Globally renowned artists, Emir Kusturica with The No Smoking Orchestra, and Goran Bregovic with The Wedding and Funeral Orchestra, will be offering fans a unique performance that sees them sharing a stage during the Balkans Music Festival on 5th November 2019 at Eventim Apollo, London. As if this wasn’t enough of a line-up, the audience will also get to experience the incredible and culturally-varied group, The Paprika Band.
Emir Kusturica is best known as a film maker of multiple internationally-recognised features, but is also an integral part of The No Smoking Orchestra, a Serbian gypsy punk band from the 90s. Goran Bregovic is of equal renown and is known to be the epitome of modern Balkan music, bringing the style to worldwide acclaim, whilst touring with his Wedding and Funeral Orchestra.
These groups of musicians will no doubt bring the lively party atmosphere of the Balkans straight to London, and it’s not an occasion to be missed. In Goran’s words: “If you don’t go crazy, you are not normal!”
