Classical Concert Pianist Mimoza Keka Joins Europe for Ukraine Band

Mimoza Keka, a concert pianist from Skopje, is the latest addition to the humanitarian band, Europe for Ukraine. At the age of 26, Keka defended her doctoral dissertation on “The use of digital technologies in quantitative analysis of piano performance”.

Europe for Ukraine – an initiative founded by lyricist and composer Amelia Ray – gathers musicians from 50 European countries to record an original composition in support of Ukraine. Ray’s “Hands in Hearts” was written in multiple languages to highlight the diversity of the European community, and will be released on Ukrainian Constitution Day, 28 June 2022.

The Europe for Ukraine band also includes composer and performer, Adi Mulahalilović – who penned Bosnia and Herzegovina’s 1994 Eurovision Song Contest entry –, Ukrainian violinist Yuliia Kryzhanivska, Franc Moody bassist Rosetta from Italy, and drummer Vicky O’Neon from Finland. Participating musicians will record their performances remotely.

A portion of the proceeds raised from the release of “Hands in Hearts” will be donated to the UNHCR for humanitarian relief efforts prioritised for Ukraine.
