BALKAN BEAT BOX
Balkan Beat Box is known worldwide as a category-defying cadre of musical freedom fighters.
Hailing from Israel, New York and all points of the rhythmic compass, Tamir Muskat, Ori Kaplan and Tomer Yosef—who MTV has called the Godfathers of Global Bass—came together in Brooklyn’s musical melting-pot to join creative forces and craft an exquisite sonic blend of hand-tooled beats, samples, dynamic instrumental prowess and an outspoken world view.
Drawing upon their wide-ranging backgrounds in global nomad culture, their music is the high-energy fusion of ancient musical traditions with the modern language of hip-hop, dancehall and electronic dance music. The band is explosive on record, but truly unforgettable on stage, where they put on an exhilarating live show that has galvanized audiences around the world.
