Anxhela Peristeri is an established Albanian singer, songwriter and model from the city of Korçë in the east of the country.

This is Anxhela’s second attempt at representing her nation at the Eurovision Song Contest, having entered Festivali i Këngës (“Albanian Song Festival”) back in 2001.

Between attempts, the singer found success in X Factor Greece, Your Face Sounds Familiar and Kënga Magjike (another popular Albanian song contest, which she won in 2017 with the song E Çmëndu).

In October 2020, Radio Televizioni Shqiptar (RTSH) announced Anxhela as one of the contestants selected to compete in the 59th edition of Festivali i Këngës with the song Karma. Peristeri emerged victorious and was announced as Albania's representative for the Eurovision Song Contest 2021.

Lyrics of Karma

Zoti nuk ma fal Jeta si në përrallë, Më kish' llastuar. Lart në qiell, si një yll, Jetoja unë... Qeshja si e marrë Kur ti rënkoje. E pashpirt, vetëm veten doja shumë. Zoti nuk ma fal Bota mbi mua ra. Më ike ti, më ikën miqtë, As dritë nuk ka. Zoti nuk ma faaal. Thirra po zë nuk kam Lotët mbledh në dorë, të ndryshkur janë. Sa të kërkoja nëpër zemra bosh, Dhe e kuptoja asgjë nuk më josh E vetme jam... Po, e vetme jam. Kur unë rënkoja, qeshje si i marrë. E meritoja unë të hiqem zvarrë Fajtore jam... Po fajtore jam Zoti nuk ma fal Bota mbi mua ra. Më ike ti, më ikën miqtë, As dritë nuk ka. Zoti nuk ma faaal. Thirra po zë nuk kam Lotët mbledh në dorë, të ndryshkur janë. Zoti nuk ma fal Bota mbi mua ra. Më ike ti, më ikën miqtë, As dritë nuk ka. Zoti nuk ma faaal. Thirra po zë nuk kam Lotët mbledh në dorë, të ndryshkur janë.
God doesn't forgive me Life, as in a fairy-tale Has spoiled me Up in the sky I lived like a star Laughing like crazy When you groan Heartless, I only loved myself too much God doesn't forgive me The world fell on me You ran away from me, my friends ran away There is no light God doesn't forgive me I yelled voiceless Bundle tears in my hand They are rusty I looked for you through empty hearts And realized nothing seduces me I am alone Yes, I am alone When I groaned, you laughed like a fool I deserved to be dragged I am guilty Yes, I am guilty God doesn't forgive me World fell on me You ran away from me, my friends ran away There is no light God doesn't forgive me I yelled voiceless Bundle tears in my hand They are rusty God doesn't forgive me World fell on me You ran away from me, my friends ran away There is no light God doesn't forgive me I yelled voiceless Bundle tears in my hand They are rusty
