Balkan Taksim
ESNS: 2022
A psychedelic fusion of trip-hop electronics and Eastern European folk traditions. Balkan Taksim is the corduroy-clad brainchild of Bucharest-based multi-instrumentalist/artist Sașa-Liviu Stoianovici who, along with his electronic music aficionado and producer Alin Zăbrăuțeanu, is on a quest to educate and entertain audiences around the globe about Balkan psych. Sașa's exploration of traditional Balkan music, ancient Romanian music and Slavic cultures led him to travel the region and record traditional tunes with local singers and musicians, which he later reworked with contemporary electronica, heavy bass and powerful beats.
