Going beyondMoreIn Balkan Fascination, ethnomusicologist Mirjana Lau%sevic, a native of the Balkans, investigates why so many Americans actively participate in specific Balkan cultural practices to which they have no family or ethnic connection. Going beyond traditional interpretations, she challenges the notion that participation in Balkan culture in North America is merely a specialized offshoot of the 1960s American folk music scene.

Instead, her exploration of the relationship between the stark sounds and lively dances of the Balkan region and the Americans who love them reveals that Balkan dance and music has much deeper roots in Americas ideas about itself, its place in the world, and the place of the worlds cultures in the melting pot.
