This program seeks out and presents the best emerging artists of the Balkan world music scene. This is the second year of MOST, so we were ecstatic to have received over 100 applications for the Balkan Music Export pillar alone, and the jury had an especially hard job selecting only 12.
Let’s listen to fresh and inspired music from the Balkans, showcasing the many faces of this region – progressive and traditional, minimalistic and war-torn, fusion, complex, mindful and spiritual.
Without further ado, please welcome the winners or Round 2!
