Contextualizing turbo-folk within a wider history of the region, the essays unpack the many contradictions and anxieties around constructions of national identity through popular music in the contemporary Balkans. Here, turbo-folk controversies become especially heated, since many (if not all) of the former Yugoslav states are still searching for a stable national identity in the aftermath of recent wars, breakdown of the communist project, and a longer historical legacy of colonization.
