Tomorrow Thursday 5 September, starting with the 21 in Piazza Vittorio Emanuele in Piana degli Albanesi, will host the concert Nëna Arbëri.
An appointment strongly desired by the Minister of State of the Albanian Diaspora, Pandeli Majko, from the National Agency of the Diaspora with the support of the municipality of Piana degli Albanesi, to remember Mother Teresa. The 5 September, in fact, is particularly significant not only for the Albanian community but for the whole world since it is the day of the sanctification of Saint Teresa.
The concert will feature three internationally renowned musicians on stage: the Albanian soprano Inva Mula, who trod the stages of some of the most important European and overseas theaters and lent the voice to the "alien" singer of the film "Il Quinto Elemento" by Luc Besson; Olen Cesari, an eclectic and sensitive artist, considered one of the greatest violinists in the world, who boasts a record of international collaborations of the highest level as well as concerts in theaters and the most evocative places in the world; Genc Tukici, a technically superfine and refined pianist of Albanian-French origin.
