The term iso is related to the ison of Byzantine church music and refers to the drone accompanying polyphonic singing. The drone is performed in two ways: among the Tosks, it is always continuous and sung on the syllable e, using staggered breathing, while among the Labs, the drone is sometimes sung as a rhythmic tone, performed to the text of the song.

  • The Place Of Religion In Albania

    According to 2011 census, 58.79% of Albania adheres to Islam, Christianity is practiced by 17.06% of the population, making it the 2nd largest religion in the country and 24.29% of the total population is either irreligious or belongs to other religious groups. The Albanian Orthodox church refused to recognize the 2011 census results regarding faith, saying that 24% of the total population are Albanian Orthodox Christians rather than just 6.75%. Before World War II, 70% of the population were Muslims, 20% Eastern Orthodox, and 10% Roman Catholics. According to a 2010 survey, religion today plays an important role in the lives of only 39% of Albanians, and Albania is ranked among the least religious countries in the world.

How much do you know about this country? The capital of Albania is Tirana and Saranda is the most famous tourist attractions of the Albanian Riviera. But what about the rest of this place? ------------------------------------------------ Watch the entire series here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLbZJ71IJGFRTa_XMM9a4hDh2Yo9CsZzOR Follow: https://plus.google.com/+blinder00 https://twitter.com/Sebastian2Go https://www.facebook.com/official7facts ------------------------------------------------ In this brief video you can find seven little known facts about this country from the Western Balkans. Although most people have heard of Albania, not many things are known about it. Which is a shame, because it’s an old and very interesting country. More information about the video content bellow: 1. Under the leadership of Enver Hoxha, Between 1950 to 1985 around 700,000 bunkers were built in Albania, they are nearly impossible to destroy so many are still in existence. During the nearly forty-year leadership of this paranoid Communist ruler a bunker was built for every four inhabitants. 2. Nodding your head in Albania is a disagreement while shaking the head means "yes", so it can get pretty confusing for tourists. 3. There are more Albanians outside of Albania than within. Estimates of the number of Albanians residing abroad are anywhere from 7-10 million, mostly in other Balkan countries (Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Greece), but there are also a significant amount in Turkey, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Sweden and the United States. The number of Albanians actually living inside Albania? Around 3 million. 4. The Albanian language is an anomaly. It is believed that it originates from ancient Thracian or Illyrian. It shares a number of words with similar or exact meaning and pronunciation with the Romanian language, which is also believed to be related to Thracian. 5. Mercedes Benz is the brand of choice in Albania. 80% of the cars in Albania are Mercedes-Benz. Plus buses and vans. Why? They're robust and powerful, ideal for the bad roads in this country and spare parts are easy to find. They're also a bit of a status symbol. Who wants to drive anything else if you can have a Mercedes? 6. Enver Hozha declared beards illegal, outlawed religion, Albania becoming the first atheist state in the world. He also banned jeans, miniskirts, lipstick, premarital sex, boxing, bananas, westerners, Yugoslavs, Russians, Chinese, etc. 7. Tirana, the capital of Albania, has no street names - The problem dates from 1991 and the collapse of Albania's communist regime.The old communist-era street names were torn down, but little progress has been made towards replacing them - many street signs are still scratched out or missing completely. So locations are described not by its postal address, but by the descriptions of the buildings in the surrounding areas. ------------------------------------------------ More Info: http://blonde-gypsy.com/2013/02/28/15-things-you-should-know-before-traveling-to-albania/ https://www.explore.co.uk/news-and-features/cultural-discovery/item/1512-10-things-you-didn-t-know-about-albania https://books.google.ro/books?id=XYPX1JmlIrsC&pg=PT29&lpg=PT29&dq=curiosities+about+albania&source=bl&ots=DRf9pwRLkg&sig=xZzIltmTA0RRy-MH6ntCmz-4uw4&hl=ro&sa=X&ei=UjlGVf_4DYv5aq68gPgO&ved=0CGQQ6AEwCQ#v=onepage&q=curiosities%20about%20albania&f=false http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/4062429.stm Music: David PeckLunch in a Bag http://freemusicarchive.org/music/David_Peck/ Images: http://archive.250x.com/hoxha.html http://www.albania-proptours.com/OBSERVATIONS-ABOUT-ALBANIA.html http://www.wired.com/2013/03/david-galjaard-albanian-bunkers/ https://geolocation.ws/v/P/7712535/family-bunkers-as-summer-resorts/en http://adampoulsom.deviantart.com/art/Opposite-Mirror-164708108 http://www.ministrybestpractices.com/2008/01/confused-people-dont-laugh.html http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albanians http://imgkid.com/albanian-traditional-clothing.shtml http://albanianvoices.org/2013/03/372/ http://www.tyxikos.gr/10-1-14.html http://2lovecycling.com/2013/11/28/albania/ http://driverlayer.com/img/upset/148/any http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tirana http://blonde-gypsy.com/2012/12/14/top-10-weird-facts-about-amsterdam/ http://www.tvguide.com/galleries/beards-sorrow-1075168/ http://tetrakephaloi.deviantart.com/art/Enver-Hoxha-123215496 https://inthelandofeagles.wordpress.com/2012/08/30/379/img_1660-2/ http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Dh%C3%ABrmi_Albania_bunkers.jpg

Durrës Amphitheatre : The Durrës Amphitheatre is one of the largest amphitheatres in the Balkan peninsula. Once having a capacity of 20,000 people. It was discovered in the late 1900s and today has become a popular tourist attraction. 4. Royal Tombs of Selca : On the right bank of the river Shkumbin at an elevation of 1040 m above sea level, lie the remains of the ancient city of Pelion and the accompanying necropolis. From the 4th to 1st centuries BC the city was the royal residence of Illyrian kings and therefore, also probably an important political and economic centre. 5. Natural and Cultural Heritage of the Ohrid Region : Pogradec and the surrounding area on the shores of Lake Ohrid was first settled by Illyrians in the 5th century BC. By the 3rd Century BC, Roman forces had taken control of Pogradec. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_World_Heritage_Sites_in_Albania Music : Wandering,Gunnar Olsen; YouTube Audio Library The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (French: Organisation des Nations unies pour l'éducation, la science et la culture; UNESCO; /juːˈnɛskoʊ/) is a specialized agency of the United Nations (UN). Its purpose is to contribute to peace and security by promoting international collaboration through education, science, and culture in order to further universal respect for justice, the rule of law, and human rights along with fundamental freedom proclaimed in the United Nations Charter. It is the heir of the League of Nations' International Committee on Intellectual Cooperation. UNESCO has 195 member states and nine associate members. Most of the field offices are "cluster" offices covering three or more countries; there are also national and regional offices. UNESCO pursues its objectives through five major programs: education, natural sciences, social and human sciences, culture, and communication and information. Projects sponsored by UNESCO include literacy, technical, and teacher-training programmes; international science programmes; the promotion of independent media and freedom of the press; regional and cultural history projects; the promotion of cultural diversity; translations of world literature; international cooperation agreements to secure the world cultural and natural heritage (World Heritage Sites) and to preserve human rights, and attempts to bridge the worldwide digital divide. It is also a member of the United Nations Development Group. UNESCO's aim is "to contribute to the building of peace, the eradication of poverty, sustainable development and intercultural dialogue through education, the sciences, culture, communication and information". Other priorities of the organization include attaining quality Education For All and lifelong learning, addressing emerging social and ethical challenges, fostering cultural diversity, a culture of peace and building inclusive knowledge societies through information and communication. The broad goals and concrete objectives of the international community — as set out in the internationally agreed development goals, including the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) — underpin all UNESCO's strategies and activities. UNESCO and its mandate for international co-operation can be traced back to the League of Nations resolution on 21 September 1921, to elect a Commission to study the question. The International Committee on Intellectual Co-operation (ICIC) was officially created on 4 January 1922, as a consultative organ composed of individuals elected based on their personal qualifications. The International Institute for Intellectual Cooperation (IIIC) was then created in Paris on 9 August 1925, to act as the executing agency for the ICIC. On 18 December 1925, the International Bureau of Education (IBE) began work as a non-governmental organization in the service of international educational development. However, the work of these predecessor organizations was largely interrupted by the onset of World War II.

The term iso is related to the ison of Byzantine church music and refers to the drone accompanying polyphonic singing. The drone is performed in two ways: among the Tosks, it is always continuous and sung on the syllable e, using staggered breathing, while among the Labs, the drone is sometimes sung as a rhythmic tone, performed to the text of the song. Rendered mainly by male singers, the music traditionally accompanies a wide range of social events, such as weddings, funerals, harvest feasts, religious celebrations and festivals such as the well-known Albanian folk festival in Gjirokastra. Albanian iso-polyphony is characterized by songs consisting of two solo parts, a melody and a countermelody with a choral drone. The structure of the solo parts varies according to the different ways of performing the drone, which has a great variety of structures, especially in the popular style adopted by all groups performing this music. Over the last few decades, the modest rise of cultural tourism and the growing interest of the research community in this unique folk tradition have contributed to the revival of Albanian iso-polyphony. However, the tradition is adversely affected by poverty, the absence of legal protection and the lack of financial support for practitioners, threatening the transmission of the vast repertoire of songs and techniques. The rural exodus of young people to the bigger cities and abroad in search of jobs compounds this danger. Given these conditions, at the present time, the transmission of this tradition is maintained through professional folk artists, rather than within the family structure. Country(ies): Albania

According to 2011 census, 58.79% of Albania adheres to Islam, Christianity is practiced by 17.06% of the population, making it the 2nd largest religion in the country and 24.29% of the total population is either irreligious or belongs to other religious groups. The Albanian Orthodox church refused to recognize the 2011 census results regarding faith, saying that 24% of the total population are Albanian Orthodox Christians rather than just 6.75%. Before World War II, 70% of the population were Muslims, 20% Eastern Orthodox, and 10% Roman Catholics. According to a 2010 survey, religion today plays an important role in the lives of only 39% of Albanians, and Albania is ranked among the least religious countries in the world. A 2012 Pew Research Center study found that 65% of Albanian Muslims are non-denominational Muslims. The Albanians first appear in the historical record in Byzantine sources of the late 11th century. At this point, they were already fully Christianized. Islam later emerged as the majority religion during the centuries of Ottoman rule, though a significant Christian minority remained. After independence (1912) from the Ottoman Empire, the Albanian republican, monarchic and later Communist regimes followed a systematic policy of separating religion from official functions and cultural life. Albania never had an official state religion either as a republic or as a kingdom. In the 20th century, the clergy of all faiths was weakened under the monarchy, and ultimately eradicated during the 1940s and 1950s, under the state policy of obliterating all organized religion from Albanian territories. The Communist regime that took control of Albania after World War II persecuted and suppressed religious observance and institutions and entirely banned religion to the point where Albania was officially declared to be the world's first atheist state. Religious freedom has returned to Albania since the regime's change in 1992. Albania joined the Organisation of the Islamic Conference in 1992, following the fall of the communist government, but will not be attending the 2014 conference due a dispute regarding the fact that its parliament never ratified the country's membership. Albanian Muslim populations (mainly secular and of the Sunni branch) are found throughout the country whereas Albanian Orthodox Christians as well as Bektashis are concentrated in the south and Roman Catholics are found in the north of the country. The first recorded Albanian Protestant was Said Toptani, who traveled around Europe, and in 1853 returned to Tirana and preached Protestantism. He was arrested and imprisoned by the Ottoman authorities in 1864. Mainline evangelical Protestants date back to the work of Congregational and later Methodist missionaries and the work of the British and Foreign Bible Society in the 19th century. The Evangelical Alliance, which is known as VUSh, was founded in 1892. Today VUSh has about 160 member congregations from different Protestant denominations. VUSh organizes marches in Tirana including one against blood feuds in 2010. Bibles are provided by the Interconfessional Bible Society of Albania. The first full Albanian Bible to be printed was the Filipaj translation printed in 1990. Seventh-day Adventist Church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and Jehovah's Witnesses also have a number of adherents in Albania. Albania was the only country in Europe where Jewish population experienced growth during the Holocaust. After the mass emigration to Israel since the fall of Communist regime, only 200 Albanian Jews are left in the country today.
