Goran Bregović

August 24, 2019 @ 20:00

Goran Bregović has received great reviews for his album titled Tri Pisma iz Sarajeva (Three Letters from Sarajevo), and he has played all over the world. Prestigious halls have hosted his Orkestar za Svadbe i Sahrane (Orchestra for Weddings and Funerals), and this summer, Sarajevo has the honor of hosting this great concert! The spectacle will take place on August 24 in the old fortress – Bijela Tabija (White Fortress) at Vratnik and it will be held under the patronage of the Administration of the City of Sarajevo. 


With the concert Tri Pisma iz Sarajeva (Three Letters from Sarajevo), Goran Bregović is sending a strong message from Sarajevo to the world that coexistence and tolerance are not just wants and desires, but they are inevitable and a reality, as we have always lived, we are living, and we will continue to live. A large symphony orchestra of the Sarajevo Philharmonic (59 musicians), a choir and the Goran Bregović orchestra (35 members), and the following top violinists will perform: Gershon Leizerson from Tel Aviv, Zied Zouari from Tunis and Mirjana Nešković from Belgrade. The special guest in the program is original group Sifet & Mehmed from Živinice. 


The music was composed by Goran Bregović, and it is music that connects different cultures (Christian, Jewish and Oriental) and represents the sounds of our region in a characteristic manner, connecting the East and the West. As part of the program of this year’s Sarajevo Film Festival, the documentary film Tri Pisma iz Sarajeva (Three Letters from Sarajevo) will also be screened, which was made while the album of the same name was being recorded. The camera tracked Bregović in the studio, and the scenes were shot in Sarajevo and Tuzla.
