Ethno/folk Balkan music with strong rhythms and uplifting atmosphere – this is the moto of the Balkan Boys that were gathered in 2009 by Rok Nemanič – Nemo. After some successful performances in different youth clubs and local events, they got more widely recognised after appearing in the TV show Slovenia’s got Talent 2010.
One year later, the group performed as the support act for Goran Bregović at the festival »Guča na Krasu« in front of twelve thousand fans. In 2012, they cooperated with Vlado Kreslin and Lado Bizovičar and published their debut album From Zabledam; now they already have their second album called Radio Me Gusta.
