The Festival team wish to thank the Partners and the individs for their generous support:

The quality of music offered during the five nights of the last edition of the Festival, convinced the organizers of its importance for Albanian culture and for the entire Balkan scene. The music of TIRANA JAZZ FESTIVAL 06 will represent a continuous play between our collective memory and its reinterpretations.

For almost thirty years, Lene Lovich has been gleefully defying conventions about how women in popular music should sound, act, and appear. (What else would you expect from a woman who once made a pilgrimage to meet Salvador Dali?). Lene Lovich's impact on pop music can hardly be understated.
The influence of her arty, flamboyant new wave persona, assertive, banshee-howl-inflected vocals, and idiosyncratic songwriting style can be seen clearly in countless female artists, from peers like Siouxsie Sioux and Grace Jones, to those who have followed in her footsteps.
