Albanian media on Bregovic’s performance at Korca beer festival: „Inspirer of the massacre in Kosovo“

This year, Serb singer Goran Bregovic will be making a special guest appearance at the Korca Beer Festival in Albania. The organizers themselves confirmed the news via a press release, announcing that the night of Bregovic’s performance will be the highlight of the festival. Some Kosovan portals picked up the news, which was initially published by the Albanian portal  abcnews.al, with the following title: „Once an inspiration for the massacres in Kosovo, Serb singer invited to the beer festival in Korca.“

As abcnews.al portal reports, the organizer of the famous Korca beer festival particularly highlighted Bregovic’s performance.

„In addition to Albanian artists, DJs and the most popular bands in Albania, the atmosphere will reach its climax in the last evening with the performance of singer Goran Bregovic,“ the organizers said in a statement, the same media outlet reports.

Several Kosovo portals reporting in Albanian picked up this news piece, recalling Bregovic’s performance in Tirana in 2014, when the then mayor of Tirana, and the current prime minister, Edi Rama, gave the Serb singer the keys to the city.

At the same time, however, these media outlets report, citing the same Albanian news agency, that Bregovic „inspired the massacres in Kosovo“ through his music.

„Let us recall that Bregovic became the inspiration behind Serb myths, the inspirer of the massacres in Kosovo, especially his song ‘Kalashnikov’,“ Gazeta ExpressIndeksonlineBota Sot reported.

Although the original news published on abcnews.al does not contain the above-mentioned claims, the headline about the massacres remained visible on the URL link of the news.

The official website of Goran Bregovic, however, contains no confirmation of his alleged upcoming performance at the Korca Beer Festival. Bregovic’s site opens with the song „Kalashnikov“.

The verses of Bregovic’s hit go as follows:

„Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom
Kana hi naj kutz, kutz ehy ja
Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom
Kana hi naj kutz, kutz ehy ja
