Live music by Driton Berisha

Driton is a Roma artist, who today lives in Plemetina. His passion for guitar started during his early years; however, he only bought his first guitar at the age of 16. It had three strings and cost him 2 euros. He soon bought a set of new strings and continued to practice how to play and sing. At the beginning of his guitar life, he would only play instrumentals of songs, and only later discovered the fun in playing and singing songs together with friends, which motivated him to learn, play and sing all kinds of songs. Although he sees his music as a hobby, he now has two albums of his own songs, many of which are about love and some deal with human rights. A number of his songs have been used as tracks in documentaries.
