Old Beats, New Verses: 21 Newly Composed Essays on Turbofolk


Welcome to the SCALAR site for the course Punks and Divas in Southeastern Europe: Popular Music and Cultural Identity in the Balkans (REE 325). This website was created by students at the University of Texas at Austin; the course instructors Vladislav Beronja and Michelle Daniel; and the European Studies Librarian Ian Goodale. The goal of the site is to showcase student research on turbo-folk, a music genre popular across Southeastern Europe that combines electronic beats with elements of traditional folk music.
