Performance: FORTESA


FORTESA was born as the daughter of political refugees from Kosovo and grew up as a musically inclined child. She was always drawn to the drama club and the choir. At the tender age of 19, she travelled to the USA and even received a part-time scholarship to the American Musical Drama Academy in Los Angeles. However, she decided to study theatre in Munich near her family. After graduation, she spread her wings to pursue her real passion, making music. As a musician, she has had a variety of musical influences, but she attributes the decisive influences in her artistic work to the Albanian pop icon Adelina Ismajli. As a songwriter and singer, she cites influences such as Destiny's Child, Mariah Carey, Lana del Rey, Nirvana, Frank Ocean, The Weeknd, Amy Winehouse and Miguel. This diverse range of influences has led to the development of FORTESA's music. She uses her musical acumen and ideas to create an experimental and original sound.
