Goran was born in Sarajevo to a Serbian mother and Croatian father.

On this week’s Global Notes, we meet Balkan music superstar Goran Bregovic. His raucous 40-piece band includes a large brass contingent, a male choir from Belgrade and traditional Bulgarian singers.

While Bregovic concerts are known to break out into massive dance parties, when he comes to Symphony Center on Friday, the audience will have to behave themselves. He tells Jerome and Radio M host Tony Sarabia what to expect.
