Just imagine this is the last night in this world. What would you do? Welcome to the last dance party with La Danza Apocalyptica Balcanica Orchest and your host, Boris Kovac, composer, instrumentalist and multimedia artist from the Vojvodina, the Pannonian part of Yugoslavia. "The Last Balkan Tango", borne of the grim reality of the war-ridden territory of the Balkan states, is an eccentric cycle of dances: Tango, Waltz, Calypso or Rumba, played in the style of a syphilitic salon-orchestra perched on the edge of the abyss. So keep calm and take your dearest and nearest with you... Let´s dance in hope, faith, pleasure, love...


" Kovac slips easily across that twilight zone where contemporary composition and folk music touch.
