Balkan Boys is a Slovenian band with a Balkan soul. They represent the true meaning and purpose of Balkan music – love, positive energy and good vibes. Their energetic stage performance is a perfect example of what happens when you mix balkan melos with rhythms of the world: rumba, ska, swing, reggae. It’s a unique combination. Energy on the stage, great improvisation and perfected music performance take audiences to a whole new level.
It all began in 2007 when singer and trumpet player Rok Nemanič Nemo first travelled to the heart of Balkan music – Guča Festival. After that he was determined to put together a band of young academic musicians and start a brand new story; something never before seen or heard in Slovenia. Since then, the band shared stages with many famous musicians in both Slovenia and abroad, such as Goran Bregovič, Vlado Kreslin, Dubioza Kolektiv, Lado Bizovičar, Mari Mata Hari, Zlatko, and many others.
