Biography
Kaliopi was born in 1966 in Ohrid and lived in Kichevo till the age of 10 when, because of great musical ambitions, she and her family moved to Skopje. In 1976, Kaliopi took part in the "Golden Nightingale" children festival and won the first prize. This is the official beginning of her music career. A period of Kaliopi's intensive musical education followed with the best musical pedagogues, both Macedonian and foreign. Then she performed at the "Opatia", "Split", "Mesam", "Makfest", "Videoclip" festivals in which she carried off numerous awards. Kaliopi represented her country at the international "Bizarta-Tuni" festival as well and won another award. In 1987, Kaliopi did a big concert tour through the Soviet Union. Then she released two albums, Kaliopi and Dearest in 1988. At the time of ex-Yugoslavia, Kaliopi managed to gain immense festival recognition.
In 1989, Kaliopi moved to Switzerland but came back at the Macedonian festival scene in 1996 with her performance for the ESC national selection. For the first time presenting herself as a complete author, Kaliopi performed at the "Skopje festival" and won the Grand Prix award. Followed her performance at "Eurofest" and, in 1999, her album Paint me was released. The album experienced a great concert promotion throughout the country. In 2000, Kaliopi founded her own record company (Kaliopi Music Production), where she published If the day is night to me, her fourth album, also appearing as a complete author. In the meanwhile, five video clips had been shot and the preparation of the sixth one is underway. A documentary about Kaliopi was also realized.
This year, Kaliopi started her great tour throughout Macedonia, planned to last till 2002; Kaliopi's musical career 25th anniversary. What a better birthday present than to meet her public again and to be #1 in the Macedonian charts with her new single Dearest?
Original lyrics Mesecina
 
Sama nokva patuvam
I nikoj ne me zapira
Jas nema kogo da go budam
Osven sonot na mojava pernica
 
Kako zvezdi osameni
Isprateni negde na pat
I nikoj od nas
Nikoj ne moze da gi vidi
 
Kako ptici beskrilni
Noseni so vetrovi bez glas
Jas bi se vratila
Samo da ti kazam
 
Samo si ti mesecina
Od ova nebo sto me pokriva
Samo ti i nikoj drug
Ne me prati vo dalecina

 
Sama nokva patuvam
I nikoj ne me zapira
Jas nema kogo da go budam
Osven sonot na mojava pernica
 
Kako zvezdi osameni
Isprateni negde na pat
I nikoj od nas
Nikoj ne moze da gi vidi
 
Kako ptici beskrilni
Noseni so vetrovi bez glas
Jas bi se vratila
Samo da ti kazam
 
Samo si ti mesecina
Od ova nebo sto me pokriva
Samo ti i nikoj drug
Ne me prati vo dalecina

 
Za eden zdiv
Za eden son
Za mene malku e potrebno
Placeme vo sebe
A jas ne mozam
Bez tebe
 
A jas ne mozam bez tebe...
English lyrics Moonlight
 
Alone on the road tonight
And no one can stop me
I have no one to wake him up
Except the dream on my pillow
 
Like stars, lonesome in night,
Send away somewhere
And no one from us,
No one can really see them
 
Like birds, wingless,
Carried by the winds, voiceless,
I would return to tell you
 
Only you, you are the moonlight
From this sky that covers above
Only you and no one else
Follows me into the distance

 
Alone on the road tonight
And no one can stop me
I have no one to wake him up
Except the dream on my pillow
 
Like stars, lonesome in night,
Send away somewhere
And no one from us,
No one can really see them
 
Like birds, wingless,
Carried by the winds, voiceless,
I would return to tell you
 
Only you, you are the moonlight
From this sky that covers above
Only you and no one else
Follows me into the distance

 
Just for one breath
Just for one dream
I need so little just for me
We cry in ourselves
And I couldn't do it
Without you
 
And i couldn't do it without you...
