'a folk art riot! that you can dance to...'...Balkan Beat Box

Despite their name Balkan Beat Box are a trio who met in New York, a folk art riot that you can dance to, who fuse Balkan folk with hip hop and dance hall beats and shove the hole lot through a fuzzbox. It’s great ribald , wild party music where anything goes from gypsy music to dub…they released their first album in 2005 and have just recently appeared on the radar- could be this year’s Gorgol Bordello– the roots riot upgraded to the 21st century.
