Raim Baki

Oud, Macedonian Čalgija Ensemble

Raim Baki comes from a Romani family of professional musicians originally from the town of Mitrovica in Kosovo. Raim’s oldest brother, Ilmi Baki, was a prominent violinist who led the Radio-Television Skopje čalgija orchestra from the 1970s until his retirement. Raim joined the radio in the late 1970s, is a master on ut (oud), with extensive experience playing weddings, and is currently a regular performer of čalgija with Husref Said in folkloric presentations in Skopje’s historic Ottoman-era market center.
