The fact Balkan music is also getting a foothold on the other side of the ocean is proven by Montreal based Lubo Alexandrov. Together with his band Kaba Horo, a contraction of the Turkish word "kaba" ("low" or "rough") and the Bulgarian "horo", a traditional dance, a mix of Eastern European and Canadian musicians, Lubo delivers his view on the traditional wedding music from the Balkans supplemented with Turkish and Western influences. The result is 'Contrabanda', a slice of "Balkanica" served just the way we like it!
