“A musical spectacle unlike anything else on North American stages” (San Francisco Chronicle), the sublime madness of Goran Bregović and his Wedding and Funeral Orchestra is back for a dizzying, ecstatic reprise! This trans-Balkan musical feast features Gypsy brass players, Bulgarian vocalists and conservatory-trained string players from Belgrade in a kaleidoscope of action, color and intoxicating beats.

As the founder of Bijelo Dugme (White Button), guitarist Bregovic brought a bracing jolt of rock & roll to the Balkans in the mid-70s, selling millions of albums across the region while giving voice to a generation stifled by communist conformity. A multi-ethnic child of Sarajevo, born to a Serbian mother and a Croatian father, he fled to Paris, where he quickly gained attention for his vivid soundtrack work for over 30 movies, including director Emir Kusturica’s surreal 1993 film Arizona Dream, starring Johnny Depp and featuring the vocals of punk legend Iggy Pop. Many Americans first experienced Bregović’s wild mélange of klezmer rock in Sacha Baron Cohen’s irreverent blockbuster film Borat, which only hinted at the experience of hearing his band live. A multi-night run is a rarity, so each night will be different, performing music from across Bregović’s career and focusing on material from his new Universal album Three Letters from Sarajevo.
