On The Beat and Path went to eastern Macedonia to film a follow-up documentary that Paola and Gary Blanton produced in 2007 about the unique blend of music and dance in the Maleshevo region. The original documentary, Raqin' the Roots with Malesh-Roma, was an effort to start an annual festival in the town of Berovo, population 7,000. In August 2009, Berovo hosted the first Ethno Square Festival. In its 3rd year this past summer of 2011, the two-day festival drew over 25,000 people.
