Dardan Blakaj, born on 26th of August, 1998, in Prishtina. I have finished my high school studies in “Ahmet Gashi High school” in the city of Pristina. Since a very young age I have had a passionate drive for the social and arts field, initially as a moderator and journalist in a kids program, later as an actor and recently as a musician and instrumentalist (percussion and guitar). I have started an intensive work with drums three years ago, and this year I have become a part of Mitrovica Rock School which has proven to be a very fulfilling experience, artistically speaking.

Hi, my name is Luka, I’m 21 years old and I’ve been a member of Mitrovica Rock School since 2015. I’m the vocalist and rhythm guitarist of “Morana”. See you in Skopje!
