The Macedonian virtuoso accordionist and music creator died at the age of 61 Milan Zavkov, announced by the folklore ensemble "Tanec".

He started playing the accordion when he was 8 years old. He had his first attempt at the age of 14, when he was part of the orchestra of Gjorgi Dimchevski in the "Mlad Tanec" ensemble. In his early years, Zavkov played in KUD "Mirce Acev". At the time he enrolled in studies, there was no accordion section. Thus, he graduated from the music academy in Skopje, and his main instrument was the double bass. With the octet "Macedonia" he recorded his first record, in 1970 with four dances.

He worked together with the saxophonist Ferus Mustafov and was a long-time member of the group "Macedonian Merak", and later a part of the ensemble "Dance" as a symbol of Macedonian traditional folklore. He is the author of a large number of songs, performed by Violeta Tomovska, Gotse Arnaudov, Efto Pupinovski, Blagica Pavlovska, Aneta Micevska, Lence Kukic и Goran Kukic.
