Goofy Name. Fun Music

If you enjoy offbeat bands like Gogol Bordello, Devotchka, and Beruit, add Balkan Beat Box to your play list. This group combines music of the Mid-East, hip-hop, dance, Reggae, Gypsy, Greece, and even a smattering of Le Mystere de Voix Bulgares and Pink Martini. Yep, this group has it all. It’s an extremely fun group to listen to. They’re actually from New York City, but have their roots grounded in Israel. If you think they sound a bit like Gogol Bordello, that’s because both principals of the group, Ori Kaplan and Tamir Muskat have worked with that group. Expect to hear heavy percussion; lots of singing, and a rhythm that makes you wanna dance. Hey, if I was getting married today, this is the group I’d want to play for my wedding. What an exciting band—with a great future ahead of it. So get up and dance already!

Here's a taste of the joy of their music:
