”Balkan Chicks” is a cool party tune which suits young and old.
The traditional, Norwegian folk tune ”Pål sine høner” (Pål´s Hens)” is dressed up in a Balkan-pop suite with a driving groove and catchy melody. The middle part feature a solo section where the players can showcase themself with a simple melody.
In this call-response section, the musicians rise up alone or in groups, while the rest of the band responds. The section may be repeated as many times as you like.
