    This folk song it's about the Albanian mythologic creature zana e malit ( fairy of the mountain in English).

    Every mountain was said to have its own zana, who appeared as a fair maiden found bathing naked in mountain streams. The zana is believed to be extremely courageous, a formidable opponent, who can bestow her protection on warriors. Albanians even have an expression "ai ishte trim si zana", meaning, he was as brave as a fairy, this is used to refer to very courageous individuals. They have another expression, a curse expression actually, "te shitoft zana" (may fairy bewitch you, in English).

    In this song two brother were bewitched by a beautiful fairy and they killed each other for her.

    Song dedicated to Anton Ceta (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anton_%C3%87eta).

    He contribuited to erase "blood feuds" in Kosovo. In some remote part of North Albania "blood feuds" still exists. The laws governing "blood feuds" stem from the traditional Albanian social code, the Kanuni i Leke Dukaginit referred to as the Kanun
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kanun_(Albania)_

    The last part (min 5:10 - 5:15) is the best, literally:

    "I offer you the blood of my son (I'll forgive you for my killed son)"
    "I salute you man, may the honor stand with you (Well done man, bless you)"

    Song dedicated to Gjergj Kastrioti Skenderbeu - Lord of Albania (an Albanian nobleman and military commander. In 1444 he menaged to unite the major Albanian princes under his leadership at the "League of Lezhë", where a confederation of all the Albanian Principalities was created. He has led ribellions against the Ottoman Empire. Later he fought the Venice too. The national flag of modern Albania is based on coat of arms of Kastrioti family)

    It's singed in pure "rapsodi" style (rapsodi are poetry mainly about homeland, war and famous warriors. They are always accompanied with instruments such as Ciftelia or Sharkia.In a special way, they are patriotic songs which are dedicated to brave warriors).
