Notes
-  Esma Redžepova is internationally acclaimed as the "Queen of Romani Songs" and is one of NPR's "50 Greatest Voices." Born in Skopje, Republic of Macedonia, she began her professional career at age 13. She was the first Balkan performer to make Romani music popular with non-Romani audiences on elite concert stages in the early 1960s. Redžepova, who sings in more than 10 languages, earned the title "Queen of Romani Songs" at the World Festival of Romani Music in India in 1976. She has been a major contributor to many advocacy and assistance programs for women and underserved populations, including disabled and Romani refugees from Kosovo. She has received numerous honors, including the Macedonian Order of Merit, and in 2013 she was proclaimed a National Artist of Macedonia.
-  The Folk Masters ensemble includes Simeon Atanasov (accordion), Filip Nunevski (trumpet), Aleksandar Stamenkovski (guitar). Nikola Mitrovikj (bass) and Safet Demirov (drums).
