A fascination for all things Balkan is a bit of a thing going on here at this is my england. This runs to a predilection for taking holidays in that part of Europe, major fanboy status when it comes to the music of Goran Bregović, appreciation for the region's top stand up philosopher, and big love for the films of Emir Kusturica

The newest piece of the this is my england Balkanophile love-in is the wonderful discovery of Las Balkanieras, an-all female trio of singers/rappers, whose stuff is chock full of ragga-slash-dubsep beats, SE European folk harmonies and humorous lyrical references in both English and the artists' native languages. Now based in Germany, Mi$$ Ru$$ia, La Dona Bo$anch€ra and Balkani€ra M€diteranovich hail, respectively from Russia, Bosnia and Croatia - and they fucking rock:
