It is sad news is the death of Nexhmije Pagarusha, the icon of Albanian music, who with her magic voice made Albanian music known internationally.
Nexhmije Pagarusha, with her personality of a genuine artist, became the ambassador of friendship between the Albanian people and other peoples in the region and beyond.
Eternal gratitude for the special contribution and dedication to Albanian music and culture, as well as its international promotion.
On behalf of the University of Tetova, I extend condolences to her family, institutions of the Republic of Kosovo and to our entire nation.

Prof. Dr. Vullnet Ameti
Rector of the University of Tetova
