The ethno band ‘Monistra’ was founded in 2002.

All of Monistra members are graduated musicians from the Faculty of music Ss. Cyril and Methodius University – Skopje.

The band plays Macedonian ethno music using traditional instruments. The music is enriched with modern arrangements.

With the past concerts and performs in Macedonia and on international festivals, the ethno group Monistra has established as a very successful presenter of the Macedonian ethno music. The irregular rhythmic that characterizes the Macedonian’s songs and dances is particularly cultivated by the ethno group.
