For over a decade now, ambassadors of groove Balkan Beat Box have kept the world party bumping with deft and exuberant stylistic cross-pollination, and a smouldering lyrical flow. With each entry in its oeuvre, BBB has crafted wildly imaginative grenades of enlightenment and garnered critical acclaim, an engaged fan base, and earned the respect and admiration of other artists.
Balkan Beat Box have released six acclaimed albums, each of them inspired by the artist's own very individual experience of living in a diaspora community and influenced by the current social mood. The core members of the band - Tomer Yosef (leading vocals, percussion, samples); Ori Kaplan (saxophone); Tamir Muskat (drums, percussion) are keen observers of reality, vocal about social injustices.
We’ve been able to create this hub of art where we can go into a room, search deep within our souls, and create together. The real mojo behind BBB is our relationships as friends. It’s been an amazing journey
