Goran Bregović, the Yugoslav musician, of Serbian and Croatian descent, is perhaps one of the most internationally known modern composers of the Balkans. Bregović's music carries both South Slavic and Romani themes and is a fusion of European classicism, popular music with traditional polyphonic music from the Balkans, tango and brass bands. He rose to fame with better known scores for Emir Kusturica’s films (Time of the Gypsies, Arizona Dream, Underground).
Among those great film music scores, Mesecina is an example of typical Bregovic music style: Balkan rhythm and folk song spirit. Furthermore, it perfectly complemented Emir Kusturica’s 1995 world-acclaimed film “Underground” (Golden Palm at the Cannes Film Festival).
