This is Mentor, Ashkali 7 years old kid from Fushe-Kosova, Republic of Kosova. He collects the plastic and metals from trash bins, by day and by night to help his family to survive. Any money that will be collected from this video will be donated to his family. Despite that, as can be seen on this video, he has a very special voice. This way of singing is street free style known as tallava, Tallava is original style, made by Gypsy people living in Balkans. In Kosova, Gypsy people are divided in three nationalities: Ashkali (those who speak mainly albanian), Egyptas (those who speak mainly Roma lagnuage) and Roma (those who mix Roma lagnuage with albanian language and other languages). Tallava can be compared to the jazz and blues from Africa.
