It is identified as part of the wider "Pop-folk genre of the "Southeastern Europe, which includes "Chalga from Bulgaria, "Skiladiko from Greece, "Manele from Romania and "Turbo-folk from Serbia.
It originated in the 1990s within the "Albanian-speaking areas of "Kosovo region, created by the "Ashkali minority (Albanian-speaking Romani). The name is derived from Romani tel o vas, meaning "under the hand", referring to the "Chochek dance where the hands are waved delicately. Kosovo Albanian refugees of the "Kosovo War in the "Republic of Macedonia had brought their music with them, including Tallava. It has since also been adopted by the non-Albanian-speaking Roma in Macedonia.
