You can click on the balkan pop band names to see more information about that particular notable balkan pop group. If they're near the top of the best balkan pop artist list, though, then they should have at least some information available.

All the top balkan pop bands named on the list also have discographies on their pages if you click on the balkan pop band names themselves.

List features Balkanpop stars Zdravko Čolić, Elena Paparizou and more. Every time you vote for an item you think deserves to be at the top, that item can rank higher. Downvote the artists you like the least, like Zana or Eleftheria Arvanitaki. If you do like them, then vote them up.

All important, significant and iconic names in balkan pop music history deserve your votes, so make sure to choose wisely. You can only vote once on this list.

The list includes all new balkan pop bands, and if there are any missing on the list, you can always add them yourself.

Especially since the bands at the top of the list will at the very least be the best choices if you're looking for a list of good balkan pop bands with which to start out. No point in listening to them if they aren't actually good or even half-way decent balkan pop bands.

This list answers the questions "who are the best balkan pop bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest balkan pop musician ever?"

If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular balkan pop bands that you might've heard of, but not really listened to closely enough to cast an informed vote.
