Balkan Beat Box is a world-rpm group made up of members from New York and Tel-Aviv. This album is really beautiful and flows together really well. The twelve tracks don't necessarily tell a story but they do blend together in a form of rpm, world, and jazz music. Some songs lean more to the RPM side and others to the world side. The vocals are really clean and beautiful. They are versatile and fit both genres of rpm and world. They range from clean vocal singing to more pop style rapping with rpm backing. This album is hypnotic, groovy, soothing and really just pretty. Honestly it's perfect dance music and I can't stop listening to it. One of the best world albums I've heard this year. I would suggest this album for anyone with either a world show or an rpm show.

Recommended Tracks: 
4. Chin Chin (3:48) - really groovy and makes you move, more world than rpm
5. I'll Watch Myself (3:48) - more rpm, almost pop. But very cool, smooth and timed vocals. Has a bit of rapping.
