goran bregovic weddings and funerals orchestra

June 14, 2009 :: Comment

today, we went to a goran bregovic concert from the former yugoslavia at ravinia. lots of fun. ravinia is a great venue for concerts in chicago. sound quality certainly is not audiophile approved but they bring some great performances and somehow sharing the joy of music with so many people is a lot of fun.

bregovic also did the film score for the movie underground. to this day, one of the most fun movies i have ever seen. some of our friends played this music at our wedding party in tokyo.
