MIZAR (Macedonian: Мизар) is a Macedonian rock band from Skopje. They achieved a status of a cult band, especially in Republic of Macedonia and across the former Yugoslavia. 
Mizar was a part of the Makedonska Streljba movement. The group is notable for its first self-titled album, as it was the first Yugoslav rock record solely in Macedonian language. Previously, Macedonian bands often recorded in Serbo-Croatian for marketing reasons, as it was the most widespreaded language in the multilingual former Yugoslav Federation. The album was a major success and it is listed among the top ten rock albums ever released in Yugoslavia. Mizar was formed in 1983 in the then Socialist Republic of Macedonia, a constituent republic of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. 
Because of the band's avant-garde sound and image, its Orthodox Christian leanings and support for Macedonian self-determination, they were viewed with certain degree of suspicion by the former communist regime. Still, the group received great media attention including numerous appearances on the national television.
