GORAN BREGOVIC 'Balkan Party' (Serbia)

16/02/2016 - 22/02/2016

 

Quite a few musicians would be content with only a fragment of Goran Bregovic’s career. Contemporary composer, traditional musician or rock star, he did not have to choose – he took it all to invent a music that is both universal and unmistakably his own.

 

Continuing his never-ending world tour of Gypsy-fulled brilliance, the Balkan-fusing party-starter returns with his Wedding and Funeral Band in a celebration ranging from Underground to Champagne for Gypsies.

Very few musicians have managed to develop an art of such amplitude that coherently mixes together such a great variety of styles and techniques without losing its identity.  A Bregovic piece can be recognized on the very first hearing and seems to address the whole Earth with no distinction of race, sex, age or religion.
