‘Screaming horns and earthshaking rhythms, Opa! brings the unfettered sound of the Balkans to Melbourne.’
Opa Bato! is the only ‘Trubacki Orkestar’ in Australia, performing authentic contemporary Balkan brass music from the rich traditions of Serbia, Macedonia and beyond. Since the early 1800s, this music, with its energetic rhythms, soaring melodies and wild Turkish-influenced improvisations, has accompanied major events in the cultural life of these regions. Dushan Mitrovic, a composer and performer originally from Serbia/Czech Republic, formed Opa Bato! to showcase the unique fusion of European and Oriental conceptions of this music.
