City Settlers
Miki Petkovski – "City Settlers"

One of the best Macedonian musicians is undoubtedly Miki Petkovski, now a long time resident in Canada. His musical biography is a rich one, he played with the best artists and bands in the former Yugoslavia, recorded some great material and after some time released his new album simply called "City Settlers" (MDSCR 004) on his own, independent label. This is clearly one man endeavor as Miki composed, arranged and played all instruments on album's eight tracks. His keyboard playing is masterful, change of tempos, rhythms and musical styles present strong musicianship of an artist with vision. His native Macedonian roots are interweaven with contemporary sounds which support in full his colourful musical persona. "Miles", "Endurance Blues", "Caravan" are probably the best tracks on this collection of his personal understanding of the world we live in.
