Goran Bregović & His Wedding And Funeral Band says
The trans-Balkan musical extravaganza that is Goran Bregović and his Wedding and Funeral Band has been dubbed a "musical spectacle unlike anything else on North American stages” (San Francisco Chronicle) and they "brought down the house" at their last Carnegie Hall appearance. The band features Gypsy brass players, led by legendary guitarist and composer Bregović.

Bregović rose to fame as the founding member of Bijelo Dugme (White Button), one of the biggest rock acts to come out of the former Yugoslavia. Founded in 1974, they sold millions of albums across the region, shaking things up with their Balkan-infused hard rock that gave voice to a generation stifled by communist conformity. Bregović established himself as a solo artist beginning in 1990, and became renowned for his soundtrack work in particular, composing for more than thirty films including "Arizona Dream" (1993) — which united him with Iggy Pop — and his introduction to North American audiences in Sascha Baron Cohen's controversial blockbuster "Borat." He's also worked with pop idol/avant garde influencer Scott Walker, the Gypsy Kings, Turkish icon Sezen Aksu and more, and his latest album, "Three Letters from Sarajevo," is forthcoming.
