Elina Duni – Biography

Born into an artistic family in Tirana, Albania, in 1981, Elina made her first steps on the stage as a singer aged five, singing for National Radio and Television.

In 1992, after the fall of the communist regime, she settled in Switzerland with her mother and started studying classical piano and thereafter discovered jazz.

The music of Elina (AL-CH), which deals with migration and loss, with the tension between home and being foreign, argues for an open Europe. With her exceptional voice she builds bridges between Balkan traditions, songwriting and contemporary Jazz.


In Bioskop Balkan we hear two pieces of exceptional musicians : 

The tender, longing song Mos ki frikë (Don’t you fear dear), 2015, from Elina Duni and the hypnotic, repetitive, constantly evolving sound of Batkovic’s piece Quatere, 2015, that he elicits from his accordion.
