Balkan music is a type of music found in the Balkan region of southeastern Europe. The music is characterised by complex rhythm. Famous bands in Balkan music were Taraf de Haïdouks, Fanfare Ciocarlia, and No Smoking Orchestra. Byzantine music (Greek: Βυζαντινή Μουσική) is associated with the medieval sacred chant of Christian Churches following the Constantinopolitan rite. Its modal system is based on the ancient Greek models.

Another exotic, energetic, authentic enjoyable Balkan music CD highly recommended is "Nonstop" by the Seattle group, Balkanarama. Erika Borsos (erikab93). This cd is great sampling of Balkan Music and a great place to start if you want to take a quick musical tour of the Balkans and hear what appeals to you. I particularly liked the Romanian piece and want to learn more about that country's music. The CD was created and produced by members of the Eastern European Folk Life center, eefc. org, which promotes Balkan music in North America. Try it, you won't be disappointed! - -Riccardo.

The Dunav Balkan Group was formed in the early Sixties by a number of musicians interested in bringing to a wider audience the folk music and dances of south-eastern Europe. "Dunav" means "Danube" in some Balkan languages. Dunav's repertoire is drawn from the living traditions of Balkan folk music, and the items on this album show something of the richness of those traditions.There are slow, haunting melodies, for example, the beginnings of Kitka and Okarino kolo, contrasting with bouncy tunes such as Moravac and Žikino, and there are many very fast passages as in Ručenica and the finale Kitka suite.
