What is the sound of Kosovo’s landscape? How a land marked by war expresses harmony through its women, through those ancient songs? Kang e Defa is an exploration of female rhapsodies across the youngest country in the Balkans. A poetic trip, a collage of stories, of characters, of music. And more than anything else, a celebration of Kosovo’s women.
