Folk Pop


Folk Pop (or Pop Folk) is a music genre consisting of both pop music and folk music. In Balkan music and Middle Eastern music, pop folk music refers to a mix of pop, folk, ethnic and dance music in which the dominant rhythms are oriental and those of Gypsy music.

Although the genre can be seen as a general regional movement, every country defines its own national culture and superstars. Thus it is known under different names, namely Tallava (in Albania),chalga (in Bulgaria), Laïka (in Greece), manele (in Romania), turbo-folk (in Serbia, Republic of Macedonia, Bosnia, Croatia and Slovenia), to some extent arabesk (in Turkey) and Israeli Muzika Mizrachit. Some artists, however, are well known across the Balkans and the Balkan diaspora and many songs are covered in different languages for relevant markets. The gypsy punk and Hungarian csango musika are akin to these.
