Balkan music, being ever so seductive, hardly ever leaves its listener untouched. Balkanica does not merely touch you, it strongly embraces you. The body responds – with a smile perhaps or swaying with the rhythm. It is temperamental, vibrant, erotic, bold and open-spirited. We love it and it keeps returning strong feelings.
