Bastion was an eminent electronic music group from Skopje, Republic of Macedonia, notable for its member Kiril Džajkovski, who later rose to international prominence as a solo musician, DJ and a composer of the soundtrack album for Milčo Mančevski's movie Dust. The trio was formed in 1983 in Skopje, then SR Macedonia, part of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. The line up consisted of: Ana Kostovska, Kiril Džajkovski and Ljubomir Stojsavljević. The author of their lyrics was the internationally acclaimed film director Milčo Mančevski, at that time a correspondent of the magazines Džuboks and Zdravo from New York City. He was also a director of their music video for the song Hot day in Mexico. The group recorded several songs in Macedonian language for the music production of the national Radio-Television Skopje. They released their debut self-titled album in 1984. Most of the songs on the record, which was released for PGP-RTB from Belgrade are in Serbo-Croat, because it was the most widespreaded language in the former Yugoslav federal market. After they disbanded, Džajkovski started to work with the prominent Macedonian rock band Leb i sol and played on their albums Kao Kakao and Putujemo. Ana Kostovska continued as a solo singer and actress. In 1987 she was a candidate from Macedonia at Jugovizija, the Yugoslav national pre-selection for the Eurovision Song Contest.
