Only the badest Judens out there

Bulgarian Chicks

I would have never known that Jews in Bulgaria spoke Ladino if Balkan Beat Box didn’t appropriately name their catchy song off of their self titled album “Bulgarian Chicks”. Most of you already know of Balkan Beat Box as a klezmer/funk/reggae band. Some of their earlier stuff, including Bulgarian Chicks, tried to incorporate Jewish sounds from across the Mediterranean including  Gazan Jewish Music,  Turkish Music and  of course this beautiful Ladino track.

Balkan Beat Box-Bulgarian Chicks

I have also included the original Ladino song that Balkan Beat Box ripped off.
