About Nedjmija

Nedjmija comes from a musical family where her childhood was filled with different musical instruments and different genres of music.

After seeing her father’s solo concert where he played the viola, she says immediately after the concert that she wants to be a violinist when she grows up and she was only 4 years old at the time.

At the age of 5, she began her musical life by playing in her father’s school orchestra, singing at children’s festivals and practicing her ear. At the age of 8, she officially starts her music education at the School of Musical Arts in Skopje, Macedonia where she receives qualified music education in music subjects and violin as her main instrument for 7 years.
