Goran Bregovic & His Weddings & Funerals Orchestra

bregovicThursday June 11 7:30 PM

Prospect Park Bandshell
Brooklyn, NY

Sarajevo-born Goran Bregovic is a seminal figure in the Yogoslav rock world, a film composer who has been likened to Ennio Morricone and Nino Rota, and a collaborator of artists as varied as Iggy Pop and Cesária Évora. Kicking off his first North American tour at Celebrate Brooklyn with his enormous band—featuring brass, a classical string ensemble, an all-male choir and traditional Bulgarian and Roma singers—he marries the dance music of a raucous gypsy wedding with Eastern European choral arrangements in what Spain’s La Vanguardia has called, “a mind-blowing return trip with no destination or port of arrival…a magnificent concert, one of the greatest marvels to be heard on stage today.”

Goran Bregovic is presented with generous support from The Trust for Mutual Understanding.
