Balkan Beat Box - Nu Med

Good news for musical line crossers and their fans: Brooklyn's Balkan Beat Box has a new tune collection (Nu Med) pointed at the world and ready to drop May 14.

I'm looking forward to the new CD because their self-titled debut was one of my favorite CDs of 2005. The group mixes modern beats with more traditional music from Points East. Best of all the music features musicians playing actual instruments. The result sounds like the world hippest bar mitzva band ever.

JDUB, their record company, says this about them:

...Balkan Beat Box is out to prove that all the world is indeed a stage -- and that we are all gypsies.

Listen up for yourself
