Opusalb on the first RTSH festival evening

Last evening started the 56-th edition of “Festivali i Këngës”, in the middle of many colorful lights, extra-music luxury and poorly of new and interesting Albanian melodies. Adi Krasta’s text full of tastefulness stories praying the audience to applaud. “The jury has over passed the vetting process” he says, even that he has no respect for some of them, as if the success of the festival doesn’t depend on the songs but on the jury and its selection. Cocciante ‘s splendor at the opening of the festival would surely eclipse the following songs. His interview  was beautiful,  the famous “Margarita” single as well and his communication with the audience and with Elhaida.  Now I almost thought that the festival was over. But it did not! The presentation started in an interesting and meaningful way by various characters that brought into stage human real values of daily life. Followed a ballet performance where music was just an imitation of Lindsey Stirling’s YouTube videos. At the Festival opening there was expected something to signature of the originality of an Albanian festival, but nothing like this happened. There were only import goods, as we do not even know how to produce or how to pack. The following song of Elhaida’s did not help the show because it was neither new nor any reworking on it.  Generally, we think that the first evening was middle-aged participants, no trace of originality, a few national sounds, no articulating lyrics without any important or special ideas. There were a few good orchestrations and less good voices, less melodies matching the lyrics to express a strong individual feeling.
