Emil Adamski

Macedonian Village Ensemble, Macedonian Kaval

Emil Adamski was born in Makedonska Kamenica, a small mining town which is host to numerous folk culture events of which Emil was a frequent participant in his younger years. He graduated from the Ilija Nikolovski-Luj Music High School, where he engaged in the study of Macedonian folklore. He was particularly interested in village instruments and he had the opportunity to study them there with Prof. Bajsa Arifovska. He continued his artistic pursuits as an instrumental musician, performing at numerous cultural events in Macedonia and abroad. He received a degree from the Sts. Cyril and Methodius University in Skopje in music theory and education. Emil perfected his instrumental skills with Prof. Dragan Dautovski, mastering both the kaval and gajda. Upon finishing his studies, he has continued to play professionally and works actively to preserve Macedonian folklore and cultural arts through many musical projects.
