Kiril Džajkovski – Modern musician

We didn’t have much time, but we had a lot of energy

p. 1
Ljupčo Jolevski

I would like to rationalise less the times that come, and await them with more enthusiasm and positive energy. The challenge of every project that I work on, as before, is to conquer it in a complete creative freedom – says Kiril Džajkovski, our most fruitful authors of film music, in his interview for Blesok

This last week, friends, journalists, actors, film makers… urban people from the city and the country were distributed the complete circulation of the soundtrack of the movie hit Balkankan, which was released by the Prva partizanska produkcija as their own issues. In this way, the director and producer Darko Mitevski and the author of the music Kiril Džajkovski closed another chapter of the successful project story.

Therefore, Džajkovski today is not only the one who started with Bastion, the first Macedonian electro-pop band, nor the guy who played the keyboard with Leb i sol, an artist who makes electronic music by smartly reaching for his own genes, part of Aparatchiks, collaborator of Kismet somewhere “down under”, an author of “tailor-made” music valued and sought by top directors… but also a prototype of a modern musician, creative artist who lives in his time and creates music whose power will travel to the future. The correspondence with him went like this:

How does Kiril explain the interest in Baba Zumbula? Did you and Darko Mitrevski, the director of Balkankan and author of the lyrics, expect that it would become a hit?
    – To be honest, I did not know what to expect. I only hoped that the audience would like it, especially having in mind that it’s been a while since I made a vocal song of this type. This reaction is really a big and pleasant surprise. And this is all an attractive promotion of Balkankan, which I like very much, because I think that the movie depicts this unusual story in a funny and witty way.

The music gives the movie a special dynamics. At times it even looks like a song “video”.
    – Darko and I had the same
