(Underground - Masterpiece)
A slight change of pace tonight - a soundtrack. Underground, directed by Emir Kusturica is one of my favorite films of at least the last 25 years. I've seen it well over 15 times since it first came out. It is a remarkable film that was controversial at the time (1995) because it dealt with the situation in the region formerly known as Yugoslavia.
Aside from being drawn to the film for its point of view, absurdity and flawless execution, I was also wildly attracted to the frenzied soundtrack.
There is a genre of traditional music from the Serbo-Croatian region, in fact throughout all of Eastern Europe that provides the background for the action in the film.
This track Cajesukarije-Cocek combines traditional vocals along with the pulsing rhythm and horns that's the trademark for this genre.
It's not for all tastes. But me personally - I love it. Especially on a Sunday night.
