Vlatko Stefanovski was born in 1957 in Prilep as part of SFRJ (former Yugoslavia) and now Macedonia. First musical steps Vlatko do it at age 13 by playing guitar. Those happy times made some of the best musicians of all time. I am not talking about Yugoslavia artist, i am talking about worldwide musicians. He was one of starting members and founders of his first band (1977) called LEB I SOL. Interesting thing is that first concert was played as foreband of Bijelo Dugme. Bijelo Dugme was then one of most popular rock bands in former Yugoslavia. After that jump start LEB I SOL became one of the most important names in the music scene.

Vlatko was considered as one of makers new genre (etno-rock) but he was not the only one. People described this genre as mixture of rock and etno sound and adding note of jazz style.

Leb i Sol (translated as "Breed and Salt") as synonym of christian tradition "I will eat just salt and bread if i need to but i wont give up ". First music house that published theirs album was PGP RTB in 1977. Since then Leb i Sol made 16 albums touring at the time, all over the world.

Vlatko Stefanovski has decided in middle of 90's to to try as solo guitar player. His solo career was start being very succesfull. “Cowboys & Indians”, “Vlatko Stefanovski trio”, “Sarajevo”, “Kula od karti” etc. Later Vlatko was teaming with Miroslav Tadic, playing solely on acoustic guitar what was opposite from previous playing on electric guitar. Miroslav was on the albums “Krushevo”, “Treta majka”, “Live in Belgrade”, and “Live in Zagreb” giving him whole new acoustic style in traditional Macedonian music.

Vlatko was played and recorded all around the world with many top artists like Tommy Emmanuel, Stochelo Rosenberg, Gibonni, Jan Akkerman, Theodosii Spassov Stefan Milenkovic, Kudsi Erguner, Bojan Z., Manu Katche, Toni Levin, and many others. Latest trio (and still playing with them) King of Strings. That trio was made from Tommy Emmanuel, Stochelo Rosenberg and Vlatko Stefanovski.

Stefanovski was made unique guitar style and recognizable tone. Simpy, when you hear it you know that is him.
