Serbia First Rehearsal

Serbia up next. Balkanika take to the stage dressed in very Balkan-esque attire. Very strong vocals for the first time out and visually impressive. The choreography is lovely and symmetrical and the percussionists flank the four vocalists. The flutist shot at the end was a typical Balkan touch. Ten years ago, this would have easily troubled the top four and on the night, it should qualify. Will be interesting to see how the rehearsals progress.
