Epic Albanian Folk Songs

Back Download

Traditional folk songs have been told and passed down through generations of Albanian people. Often sung by rhapsodies in epic verse from memory, this type of traditional singing is one of the last of its kind to survive in modern Europe. This series of illustrations depicts some of the oldest surviving Albanian folk songs, capturing the content as well as their dramatic qualities. The theme of these folk songs are often dark and dreary, and speak of supernatural elements. This inspired the dramatic and minimalist style for the illustrations, which are only in black and white.
