The core members of Brooklyn world party band Balkan Beat Box — Tomer Yosef, Ori Kaplan, and Tamir Muskat — have been shaking things up with their deep grooves for over a decade now. Their Eastern European roots shine bright as they work in elements of hip-hop, reggae, punk, free jazz, and many more genres to fuel their anthemic, brilliant musical fire. They brought their massive sound to Serious Business Music in DUMBO for this episode of BTR Live Studio.
Shout It Out is available now from Balkan Beat Box.
