Bear Vs. Ceca

with one comment

One of my professors just e-mailed the class with an odd bit of news: “A Macedonian court has convicted a bear of theft and damage for stealing honey from a beekeeper who fought off the attacks with thumping ‘turbo-folk’ music.” Apparently, “turbo-folk” artists (not to be mistaken with American “freak-folk” artists) include a Serbian named Ceca. Ah, the power of music in a nutshell: something as sexy, upbeat and sentimental as this can ward off even the most honey-drunk beast.
