Balkan superstar and WOMADelaide 2013 favourite Goran Bregović returns to Australia this May to debut his critically acclaimed new work, Three Letters from Sarajevo!

Goran Bregović has done it all. A rock star in the former Yugoslavia, he went on to write film scores and ride the fashion for brassy Balkan Gypsy music, selling over 6 million albums and collaborating with everyone from Iggy Pop to the Gipsy Kings. Anyone who has experienced a concert by the Balkan virtuoso knows that they are triumphant affairs; expressing a love of music that is utterly infectious. A dedicated explorer of musical cultures, this composer, bandleader, singer and musician is nothing if not eclectic. His world-famous Wedding & Funeral Band displays the cathartic power of a live music experience through the seamless blend of Gypsy-Balkan brass, folk percussion, vivacious Bulgarian vocals for a euphoric, uplifting sound.

Alongside this Australian debut of Bregović’s critically acclaimed new work Three Letters from Sarajevo the prolific composer and his band will also perform a mixed repertoire of three decades of beloved and favourite tunes from his vast and eclectic catalogue.
