Biography

Gentiana “Genta” Ismajli (born April 12, 1984 in Gjilan, Kosovo) is an ethnic Kosovar-Albanian singer-songwriter and actress.

A few months after her birth, her parents decided to move to Chicago, Illinois. At the age of 19, she went to back to Kosovo to sing a song called “Dridhem”. The song became an instant hit, which ignited Genta’s music career. She soon relocated to Kosovo with the intention of remaining for good, and has participated in several music competitions, both in Albania and Kosovo. She won Kënga Magjike in 2005 with the song “S’dua tjetër” composed by Adrian Hila, an Albanian composer. She got 292 points. Genta’s first hit was “Kthehu”. The music video was released in America and when she came to Kosovo she was already known. Gentiana continued her career in Kosovo for three more years. She had great success; she then went back to America to spend some time with her parents and came back to Kosovo with new projects in mind.

Ismajli sings mostly commercial pop songs, similar to other Balkan pop. Lascivious stage movements with challenging clothes are a part of her image. Genta is known for her energetic dance performances as well as catchy pop and hip hop rhythms. She participated in the first edition of Dancing with the Stars (Albania), where she ranked second overall.
