[Coll.]: ROUGH GUIDE TO THE BALKANS
World Music Network, 2003

A good compilation of music – mostly folk or folk-based – from all over the Balkan region (Albania, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Kosovo, Macedonia, Romania, Serbia are all represented). There's a fair amount of gypsy music, as you might expect, with an emphasis on brass bands, but some modern surprises near the end.

All tracks are air-worthy. Fo's Picks: 1, 2, 6, 8, 11, 13, 15

01. great voice; ballad then gypsy-jazz
02. uptempo folk-rock; slashing rhythm
03. brass band w/a funky eastern beat
04. pleasant folk bounce, moaning vox
05. quick brass band; great snare drum
06. screaming vox; quick & twisty tune
07. brass band; doo-wop/disco rhythm
08. great cymbalom/violin bounce
09. slower: sad vox/clarinet/guitar/violin
10. saxophone: folk start, then long solo
11. nice fem duo, cool rhythmic support
12. Bulgarian fem chorus, love medley
13. bagpipe & synth; duo vox; circular
14. somewhat trippy modernized folk
15. beautiful polyphonic singing; short
