The Balkan countries constitute a region of striking contradictions. While political borders have been changing regularly in recent years, Balkan music endures, even thrives, defying political, religious, linguistic and ethnic confines. The region is bound together with some of the most dynamic folk music in the world as the Turkish brass sound and a series of Muslim influences have swept northward and westward. Western vocal harmonies, waltzes, polkas, bagpipe and accordion have flowed in the opposite direction. Spanning the complete range of Balkan folk, this album rounds up some of the best sounds from Serbia, Macedonia, Albania, Romania, Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina.
