About Goran Bregovic
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. When civil war started tearing Yugoslavia apart in 1990, Goran Bregovic found himself out of the rock star business. A multi-ethnic child of Sarajevo, born to a Serbian mother and a Croatian father, he fled to Paris.
He quickly gained attention for his vivid soundtrack work for over 30 movies. Of special acclaim is 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 Bregovic’s wild mélange of klezmer rock in Sacha Baron Cohen’s irreverent blockbuster film Borat, which only hinted at the experience of hearing Bregovic’s band live. This rollicking extravaganza is guaranteed to leave you cheering, with a song in your heart.
