By mixing his Balkan roots with Western beats, Robert Soko, a Yugoslav refugee, discovered a way to create a new identity: DJ and ‘founding father’ of the Balkan Beats, with which he managed to get thousands of people worldwide in ecstasy. But now that the world around him is changing, Robert Soko has to search for a new way to adjust again. He is looking for new connections to the music of the new generation of refugees that are currently coming to Europe. Just like him twenty years ago, they are looking for a way to survive. The only question now is whether the heavily changed Europe of today still has an open mind for these kinds of musical impulses.
