Grandson of the late Pece Atanasoski Martin Vucic at Eurovision

Some information on Macedonia's Eurovision contestant.


Martin was born on 7 August 1982 in Skopje, FYR Macedonia. Grandson of the late Pece Atanasoski, one of the world’s most famous bagpipe players, Martin quickly showed that he had inherited the same passion for music. His first contact with music was at the age of three when he started to play the drums. He first performed in front of an audience at a concert by the popular Macedonian group ‘Tavce Gravce’. As a seven-year old he landed a part in a children’s festival for new music called ‘Pletenka’. As a solo artist he won second prize. He continued his education in a primary school for music, graduating with honours. In the meantime he joined the youth theatre playing a role in the show ‘Memories in The Night’ by Bonjo Lungov. At secondary school he was a member of the percussion section. It was during this period that he became a drummer for the group ‘Arija’ – he first began to compose music as part of this group. He went on to enter the Music Academy as an extremely popular percussionist. Martin then started his solo carrier as a vocalist. He received numerous prizes and excellent reviews. Martin is currently a senior at the Music Academy in Skopje, and one of the most popularly rated artistes on the FYR Macedonian and Balkan music scene.
