ESNS: 2019
Andrra is a musician and artist of Kosovar origin whose work revolves around the impact of heritage and tradition on modern society. Born in Germany, Andrra returned to her family village in 2001, shortly after the Kosovo War, and she currently resides and records in Berlin. Debut EP Palinë tackles issues of child marriage and female oppression in Kosovo – an ongoing problem – drawing heavily on folk lyrics and the personal stories of her family. Co-produced by German musician PC Nackt, the EP combines a dark, synth-heavy sound with traditional instrumentation and emotive folk rhythms and melodies.
