11 August – A Legendary Name of Balkan Music
Goran Bregovic and The Wedding & Funeral Band, whose previous Istanbul concerts have all sold out, invite their fans to an unforgettable night of music with their magnificent repertoire. Bregovic will take the stage with songs from over 20 of his albums, including the cult soundtracks of Emir Kusturica’s Underground, Time of the Gypsies and Arizona Dream. Bregovic was born the son of a Serbian mother and a Croatian father in 1950 in Sarajevo. He has drawn a large audience by bringing a modern, Western interpretation to traditional Balkan music. The concert takes place at Harbiye Cemil Topuzlu Open Air Stage at 9 p.m.
