Balkan Beats - Vol.1 Various Artists (CD)
 
The Balkanbeats compilation casts a wider net. One of the best tracks is Zumba by Mojmir Novakovic`s previous band Legen, who hailed from Croatia, which isn`t technically in the Balkans at all. No matter, kick-starting with the Balkan brass meet surf punk party sounds of Magnifico & Turbolentza, this is nearly all good and rare stuff. Fanfare Ciocarlia and Mahala Rai feature again (albeit with different tracks to those on the DJ Shantel Bucovina album) and there are interesting diversions such as the high-speed Hungarian folk rock of Besh o droM and Bulgarian brass band Karandila`s fiery version of the Roma national anthem Djelem, djelem. American band Kultur Shock and Boban Markovic Orkestar also make their presence felt. Wilder and at times thrashier than Shantel`s collection!
