Balkan Music; A Personal Journey On returning to Australia, I wondered how my new passion for Macedonian music could continue to develop. One night while busking with the gaida outside Hoyts cinema complex in Sydney, about 15 young Macedonian men started dancing to the music and I soon discovered a rich and thriving Macedonian culture alive and well in Sydney. This encouraged me to organise a two-month tour for Lazo, Mile Kolarov (a wonderful 73 year-old kaval player who had lived in the same village as Lazo and played in the Radio Skopje Orchestra for many years), Chris Gunstone (a tambura player with whom I had played in the Zivko Firfov group) and myself under the name of Orkestar Grupa PecaIbari (see photo).
We played concerts, dances and workshops in Sydney, Canberra, Wollongong and Melbourne in early 1979 and recorded the album "Dojdovme" (soon to be re-released on CD).
