Goran Bregovic & The Wedding and Funeral Band: Music for Films | 08/09/2018 | 21.00 | SNFCC
Parklife concert series welcomes to Stavros Niarchos Park Goran Bregović & The Wedding and Funeral Band, alongside a ten-member string and vocal ensemble, in a live performance featuring the composer’s timeless original soundtrack music.
A contemporary composer, traditional-music artist and rock star all at once, Goran Bregović has created music that is rooted in tradition yet global and unmistakably his own. In his concert at the Great Lawn, he is presenting selections of the film music that made him so popular all around the world. From Time of the Gypsies, in which Bregović honed his craft in music dramaturgy introducing gypsy music elements, to Arizona Dream, in which Emir Kusturica directed Faye Dunaway, Jerry Lewis and Johnny Depp, and Bregović wrote music for the godfather of punk, Iggy Pop.
The composer will also perform music from Patrice Chéreau’s riveting film Reine Margot, starring Isabelle Adjani, and Bregović’s third collaboration with Kusturica, Underground (Best Film – Cannes Film Festival 1995).
On stage, Bregović, dressed in white, surrounded by his amplifier, laptop and electric guitar, weaves gypsy horns, percussion, Bulgarian polyphonies and a male choir. For some 20 years now, he has been giving concerts on five continents, in an ongoing tour counting more than 1500 shows to date.
