Experimental, Electronic, Neofolk, Prog (Albania)
Bledi Boraku (Bledar Boraku) is an Albanian musician and composer.
Bledi has started experimenting at a young age as an auto-didactic classical-guitarist. His desire to work on various music genres lead him to self-learn other instruments aside from the guitar; like the bass, drums, percussions and folk instruments.
His first release was an alternative album with his own project “ORa3”, which was recorded in Kosovo by the producer Dritëro Nikqi.
In the time spoken, Bledi Boraku, collaborated with other bands like: “Linda në botën e çudirave” (alternative/experimental), “Permit of Stay” (psychedelic/alternative) and “Fuck the bass” (punk/grunge); those, part of the underground scene in Tirana (AL).
Then he moved to Kosovo to be part of the project “Ambasadi”, formed by producer Dritëro Nikqi, which is still active these days. The project is focused on mixing folk, jazz & post rock.
After returning from Kosovo his focus was more on electronic music composition, primarily on audio programming and home-recording. During this period “Tajçido”, a krautrock/disco-punk band was formed. Their first release was a self-titled album on PMG recordings (https://soundcloud.com/tajcido/sets/tajcido).
“Vrasësit e qenve” directed by Ergys Meta, is the first movie in which Bledi Boraku has composed an original score.
¨Lulet e Dimrit¨ is the first Multidisciplinary art form designed by Bledi, involving music (Bledi Boraku, Mardit Lleshi), modern dance (Roberto Nuha, Rosella Pellicciotti) & video design (Kleidi Eski), which was premiered at ¨Teatri Metropol¨ in Tirana on february 2017.
His solo career debuts with “Ftoji”; a self-released, experimental/folk EP released on december 2015.
