Shkodra Elektronike is the music project of two Albanian immigrants grew up in Italy, pretty away from their mother city, Shkoder. The project is formed by songwriter-producer Kolë Laca and singer-songwriter Beatriçe Gjergji. They have different ages and different life stories and yet their need is so similar: finding a way to go home without taking any airplane.
They define their genre as “Post Immigrant Pop”.
The heart of the project is the re-interpretation of the traditional songs of Shkodra in a contemporary electronic key. The project started in 2019 and in this time they performed in many important events: Exit Festival 2022 (Novi Sad, Serbia); What’s next in music 2022 (Kaunas, Lituania); New Skool Rules 2022 (Rotterdam, The Netherlands); opening of the Albania/Kosovo Pavilion at the 2019 Venice Biennale; opening of the personal exhibition in Tirana of the contemporary artist Adrian Paci; Zā Fest IV; the inauguration event of Autostrada Biennale Hangar in Prizren (Kosovo) and many more. Every performance was warmly welcomed by audience of different nationalities.
In 2020 they started releasing their music: Ku E Gjeta Vedin (an original song) - winner of special prize at “Lule Borë festival”; Synin si qershia; Turtulleshë (Alt Orient, January 2022); Live @Uzina EP (Alt Orient, March 2022).
They also composed E Jemja Nuse (performed by Rezarta Smaja), winner of the third prize at the 60th edition of “Festivali I Kengës”.
In 2022 the project has been selected for MOST - Balkan music export.
