Traditional music in the entire Balkan Peninsula has many peculiar characteristics. Its roots could be traced all the way back to ancient Greece thus echoing its forms and patterns across the centuries. A bridge between the Orient and the Occident, it has been influenced both by East and West and yet, it has kept its original spirit because of the rhythms and melodies that have remained closely linked with past performing practices and traditions. Lyrics, melodies and rhythms of this living folk tradition continue to pulsate as vibrantly as ever constantly creating new forms and shapes. This defines the beauty of the style and the number of ways in which it is expressed.
