For Whom the Drums Beat?

Ljupčo Jolevski

   At the very beginning – the pure facts. Time of happening: 15 May – 5 June 2000. Place: Skopje (read: the most picturesque and acoustically the most flexible scenes in town – Kurshumli An and Matka). Participants: Djivan Gasparijan (Armenia), IONA (France), ZUKO 103 (the Netherlands), Ross Dali (Ireland – Greece) and the domestic participants PECE ATANASOVSKI ORCHESTRA, BLA BLA BLA, FOLTIN, and PRECHISTA. Exhibitions: Robert Kalajdzhi – artifacts, Dragoljub Nikolovski – photography, Boris Petrovski – techno canvasses, Richard Miloshevski – graphics. Cancelled: Okaj Temiz (Turkey). Average attendance: about 500 visitors. Number of sold tickets:?! Media promotion: really sound. Festival Organiser: NEW AGE Citizens Association. Future: REALLY CERTAIN!

    That’s enough as for the enumeration of facts, which can more or less depict the wished for picture of New Age and World Music Festival, beside the already established SKOPJE JAZZ FESTIVAL and SYNTHESIS – Festival of New Music, one of those events that point to the confirmation that in spite of all we are not and we should not be the last (self)forgotten village on Planet Earth. Material poverty should definitely not in the least imply poverty of spirit! Therefore, for the sake of the wanted next and all the future editions of this Manifestation, I provide the following remarks.

"Blesok" editions 01-93 are also available at CEEOL web site.
