Anca Pop feat. Goran Bregovic "Ederlezi"
We have something a little special for you today. Ederlezi, the signature song of Roma communities of the Balkans now has a new dance version by Anca Pop, featuring Goran Bregovic. The name given to the most important music festival celebrated by gypsies to symbolize the coming of spring and summer, when the opportunity to travel would re-appear. The Roma would thank God by throwing flowers into the rivers and seas.
The original song was recorded by Goran Bregovic in 1988 for his band Bijelo Dugme, then most popular rock band in former Yugoslavia. Later, Ederlezi became world known when Goran recorded it as a soundtrack for Emir Kusturica’s „Time Of The Gypsies” (winner of Best Director and nominated for Palme D’or, at Cannes 1989).
This new dance remake of Ederlezi, written by Anca Pop, Cristian Tarcea (Monoir „Violin Song”) and Goran Bregovic will give this loved classic exposure to new audiences and at the same time serve as a real unexpected treat for those who know and love the song already. Enjoy!
