In 1444, he initiated and organized the League of Lezhë, which proclaimed him Chief of the League of the Albanian people, and defended the region of Albania against the Ottoman Empire for more than two decades. Skanderbeg's military skills presented a major obstacle to Ottoman expansion, and he was considered by many in western Europe to be a model of Christian resistance against the Ottoman Muslims. 1:10 Queen Teuta was an Illyrian queen of the Ardiaei tribe who reigned approximately from 231 BC to 227 BC. Despite her ongoing acts of piracy, she is revered for her resistance and free will against her persecutors. 3:32 Ali Pasha of Tepelena or of Yannina, surnamed Aslan, "the Lion", or the "Lion of Yannina", (1740 - 24 January 1822) was an Ottoman Albanian ruler of the western part of Rumelia, the Ottoman Empire's European territory which was also called Pashalik of Yanina. 3:47 Shote Galica (1895 - 1927) was a warrior of çeta (guerrilla group, from the word Centuriae, military formation) of the Albanian insurgent national liberation with the goal of unification of all Albanian territories, and supporting a democratic national government in Albania.

He is widely regarded as the national poet of Albania. 4:45 Çerçiz Topulli (1880 - 15 July 1915) was a patriotic nationalist figure and guerrilla fighter. He was known for fighting the Turks in 1907 and 1908 and then, after the Turks left, the Greeks, who invaded in 1913 and 1914. 5:02 Hasan Prishtina originally known as Hasan Berisha (born 1873 in Vıçıtırın, Kosovo Province, Ottoman Empire – died 1933 in Thessaloniki, Greece) was an Albanian politician, who served as Prime Minister of Albania in December 1921. 5:12 Isa Boletini (January 15, 1864 – January 23, 1916) was an Albanian nationalist figure and guerilla fighter, born in the village of Boletin near Mitroviça, Ottoman Empire. He was a freedom fighter in Kosovo and became a major figure of Albanian resistance against the Ottomans, Serbia and Montenegro. 5:36 Theofan Stilian Noli, better known as Fan Noli (January 6, 1882 – March 13, 1965) was an Albanian-American writer, scholar, diplomat, politician, historian, orator, and founder of the Albanian Orthodox Church, who served as prime minister and regent of Albania in 1924 during the June Revolution. 5:44 Gjergj Fishta (October 23, 1871 – December 30, 1940) was an Albanian Franciscan friar, poet, rilindas, and a translator.

Gjergj Fishta was the first Albanian candidate for the The Nobel Prize in Literature. 5:54 Adem Jashari (28 November 1955 – 7 March 1998) is considered to be one of the chief architects of the Kosovo Liberation Army. Jashari was a chief commander in the Drenica operation zone of the KLA. 5:57 Ibrahim Rugova (2 December 1944 – 21 January 2006) was the first President of Kosovo, serving from 1992 to 2000 and again from 2002 to 2006, and a prominent Kosovo Albanian political leader, scholar, and writer.

    My blood

    why don't you love me??
    why don’t i love you??
    (when) we have grown up together
    there's so few of us
    and we suffer so much
    yet we are of one blood

    issues that are not insured
    that ruin your trust
    take a step and a see
    we can't find a proper path

    you have to hold on in this world
    Hit me trample me take out your anger
    i am of your blood, look and see
    no one (truly) loves you as much as i do
    turn your trust to me again

    we lie to ourselves these days
    we bow our heads
    you and i
    we have lost our senses

    Music from Kosovo

    In post-war Kosova, apart from all the socio-economical problems that resulted from the conflict, the issue of the missing persons still touches the lives of many families. The fate of thousands of people still remains unknown. Reflecting this issue, Koperativa designed and produced Eliza Hoxhas music video, featuring short stories of nostalgia, vanishing memories and loneliness. Using different layers of expression such as typographic design, video and photography, the video tackles the issue in a rather more poetic way, setting the viewer on an emotional state and raising awareness about the issue of missing persons.

    Music from Albania

    Oh Arberi
    (During the Middle Ages, the Albanians called their country Arbëri or Arbëni and referred to themselves as Arbëresh or Arbnesh)

    At the shore seagulls speed flying
    like our song full of yearn
    we sing with love from afar
    oh Arberia

    Our ancestors left you in sorrow
    how long gone without seeing you
    but today you are like a flower
    oh Albania

    Waves of the sea foam full of eddies
    together with friends at the shore we came
    for how much yearn we have, the sea has no waves
    oh you Beautiful Arberia
    we gaze from afar and on you contemplate
    oh Beautiful Albania

    The branches dance, you a root farther apart
    among the waves of storms
    so many years forlorn
    but your branches never withering
    oh Arberia

    This song of ours, for you always
    haunts us like a fire at the bosom
    at your hearth we are forever
    oh Albania

    Music from Macedonia

    From the poetry of Naim Frasheri (1846-1900)

    The Words of the Candle

    Here among you have I risen,
    And aflame am I now blazing,
    Just a bit of light to give you,
    That I change your night to daytime,
    I'll combust and I will wither,
    Be consumed and be extinguished,
    Just to give you brightness, vision,
    That you notice one another,
    For you will I fade and tarnish,
    Of me there will be no remnant,
    I will burn, in tears lamenting,
    My desire I cannot suffer.
    Of the fire I am not fearful,
    I will never be extinguished
    If I burn of my desire,
    Try to shine as best I'm able.
    When you see that I have vanished,
    Do not think that I have perished,
    I'm alive, among the living,
    In the rays of truth I'm standing,
    In your souls do I take refuge,
    Do not think I'm stranger to you,
    Patience was bestowed upon me,
    Thus I glow with steadfast courage,
    Doing good is all I long for,
    That you not remain in darkness.
    Forward now and gather 'round me
    Talk, smile, eat, drink and make merry,
    Love within my soul is harboured,
    Yes, for mankind am I burning,
    Let me melt and let me smoulder,
    To grow cold I do not wish for.
    Let my wretched corpse be consumed
    For our true God the Almighty,
    May my lungs scorch, charred to ashes,
    For mankind I'll melt and vanish,
    With me all man's joys I'll carry,
    Bear them to the Lord Almighty.
    Humanity is what I long for,
    Goodness, gentleness and wisdom,
    If you'll with me be companions?
    If you'll love me as I love you,
    If you all love one another,
    Work not for the Prince of Darkness.
    Venture towards me, fleeting heart, do
    Come, approach this fire a little!
    Though the flame may singe your wings, it's
    Sure to sanctify your spirit.
    With the torch that here consumes me
    I the eyes of men have opened,
    Been of them a true companion.
    I do know them, they do know me,
    I've observed them all in passing,
    Mothers, kith and kin, and fathers,
    All of them are my concern still,
    All who lived here on this planet,
    Even now I see them 'mongst you,
    For I recognize their spirits.
    I, like you, have changed, transfigured,
    Changed and altered my companions,
    Many times have I turned into
    Earth and wind and fire and water.
    I'm a spark come from the heavens,
    From the sun I'm glowing embers,
    Through the skies I fly, a-soaring,
    And live deep within the ocean,
    Often in the soil I sleep or
    Take my rest in fruits and honey,
    I'm a suckling lamb or kid goat,
    Flower, grass or leaves a-sprouting,
    So much do I have to tell you,
    Yet I fear my speech will fail me.
    What's the point to put to paper
    Words this flickering tongue's inspired?
