paced society. Albanian history has mostly been passed down to future generations orally: through songs, legends and stories. Our digital story-telling strategy brings a modern twist to old stories and presents Albanians in a positive way. History books are complicated and boring. Keeping alive rumors and Hollywood stereotypes is ignorant. On the other hand, interesting personal narratives presented in a modern way will capture people's attention and finally allow the world to get to know the real Albania.
