New Balkan Styles At Yamaha Online Services!

This week we've added a selection of new Styles that were produced by our colleagues in Europe. We're pretty excited to offer 5 new Balkan Styles in addition to a couple of Styles that are perfect for international pop hits! Each Style is created with multiple versions specific to different Yamaha keyboards, ensuring you'll get the most out of your instruments voices and ultimately enjoy high quality sound!

Jagger Move
As the name implies, this Style is inspired by the hit song "Moves Like Jagger" by Maroon 5 featuring Christina Aguilera. This Style has 4 variations that groove and grow into an epic dance beat. Featuring 2 trance voices, grand piano, and a sweet whistle!


Australian Neo Pop
This style is inspired by the song "Somebody I Used To Know" by the Australian singer/songwriter Gotye. We like this Style for its laid-back vibe, which is tempered with pizzicato acoustic guitars. Featured voices include xylophone, harp, vintage guitar, and organ.


9-8 Balkan
Fans of Eastern European rhythms will love this Style in the 9-8 time signature. It's a modern arrangement of a traditional musical style, featuring trumpet, allegro strings, and clarinet.


7-8 Balkan
The 7-8 time signature is a lot of fun to play around with, especially if you're used to standard 4-4 or waltz time. Practice all your scales or compose an authentic celebration song from southeastern Europe. Featured voices include warm guitar, lush strings, and clarinet.


Sasa Balkan
Another modern arrangement of a traditional Serbian Style! Featuring a variety of upbeat marches, this Style has a lot of possibilities, and sounds pretty great in a minor key. Featured voices include warm electric guitar, classical guitar, a sweet trumpet section, and steel guitar.


Rumba Moderna
Here's an upbeat Rumba Style that really moves! It's perfect for adding a little flavor to a dance tune, or trying something more traditional. Featured voices include a dynamic string section, musette, trumpet and warm guitar.


These new Styles are available exclusively from Yamaha MusicSoft and Internet Direct Connection.
