Big brass sound? Absolutely. A manic beat that will get you going? Got that covered. The ska-flavored track "Turbo Dizel" from the father-and-son trumpet players Boban and Marko Markovic, a pair of Rom musicians from Serbia, prove that Balkan music is so much more than dusty folk dance costumes. This is fresh, fun, and party-ready. Their new album, Gipsy Manifesto, is out Oct. 29 on Piranha. --Anastasia Tsioulcas
