For some inexplicable reason, I got the tune to Goran Bregovic‘s “Borino Oro” stuck in my head today. I haven’t been listening to his music much recently, but I decided to revisit some of his songs. Bregovic’s songs can best be described as Serbian folk music, which one doesn’t hear much of on the radio. How did I discover his music? I first heard it over four years ago when watching the movie Underground with my roommate at the time. The theme song to the movie was a Bregovic song called “Kalasnjikov” about everyone’s favorite rifle. Thanks to YouTube, I managed to find a bunch of people dancing to that song at a party along with an orchestral version performed by the Athens Symphony Orchestra. Of course, there were also other songs from Balkanica lurking in the YouTube pool. There was even a version of “Ederlezi,” which reliable sources indicate is part of the soundtrack to the new Borat movie. Chenkui!
