Magical sounds and atmosphere at Skopje’s City Park on Europe Day

Rarely have the banks of the pond in the capital’s main park seen so many visitors at night. Duke Bojadziev’s concert on 9 May brought a unique music and visual experience to the audience deprived of events during the pandemic while sending a message for peace in Ukraine.

Duke Bojadziev's concert


On the (fresh spring) eve of Europe Day, the internationally acclaimed film composer, producer and pianist Duke Bojadziev and his friends held an open air concert in Skopje’s City Park.

Accompanied by piano, fellow musicians, including a 25-member orchestra, and two narrators, Bojadziev offered a fusion of his music, ranging from film soundtracks to chamber and orchestral pieces inspired by different cultures.

As interludes, his piano gave sound to fragments of the eternal love poetry of Rumi, recited in Macedonian and Albanian.

The EU Delegation-organised event was broadcast live on the national TV.
