Balkan music performer and composer Goran Bregovic will be in Bucharest for a concert on September 30th at Arenele Romane. He will perform alongside Weddings and Funerals Orchestra. The concert is part of the second edition of the inter-cultural festival Baro Foro.

With a career spanning more than 45 years, Bregovic has collaborated in time with Iggy Pop, Eugene Hutz (Gogol Bordello) or Cesaria Evora and composed the soundtrack for Emir Kusturica’s films Time of the Gypsies, Arizona Dream and Underground.

His latest album, titled Champagne for Gypsies, was launched three years ago. The music mixes influences from tango to brass and is inspired from the culture of the Balkans.
