Albania 2013 - Adrian Lulgjuraj & Bledar Sejko - Identiet

Tonight's final of the 51st Festivali i Këngës in Albania offers up the usual tableau of histrionic balladeers in frightening frocks, growly voiced men in blue suits and the fabulous Dr Flori, but there's one particular song that's really caught my eye, and it could be the dark horse to watch out for.

Adrian and Bledar may not be the prettiest of lads, but there's something epic about this sombre epic that shows flashes of dark-hearted folk with some massive orchestral flourishes to the choruses.

It won't be a popular choice among the more hardened FiK fans among you, but I really feel that if selected, this could do surprisingly good business in Malmo next May.


It only went and bloody won! Good work lads!

  1. Cobblers! Albanian telly have just this second blocked every song from the FiK final on the interweb. So I guess you'll just have to watch it for yourself tonight!
