Goran Bregović Preconcert Panel Discussion:
Contemporary Balkan Music
Goran Bregović is an icon of Balkan music and one of many artists who has helped it cross boundaries of genre and geography to become a global phenomenon. Join us for a discussion about the ways in which contemporary Balkan musicians blend traditional folk melodies and rhythms with new technologies and modern musical elements to create an electrifying fusion. Learn what makes Balkan music distinctive and get a glimpse into the old and new “ingredients” artists like Bregović combine to create a truly special sound.
Seating is limited, and advance registration is highly recommended.
Access to the preconcert panel discussion is free with a concert ticket. Please be sure to have your concert ticket with you when checking in. Seats will be available for pre-registrants only until 6:35pm, at which point remaining seats will be released to those in the standby line.
