Macedonian traditional music (starogradska muzika) performed by the orchestra "Čalgii" - solists on the clarinet: A. Gelevski and Tale Ognenovski
Čalgija (Macedonian language: Чалгија) is a subgenre of the old urban traditional folk music (starogradska muzika) of Republic of Macedonia.
Čalgija is performed by ensembles called Čalgii (Чалгии) with instruments such as a dajre (tambourine) and tarabuka (hourglass drum) providing percussion for ut (lute), kanun (zither), clarinet and violin.
Čalgija is an old part of the whole Macedonian folklore art (this includes the rural folkore as well) and it should not be confused with "chalga" (a contemporary Turbofolk music style in neighbouring Serbia and Bulgaria).
