Collective that combines a wide variety of world influences with emphasis on balkan, hip-hop and oriental sounds. This group of musicians had the pleasure to perform at numerous concerts as well as prestigious national and international festivals. The band consists of graduates from Kraków and Katowice music academies. With their powerful execution of exquisite melodies, their music leaves even the harshest critic with a pleasant memory. Balkanscream was formed in 2014 in Cracow by Mateusz Chmiel. ”Street Melodies”, the album you are currently holding in your hands, is the product of a year’s worth of collaboration. This is the start of a prosperous journey for this emerging talent, which with the combination of professionalism and novelty depicts a whole range of widely understood Balkan music.
Working with Balkanscream was quite fruitful for me. During the process I created logo and project of CD cover for their music album. Drawings included into the design was also made by me.
“We try to present the listener a unique atmosphere by weaving oriental melodies in our own musical considerations. We try to take the audience to a different, entirely new, Balkan world.”
