Husref Said

Kanun, Macedonian Čalgija Ensemble

Husref Said hails from a long line of professional Romani Skopje-based čalgija musicians who speak a dialect of Ottoman Turkish as their first language. His father, grandfather and uncle were prominent musicians who regularly performed at urban weddings and coffeehouses. His grandfather and uncle recorded Turkish works on 78 rpm recordings in 1925. Husref studied kanun with family members and his neighbor, Redžep Pampur, the former kanun master at Radio Skopje. Husref joined the radio upon Redžep’s retirement. He is currently a regular performer of čalgija with Raim Baki in folkloric presentations in Skopje’s historic Ottoman-era market center.
