Macedonian and Balkan Folk Music

Izvor Music Links

The following links are primarily, but not exclusively Macedonian-related, in one way or another relevant to folk music and culture. I hope at some point to expand the list to cover more of the Balkans. If you discover any broken or incorrect links, or if you would like to suggest a link in any of the areas, please use the contact form to let me know and I'll take a look; I'd appreciate it! Also, If you are a Macedonian musician and would like your group or yourself listed, all I need is a web site or an e-mail address.

DISCLAIMER: Izvor Music does not endorse or support any political views, comments, photos, icons, or symbols you may find in these sites or links therein.
