From 1960 until his death, he directed the orchestra for folk instruments at Radio-Televizija Skopje as well as his own orchestra.

Working closely with ethnomusicologist Prof. Zhivko Firfov, he established a standard for the Macedonian izvorno (traditional instruments) sound which became a trademark of radio programs and recordings both as instrumental pieces and as back-up for famous folk singers. Pece also discovered and introduced many village singers to the airwaves and records (Kumanovsko Trio, Trio Kuckovski, Kvintet Temjanuski, Bapcorki, etc.), In 1970, Pece established the annual Summer Seminar for Macedonian folk dances and folklore in Otesevo on Lake Prespa which was attended by many folklore enthusiasts from North America, Western Europe and Japan. Pece was the Artistic Director of the Makedonija Folk Ensemble and guest choreographer for many groups in Macedonia and abroad.

In 1972, he toured North America for the first time and many of his original dances became classics in the international recreational repertoire: Ovcepolsko, Ovcepolska Potrculka, Zensko Berance, Maskoto, Odeno Oro, etc. His material has also been taught regularly to recreational folkdancers by such teachers as Bob Leibman, Steve Kotansky, Michael Ginsburg, Larry Weiner and Paul Mulders.
