This region, what was formerly Yugoslavia, is awesome. It’s terrestrially beautiful, and their music–from folk traditions to psychedelia (and, of course, the two together)–is totaly on point. They even have really great festivals, like the Lost Theory Festival which was in Croatia in 2015.
Today’s show is music from Croatia and Serbia. I thought I’d be able to pull together a full two hours from each country of this region, but I couldn’t pull two hours of music I really super love together in a week’s time. That just means that I’ll have another opportunity to do another show from the region. One last thing. The countries I’m including in this “region” are: Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Montenegro, Macedonia, and Serbia, and the autonomous provinces of Kosovo, and Vojvodina.
On with the show!
