A ten-piece Finland-based music group, Slobo Horo is constantly on the conserve the music of Turkey, Albania, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Serbia, as well as the seldom heard Gypsy music from the Balkan Mountains area. Although they originally performed “state-approved” folk music, the music group has increasingly transformed its focus on more metropolitan dance music. Based on www.digelus.com, Slobo Horo may be the “world’s coolest & most rockin’ electric powered Balkan music group.” Acquiring their name from a sketch within a Finnish tv comedy present of the first 1980s, Slobo Horo spent years rehearsing on the Institute of Folklore in Tampere, Finland. Their debut record, Mastika, released in Finland in 1993 and in Scandanavia, Germany, Austria, and Switzerland the next year, was accompanied by Esma in 1994 and Divane in 2000. A remix one and video of the tune “My Gypsy Beauty” premiered in 1993.
