References section[edit]

There's a part of the references section that doesn't seem to make any sense:

What is all that? Could someone please fix it?--CurtisSwain (talk) 20:23, 10 September 2009 (UTC)

Apparently, nobody else knows what that was for either, so I just removed it myself.--CurtisSwain (talk) 03:54, 27 July 2010 (UTC)

It's a string of some of her recordings in a confusing format. Some of those CDs are on Western European labels; to the best of my knowledge, Gypsy Carpet was a Macedonian production featuring members of Esma's band. 131.90.0.236 (talk) 00:20, 11 November 2014 (UTC)

800,000 euro ($1,000,000)[edit]

I'm assuming the "$1,000,000" is the rough exchange of Euro into US$? The problem is that there's more than one country that uses the "dollar". In Australia, a $ with a single strike is Australian Dollars. Double strike is US Dollars. Can this be changed to "US$1,000,000"? I couldn't find anything in the style guide regarding this.

Nobel Peace Prize nomination[edit]

  • During her life she has twice been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize,...

Being nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize is an honor, but it is not official or even prestigious. Any national legislator or about a third of the university professors in the world can make a nomination, and there have been as many as 140 some years. Nominators are requested to keep their nominations secret, so it's only those wishing publicity who make announcements, and more often it is impossible to verify. I see no reason to keep it. No offense to the subject, this is a general Nobel Peace Prize "nominees" issue. -Will Beback · · 09:37, 21 December 2006 (UTC)


I too think the nomination is an honor, and more important than her grandfather nationality, for example. So I think that should stay - those nominations differ her from a common man, and are important if you're interested what kind of person she really is. Unless, of course, it's all a hoax ;) And I don't believe that's the case here.


She was indeed nominated (I saw one of the nominations), and the nomination means a great deal more inside Macedonia than it does outside Macedonia.131.89.129.235 (talk) 00:21, 11 November 2014 (UTC)

music style[edit]

i think calling her style 'world music' lacks a global view- obviously 'world' is supposed to mean here 'non-Western'. I have therefore changed it to 'traditional/folk' Mtl1969 22:03, 28 June 2007 (UTC)

I agree that it's not really "world music" -- it's a mix of traditional and newly-composed folk. Her musical frame of reference is pretty much internal to former Yugoslavia. 131.90.0.236 (talk) 00:20, 11 November 2014 (UTC)
