BalkanBeats Project was founded in 1993 in Berlin by Robert Šoko. [link]
More than a project, BalkanBeats is a cultural battle; by playing original or remixed versions of traditional Balkan tunes, the BalkanBeats project not only gives them a space within the world music scene and on the dance floors, but also in the memories of young people.
BalkanBeats is truly a genre within world music, something which generated itself and will only survive in cosmopolitan culture.
These traditional sounds, mixed with modern electronic beats, hit the party crowd like a lightning bolt, rough and full of emotion, weeping and laughing at the same time.
