Just another rainy Tuesday

So there's this band that's going to be playing this week. I can't seem to be able to figure out what their name is from what is written about them...but they are (quote) "superstars of Bulgarian "wedding music," a kinetic, rhythmbending cultural force that ricocheted across Southeastern Europe in the 1970s and '80s." (unquote) You can view their album here. You will see that they are four manly type guys. (Click on the photo of the record cover to go where you can hear the song samples)

This is how their music is described:
"Built upon virtuosic technique, inventive improvisation, rapid tempos and daring key changes, “wedding music” is based in Balkan folk music and infused with a riveting mix of jazz and rock, Gypsy, Turkish and Indian music, and pure testosterone. " (me laughing-"Ha! Ha! Ha!")

Well, after reading all that, I was surprised when the first song sample started to play! Click on
Lenorije Chaje and listen to the whole snippet... (another me laughing-"Ha! Ha! Ha!")

Testosterone my butt.
