The band was established in 1995 for the purpose of carrying out an in-depth pursuit of the outstanding folk music treasures of Macedonia. The name "Synthesis" was chosen to express the concept of the group, which is to combine traditional sounds with contemporary arrangements to create a musical synthesis. Digging deeply into the roots of Macedonian folk heritage, with a serious concern for the basics of traditional compositions, the group has received high praise for breathing new life in this milieu.



The melancholic voyages of Synthesis, with the full emotional power of the heritage and the typical complexity of Macedonian rhythms should not be missed by any Balkan music fan. Macedonia has finally uncovered a contemporary world music project! The group uses the full range of original Macedonian instruments: kaval, gaida, zurla, tapan, tarabuka and tambura. The line-up consists of three young lady singers, skillfully handling the local vocal tradition, of a keyboard player, two percussionists, tambura player and, of course, kaval, gaida or zurla on the front. Special mention has to be made here of the fact that while the majority of the traditional groups in Macedonia are amateurs, this band is made up of professional musicians.



The first CD was recorded in 1996 and issued in the very beginning of 1997 for SJF Records (a division of Skopje Jazz Festival). It got excellent reviews and acclaim all over Europe. The music of Synthesis was included on the compilation "Unblocked-the Music of Eastern Europe" on American Ellipsis Arts label. In 1997 the group started its concert activity and played various International Festivals and toured Japan. With no exception the audience and the critics overwhelmed Synthesis with enthusiastic responses. With only one personal change in its history, bringing extraordinary Goce Dimovski on the front, the band recorded the second CD. The title was "Swinging Macedonia" and the release date September 2000. It moves further from its predecessor, being completely acoustic, with the use of two cellists and, on some tracks, full Symphony Orchestra. The first promotional concert of the new CD was in Ljubljana, Slovenia, a double bill with Goran Bregovic. In 2001 the Group had its most successful year, performing USA, Australia, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Poland, Greece, Slovenia and Macedonia. The next year Synthesis continued its concert activity and recorded the third CD, "Live in Skopje". The promotional concert of the new CD was at Strictly Mundial in Marseilles, on February the 28th, 2003.
