Prishtina Internationa Festival – ReMusica, is annual festival of a unique form. Its initial mission since 2002, was the promotion of the contemporary music and conveying innovative expression in the art of music, through channels of different stylistic tendencies of the XX century.
For a Newborn country, such as Kosovo is, it has had an enormous impact on the music lovers and others, thus creating a strong bond and making ReMusica the most protruding music festival in Kosovo.
The interaction between ReMusica and its public has helped realize the need for broadening the margins, therefore resulting in enriching the Festival’s physiognomy by introducing the music of other stylistic eras, such as Renaissance, Baroque, Classicism, Romantics, and so on.
The Festival has had a very important role in promotion of Kosovar artists, and culture through very close and cooperation with prominent international artists.ReMusica is composed of a team of music enthusiasts, with different background, from famous composers and professionals, to ordinary people. It has been a productive cooperation, because of one simple matter that makes us a particular family, the love for music.
