Siki Siki Baba

COUNTRY: Macedonia, Turkey
LANGUAGE: original) Turkish or Arabic

This song is originally Turkish or Arabic in origin — “siki siki baba” seems to mean “strict strict father” — but worked its way to Macedonia where the Kocani Orkestar arranged this amazing version (which is only obscured by a passers-by rear end for a few seconds). You should definitely also watch a video of this awe-inspiring version by the U.S.-based Balkan brass-influenced band, Beirut.
