Elita 5 is an Albanian rock band.[1]

Career[edit]

The band formed in 1989 in the town of Tetovo, Macedonia. They recorded their first album titled Elita 5 in 1990.[2]

They have repeatedly refused to play in competitive festivals stating that "the band does not belong in festivals", preferring concerts instead.

In a 2001 concert the band opened in Tirana, Albania for the German heavy metal band Scorpions, the vocalist Arif Ziberi in an interview noted that this was one of the most exciting moments in his life.[2]

In 2008 the band organized a humanitarian concert in Tetovo, Macedonia for the victims of the 2008 Gërdec explosions.[3]

They take part in many concerts and are annually invited to close the Beer fest in the city of Korçë, Albania.
