Aleksandar Sarievski ( _mk. Александар Сариевски, audio-IPA|Mk-Aleksandar Sarievski.ogg| [alɛkˈsandar saˈriefski] ; June 20, 1922 – December 19, 2002) was an iconic singer-songwriter from the Republic of Macedonia whose career spanned almost six decades. He was one of the most recognizable figures in Macedonian music.

Sarievski was a co-founder of the folklore musical ensemble Tanec and frequently traveled with the group as an ambassador of Macedonian music and culture. His renditions of local folk songs are particularly well known and, in many cases, the first known recorded versions. These include "Jovano, Jovanke", "More Sokol Pie", "Makedonsko Devojče" and "Uči me majko, karaj me", among others. The popular folk song "Zajdi Zajdi" is also attributed to him.

Aleksandar Sarievski passed away in 2002 aged eighty. The then-President of the Republic of Macedonia Boris Trajkovski and Prime Minister Branko Crvenkovski as well as the Ministry of Culture sent the Sarievski family messages of condolence following the news of his passing.
