World Music from Berlin

Acoustic Balkan Fusion - a musical journey across the continent, once from East to West and back! Balkonians: that's cello, soprano saxophone/transverse flute and guitar. Sounds, predominantly eastern, sometimes melancholic, sometimes joyful-dancing. A common love of European folk music connects the musicians, but - as the name suggests - it is Eastern European music that sets the tone and shapes their style.They have Balkan folk, Gipsy, Klezmer, Irish and our own pieces in our luggage, embellished with spontaneous improvisations of all instruments and enriched by vocal interludes of all musicians!
