Iso-Polyphony in Southern Albania

Listen in pop-out player

Continuing her journey around Albania, Lucy Duran heads south to hear the unique Albanian Iso-Polyphony. She drinks raki and eats spring-onions with a group of singers in the ancient city of Gjirokaster, explores the concrete bunkers left by the regime of Enver Hoxha, and hears how the old songs of emigration are as relevant today as they were in Ottoman times.
