"Our music is our refuge. We’re in many ways opposite, but that’s how we achieve our sound."
- Tringa Sadiku
"The fuzzy, metal-infused guitars and punk rock attitude of Proximity Mine stand for much more than just youthful attitude and rebellion"
- George Foden, Balkan Diskurs
Proximity Mine is an up and coming band from Mitrovica, Kosovo, led by frontwoman Ilda Krama and lead guitarist Alem Redzepagic. Their songs combine Ilda’s background in indies, pop and alternative with Alem’s love for metal. The band met at the Mitrovica Rock School in 2016 and will record their first album this year.
With members from three different ethnic groups and both sides of ethnically divided Mitrovica, Proximity Mine crosses all musical and social borders and gives a voice to the young people of southeast Europe.
Proximity Mine and the Mitrovica Rock School are supported by Musicians without Borders.
