The Yugotones – Balkan folk and fusion and Das Malakas Turkish folk and fusion
In the first instalment of classic yugofolk complete album performances, The Yugotones bring you the genre classic Dijamanti by the Bosnian folk Legend Halid Beslic.
One of the best sold albums of all times in former Yugoslavia, Dijamanti melds Turkish influenced melismatic folk singing, accordion virtuosity and complex Balkan rhythms with disco/pop sensibilities of the day.
Released in 1984, the album spawned the mega hit Necu Necu Dijamante, as well as several other songs that remain in the genre repertoire to this day.
Come experience the mid 80s in former Yugoslavia again, or for the first time, as The Yugotones perform the album from start to finish!
Special guests on the evening Das Malakas will provide a context for where the Yugoslavian folk scene drew its inspiration, by performing a set of energetic Turkish folk fusion to kick the night off.
