Balkan Taksim: “Cartes Postales”

Since their first-ever single in 2019, Balkan Taksim has given listeners unequivocal access to a fascinating intersection of ethnic music. Multi-instrumentalist Sașa-­Liviu Stoianovici and producer Alin Zăbrăuțeanu dive into a variety of Southeastern European sounds, tethering ancient to contemporary for Balkan Taksim’s timeless blend.

This Friday Balkan Taksim releases their debut full-length Disko Telegraf, a baker’s dozen of exotic, emotional originals that put the duo on the map with weirdo psych sounds and chest-pounding grooves like “Cartes Postales”!
