Balkan, Balkan Beats

Listen to the latest episode


Balkan Jamboree is a music show both for those who are familiar with the treasure of the Balkan music and for those for whom the Balkan music is terra incognita. You all will have the opportunity to find out more about it but most of all I aim to bring enjoyment to everyone who is listening.

Balkan Jamboree show is a cultural outlet to the numerous Balkan communities. A unique characteristic is the inclusion to the Roma (Gipsy) people who are worldwide politically and culturally underrepresented although they are inseparable part of the Balkan culture.

Enjoy the party!
