Trubaci - A Lemon Bucket Orkestra Workshop

  • Drom taberna 458 Queen Street West Toronto, ON, M5V 2A8 Canada (map)

We love balkan wedding music (as if that’s a big surprise to anyone) and we want to share what we’ve learned over the years from some of the greats like Boban Markovic, Fanfare Ciocarlia, and Kocani Orkestar.

And thanks to the good people of DROM TABERNA, we have a space to do it in!

So over the course of 4 WEDNESDAYS in OCTOBER we’re going to learn 8 songs that are essential to any balkan wedding. Some of them you might recognize from LBO shows, some from LBO weddings, and some might be new. They are:

This is a workshop for ANYONE who plays brass (tuba, trombone, baritone, trumpet, flugel), woodwinds (saxes and clarinets), or percussion (marching drum, snare, darbuka). We’ll provide SHEET MUSIC for those of you who read and RECORDINGS for those that learn by ear. And you will have them forever to practice with at home.

Our goal isn’t going to be to replicate a Bregovic album exactly, but to piece together the songs and give you some language that will give our ensemble that badass balkan sound for…
