The famous Balkan composer Goran Bregovic was in Cyprus on September 1st for a concert in Nicosia as part of his "Alcohol Tour" hitting several European cities. Bregovic performed along with his 8-piece "Weddings and Funerals" orchestra, composed of Alen Ademovi (vocals - drums), Bokan Stankovi (first trumpet), Dalibor Luki (second trumpet), Stojan Dimov (multi reed player), Aleksandar Rajkovi and Milo Mihajlovi playing first and second baritone horns, and the two Bulgarian sisters Daniela and Ludmila Radkova, singing in traditional dress.

The band made an unconventional and theatrical entrance in the open concert area. The four brass players entered behind the audience from different directions one after another, unplugged, playing a slow traditional Balkan theme with absolute synchronization surprising the audience. People were looking around trying to figure out where the music was coming from.

And then, the feast began! Fast, rhythmical music, makes it hard for people not to get up and dance. The crowd was cheering and dancing as one hit was followed with another. Many Bregovic's songs are very familiar to Greek and Cypriot audiences since they have been vocalized by famous Greek artists in the past, during a period when Yugoslavians were facing the cruel face of war, domestic and international violence and poverty.

It wasn't long before the mainly young audience moved to the edge of the stage right in front of the famous composer, he then played some of his most loved songs with the fans dancing, singing along and going home after having a great time watching the legend of Balkan music perform in their city.

Bregovic has recently released a new album called "Alkohol - sljivovica/champagne." Next stops for his "Alcohol tour" are Salonika, Athens, Prague, Geneva and Cannes.
