Ecstasy and sorrow are merely touchstones in the music of Serbo-Croatian bandleader Goran Bregovic. Along with his ever-shifting Wedding and Funeral Band, the 59-year-old composer taps into seemingly untold centuries of unrestrained emotion: from boisterous, blind-drunk abandon, matched by brassy crash-boom-bang and odd meters that wiggle like a rattlesnake, to a heart-burdened melancholy that can be consoled only by keening female voices and the gutsy rumble of the tuba's grave, long tones.
