Today's program focuses on the traditional folk music of Eastern Europe and the Balkans and the music it has influenced.  Our first album "Balastroika" comes from the Russian balalaika-and-domra folk instrumental ensemble, Skaz. Our second album is "The Wild Field" from the Dmitri Pokorovsky Ensemble. It features the songs of Russia's Boyar's Children, Sayan Peasants, Nekrasov Cossacks and Old Believers. Our third album, the eponymous album of the Goran Ivanovic Group, draws its inspiration from the music of the Balkan countries of Macedonia, Bulgaria, and Serbia.

For tonight's program we explored the genre of Japanese music known as "city pop", which developed in the late 1970s through the 1980s, during the peak of Japan's economic development. "City pop" combines elements of jazz fusion, funk, blues, and adult contemporary music, creating a genre of music inspired by leisure and easy living.
