Balkan Fever London is a celebration of the vibrant and innovative scene that is what has become of the Balkan movement after an extended stay in the UK... it has captured musical imaginations and been given a number of different makeovers revealing the many different influences of the artists involved: from ska to dubstep, latin to jazz, from Spain to Wales and with moods ranging from the sublime to the comedic, theres something for everyone in this compilation. Each track captures the energy of the live performance, the cohesive togetherness of the band with the highlights of some great virtuoso moments. The Balkan states are at the intersection of so many worlds and their music very much reflects this melding of diverse and rich traditions. It is in this same spirit, the meeting of the diverse, that the tracks on Balkan Fever London show that no matter what your roots are, as long as you are speaking the first language of the world - music - then you are speaking a language that everyone can understand.
