Sydney's DESPINA are living proof that raw talent, ambition and honesty can still prevail in a delicate music industry within the Macedonian communities across Australia. By aligning their unwavering dedication to the do-it-yourself work ethic with a signature sound, singer/keyboardist Blagojce Petrov, accordionist Zoran Markovski, drummer Pece Markovski, and clarinetist/sax player Zoran Stefanoski have helped to define the landscape of today’s Balkan music scene. The backbone of their work? Stylistically re arranged songs incorporating every aspect of music—suggesting a range of influences from Traditional Macedonian folklore to the Gypsy World of electrifying melodies & rhythms..... DESPINA is Energy, Culture and Finesse.
'One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain'.
'I think music in itself is healing. It's an explosive expression of humanity. It's something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we're from, everyone loves music'.
'Sometimes you have to play a long time to be able to play like yourself'.
