Lili Cingu dies! The dancer who inspired Albanians without speaking
Beautiful, tall, with a personality on stage like no one else, the soloist of the Folk Song and Dance Ensemble Liljana Cingu passed away at the age of 70.
For the Albanians, she was a figure of elegance and an incomparable dancer.
The news was announced by the director of TKOB on Instagram.
"Sad the death of the "Queen of Albanian dance", Lili Cingu.
For years, she was the image of the Ensemble of Folk Songs and Dances, giving life to more than 200 dances danced by her.
Lili Cingu belongs to that constellation of artists, who took the Albanian dance to the biggest stages of the world, showing another Albania, with rich culture and folklore.
The Ensemble rehearsal hall will miss her easy step, and her sweet speech.
But this escape is only physical, because her name will live together with the Ensemble, and wherever the Albanian dance is danced, there will be the memory of Lili Cing with the public that loved and appreciated her so much", writes Abigeila Voshtina.
