Trubači is the Serbian word for brass musicians. These mobile ensembles are used to celebrate life and its most significant celebrations: birthdays, engagements, weddings, departures for army service, funerals and anything else folks can think of. The music they play is best described as danceable and cover repertoire from many parts of the region and the world from trad to pop.
Opa! Bato is a Melbourne-based Balkan brass band which recreates the atmosphere of the Guca Festival – quite possibly the world’s biggest brass band competition in terms of visitors to the small Serbian town every European summer. Celebrate life!
