In 2006 Thorleifs participated at Sveriges Television's "Musikministeriet" recording "Gråt inga tårar" together with Balkan band Süperstar Orkestar from the Republic of Macedonia. During a test to combine Balkan music with dansband music, the song was re-arranged from major scale to minor scale, creating the original concept of "Dansband-Balkan music".[8] Süperstar Orkestar also recorded the song for the 2008 album Balkanized.[9]
