The promotion of the Albanian Iso-Polyphony project: Obelisku Iso-Polyphonic group project (2010) aimed at reconnecting the youth with the heritage and in particular with ancient polyphonic singing. Albanian Iso-Polyphony Singing has been recognized as an Intangible World Heritage by UNESCO in 2005. The ancient tradition of Iso-polyphonic singing is deeply intertwined with Albanian national identity, particularly in Southern Albania, and is still performed at social and community events. This project trained 14 pupils of 13-15 years of age selected from local schools, undeceived training from a local master. Since then the group has performed in many events around the country. A CD has been produced with their songs available at the Babameto Center for Culture and Heritage.
