    BALKANBEATS SOUNDSYSTEM · “HERE WE MOVE – HERE WE GROOVE” (SOUNDTRACK)


    This soundtrack is an audio ticket to continue the beautiful journey started by the art-documentary “Here we Move – Here we Groove” produced by a Bosnian movie-maker Sergej Kreso & DOXY Films Amsterdam.

    Slaloming through sounds brought from far away, preserved through the journey and re-planted upon arrival, it is a hymn to our present and future.

    Far away from fear-mongering and hate-preaching, somewhere between ideals and reality, this musical collection sets up a stage for another sense of identity.
