Goran Bregovic : Ya Ya

Chances are if you are not a film buff, exceedingly cultured, or from eastern Europe the name Goran Bregovic is an unfamiliar title. Nonetheless, it is a certainty that one of his compositions has reached you whether or not you were aware of it. The veteran Serbian composer has been a force in spreading the beauty of Balkan composition internationally and has left his imprint on the world by creating emotion filled ethnic symphonies many of which have been popularized through iconic gypsy films such as Time of the Gypsies and Arizona Dream. I got the chance to catch one of his shows while he was in Los Angeles several months ago and was blown away not only by some of the funkiest brass known to man but also the amazing energy that he and his band (the wedding and funeral orchestra) performed with giving even more life to his music. The track I am leaving you with, “Ya Ya”, is just one of an abundance of genius arrangements brought to us by Bregovic and is most definitely on my dance party playlist, fyi. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
