    In this thread i posted all types of Albanian music (Kosovars are Albanians too).

    The difference isn't about Kosovo and Albania but between Gheg and Tosk.

    The Albanian language has two dialects Gheg (divided into four sub-dialects: Northwest Gheg, Northeast Gheg, Central Gheg, and Southern Gheg) and Tosk (divided into five sub-dialects: Northern Tosk, Labėrisht, Ēam, Arvanitika, and Arbėresh).

    The dialects of Albanian are usually mutually intelligible so we understand each other. Standard Albanian is based mostly on Tosk dialect.

    Are you saying that a northern Gheg speaking Albanian would struggle understanding the southern Tosk if there was no standard dialect?
    You have more Neanderthal variants than 86% of 23andMe customers.
    However, your Neanderthal ancestry accounts for less than 4% of your overall DNA.

    Kosovar Albanian music is practically the same as Albanian music from Albania. The dialects aren't completely different, the NE Gheg dialect that is spoken in Kosovo is spoken in some areas of Albania, as well as the fact that a Gheg can understand a Tosk so even a southern Albanian wouldn't have much problem understanding a Kosovar Albanian

    No.

    What i’m saying is that usually we can understand each other (even without Standard Albanian...generally, every Albanian, in his daily life, communicate in dialect) because Albanian dialects are mutually intelligible.
