The title of the latest album by dancefloor rebels Balkan Beat Box is perfect: Blue Eyed Black Boy. Because the band is never better than when they’re protesting, singing about race, or otherwise stirring the pot. While dancing. This is tribal, beat-driven chanting hip hop with Eastern European influences. Yes, it’s that big a mouthful. It’s Rage Against the Machine with less rage and more rhythm. Even if you hate world music, you’ll find something to like here.
