Goran Bregovic – Champagne for Gypsies. Goran Bregović is one of the most internationally known modern musicians and composers of the Balkans. He currently splits his time between Paris and Belgrade, where he settled down during the Yugoslav Wars. Bregović has composed for such varied artists as Iggy Pop and Cesária Évora. He rose to fame playing guitar with his rock band Bijelo dugme. Among his better known scores are Emir Kusturica’s films (Time of the Gypsies, Arizona Dream, Underground). Bregović’s compositions, extending Balkan musical inspirations to innovative extremes, draw upon European classicism and Balkan rhythms. Bregović’s music carries Serbian, Greek and Romani themes and is a fusion of popular music with traditional polyphonic music from the Balkans, tango and brass bands. – Concert on 24th of February 2012 at 21:00h.
