Born in Prilep in 1957, he started playing guitar at the age of 13. Stefanovski was one of the founding members of Leb i Sol with whom he recorded 13 albums between 1978 and 1991. He currently splits his time playing with his Vlatko Stefanovski trio, in an acoustic partnership with Miroslav Tadić or composing for film and theatre.
Stefanovski has played a wide variety of guitars, including a Gibson SG, a Fender Stratocaster - heavily modified with Schecter and Radulović parts, a Telecaster, a Radulović super-strat and a Pensa-Suhr super-strat. The influence of ethnic and folk music of Southeastern Europe and more specifically of the music of the Republic of Macedonia are recognizable in his occasional use of odd meters (5/4, 7/8) and non-traditional scales (e.g. the Phrygian dominant scale).
Miroslav Tadić (Serbian Cyrillic: Мирослав Тадић) is a classically trained guitarist from Serbia.
In the January 1997 issue, the editors of Guitar Player magazine voted Miroslav Tadić one of the world’s thirty most radical and individual guitarists. Most recently Tadić has been exploring Macedonian music in his recent work with guitarist Vlatko Stefanovski and vocalist Vanja Lazarova. Since 1985 he has been teaching at California Institute of the Arts in Los Angeles.
