• Balkans

    Recently I've discovered three great bands from Serbia:

    Izvor
    Belo Platno and
    Kulin Ban

    and I am mesmerized. Does anyone knows and want to recommend some more great artist from the Balkans?

    Fanfare Ciocărlia - Romania
    Terra Folk - Slovenia

    These two are best 4 me ;)

    Also more or less interesting can be Balkan Sevdah from Poland (Wrocław)...

    Hi,

    if you like those artists you might (or not :P) like these:

    Goran Bregovic - his latest album Karmen (With a Happy End) can be found on amazon.

    Afion they have only one album - Afion (as far as I know) so don't listen to Zimmer003 previews, you can listen to them on http://www.myspace.com/afion.

    Legen (you can find 2 free songs on www.legen.org/news.htm) and Mojmir Novakovic I Kries it's more of a fusion of traditional music and electronica.

    Oh, and I discovered this ensemble on last.fm radio by chance: Le Mystère Des Voix Bulgares.

    Happy listening. :)

    I like angelite, they have two great collaborations with Huun-Huur-Tu: Angelite & Moscow Art Trio with Huun-Huur-Tu is one of them, the other is an album called "Fly, Fly My Sadness". Unfortunately I can't find it here on last.fm, but it's a stunning album!

    You might like Irfan, too. Great, great band. Just recently ordered their album from amazon and listend four or five times in a row through it.

    Here's some more great artists from Bulgaria:

    Ivan Milev Band

    Ivo Papasov

    Yuri Yunakov

  • Hi,
    just joined this group...with the intention of spreading the love of Afion and Kries (as they are, in my humble opinion, the best world music artists Croatia has to offer), but I see someone has already done that :)
    ps hvala za link za legenove pjesme, već duugo to tražim...
    cheerio :)

    not quite there...

  • I think Paniks can compare to fameous Beirut! Or Beirut could compare with Paniks?

  • Dvig

    Dvig -- very sofisticated and touching music from Vranje, Serbia.

    confusion will be my epitaph...
  • Boban Markovic Orkestar - find his live in Belgrade album, just stunning


    Balkan Beat Box - Nu Med


    Shantel - Disko Partizani

    just give me a shout or leave me a message in case you want more recommendations! Balkan music is just great

    You're absolutely right. Fly, Fly My Sadness is amazing... it's done with a Bulgarian folk ensemble, who I think might be the The Pirin Folk Ensemble, but I'm not sure.

    Probably my favourite Balkan album is called 'Wide is the Danube' by Hungarian singer Irén Lovász and folk-rock-jazz band Teagrass. The album title says it all... it incorporates musical traditions from Hungary, Romania, the former Czechoslovakia, and elsewhere. Very, very good album.

    Head of the Muzsikás and Márta Sebestyén Fan Group.

    Besh O Drom is a great brass band from Hungary. Here is their myspace : http://www.myspace.com/shodrom

  • Bulgaria:
    Irfan - one of the best bands in the world, imo
    Isihia - beautiful spiritual church/folk music
    already mentioned Le Mystère des voix Bulgares
    Serbia:
    Jelena Tomašević - especially some tracks from album "Live"
    Slobodan Trkulja & Balkanopolis - obscure but really fantastic

    आर्यविजयः!

    London Gypsy Orchestra and Perunika Trio are London-based balkan music set-ups, well worth checking out, if you're English you might just get the chance to see them live too!London Gypsy OrchestraPerunika Trio

  • I'm a big fan of Afion (calm and melodic sounds/mixed macedonian and Croatian traditional songs) they really sound beautiful
    and Mojmir Novaković i Kries with traditional songs sang in a new way, with a lot of slavic mythology
    Cinkuši also a band from from Northern Croatia, songs from region Međimurje

    Damir Imamović Trio Bosnia
