The great Balkan party at Razzmatazz
Emir Kusturica is probably the most significant artist from the Balkans and one of the most relevant in Europe. He is just as good a filmmaker as he is a musician, and it is the latter that interests us most for Cruïlla de Tardor.
Country rhythms, Turkish marches, gypsy trumpets, Italian classics, sounds from South America, loops of techno-pop, Balkan with punk undertones, gypsy traditions… Kusturica’s style is unique.
We’ll see him live, accompanied by The No Smoking Orchestra, with a new album and also his best-known hits. As of now, he’s already confirmed that he’ll play the soundtrack of some of his films, such as Black Cat, White Cat and Life Is A Miracle.
Barcelona Gipsy Balkan Orchestra
In the BGKO, there are no two members from the same place. They are a true representation of multi-ethnic music, a group playing klezmer and gypsy music with sounds from Eastern Europe.
They are seven nomads who understand Balkan music as something that goes beyond one particular border, because what makes this genre great is precisely the huge variety of cultures that created it.
BGKO have established themselves as a reference point for Balkan music in Barcelona, the city where the project was born and where they very quickly achieved international fame.
Now, we’ll see them again in the city where it all began. It’ll be on October 18 at Razzmatazz 1.
- 7:00PM: door opening.
- 8:30PM: Barcelona Gipsy Balkan Orchestra.
- 9:30PM: Emir Kusturica & The No Smoking Orchestra.
Ticket price for both concerts is €32 (in advance) or €37 (ticket booths).
