Branko Galoic shows how the combination of Eastern sounds, fine horns and a touch of Klezmer – if played in the right way – can touch an emotional chord. Danse De La Liberté does just that with a beautiful, nostalgic, summery record. This deserves to be widely appreciated. 4 Stars, Festival info, Holland 2021

Throughout the entire album, one can feel the influences of Bregović, Cohen, Dylan, Hendrix, Clapton, Santana, Waits, and regional ethno music on the work of Branko Galoić. However, Branko made an effort to leave a kind of author’s mark on his work, according to which Danse De La Liberté will be considered one of the best editions of this year’s regional world music scene.

Special treat for world music lovers – Novi list – Marinko Krmpotić (Croatia)

9/10   Best albums of the year 2021  Terapija  / Zagreb / Croatia (Danse de la liberte)

Branko dresses in Balkan colors not only tempo pieces with a characteristic jumping rhythm, but also, say, such a ballad as Rain Drops. At the same time, there are things in his music where both Latin motifs and purely rock rhythms are heard, like If You Want to Love Me with a guitar a la Carlos Santana or Rebirth. An hour of music with Branko Galoić and his friends flies by quickly and leaves a very pleasant, positive aftertaste. Worthhearing!

« The resulting album is a great journey through different World Music genres, although most of the 15 included songs give you that South Europe/Mediterranean feeling, with as highlights Million ways (with Greek influences) »,  Strutter’zine,Holland, 2021 (Danse de la liberte)

… from Gipsy Balkan Brass to Turbo-Reggae and a kind of South Italian film music, reminding of a merry-go-round in a Fellini classic”

Radio Bremen CD Tipp Angel Song, DE, 2016

The music is very lively, but also melancolic and romantic…with a touch of Ex-Jugoslavian feeling… I recommend “Angels Songs” at any time!”
