There is world music that holds fast to tradition—and then there’s world music that is so energized and unique that it blurs borders. Balkan Beat Box, which broke out of New York City in 2005, fits the latter. The acclaimed electronic group is influenced by a smorgasbord of international sonic textures (Israeli, gypsy, Middle Eastern, among others) and brings the power of invention and activism to the stage.
