MORE ABOUT BALKAN TRIBES
Balkan Tribes was formed in 1995, as a reflection and a reaction on what was going on in the region of former Yugoslavia, where all the members of the band are from. Two founding members, Milan Kovacev, from Belgrade, Serbia, and Damir Prcic, from Tuzla, Bosnia met some 15 years ago while serving their mandatory military service in what was then a peaceful and unified country.
Balkan Tribes combines instumental, rhythmic, and vocal samples of the traditional folk with electronica, pop, and dance sounds.
The members of Balkan Tribes believe that paying homage to their forefathers enables them to see themselves in a whole new light, to re-examine their realities and forge forward freshly and fearlessly, with hope that in generations to come they will be the ones examined, the ones to transfer the torch of illumination.
