Outstanding concert on the occasion of the Canonization of Mother Theresa at the Santiago de Compostela Cathedral and the 30th anniversary of establishing diplomatic relations between Albania and Spain.

Special thanks to Florian Vlashi and all participants!




"The Canonization of Mother Theresa at the Vatican this sunday is an event of extraordinary significance beyond religious beliefs, or states. Mother Theresa was an authentic humanist and personalities like her are very necessary in moments of human values crises. She was originally from a country like Albania, a very good example of the coexistance of three faiths.

On the other side, personally, like an Albanian I feel very proud of this Albanian woman named Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu, a Nobel Peace Prize winner, who turned into an universal icon of mercy and peace.

The main airport in Albania is named after her. It is a beautiful symbol that airplanes departing from 'Nënë Tereza International Airport' head out to every corner of the world like biblic missionaries. It is also worth mentioning that the welcome at Tirana Nënë Tereza Airport sounds quite pleasant, just like a hug."
