Emir Kusturica & The No Smoking Orchestra

No longer available

The Civic


Serbian Emir Kusturica & The No Smoking Orchestra are beholden to no showbiz dogma but their own. Genre-defying, irreverent and ever-so-slightly mad, they will entertain, provoke, and amuse you with their frantic ‘unza, unza’ Balkan versions of rumba, rock and gypsy music when they play a one-night-only concert at The Civic.

Audiences across Europe have thoroughly embraced the explosive mix of nitroglycerine sounds generated by this cult-movie maestro (he’s won two Palmes d’Or at Cannes) and the anarchic energy of his Belgrade band. You’ll love it too!

Experience pure exuberance and rhythms that make it impossible for you to stay in your seat. Get to Emir Kusturica & The No Smoking Orchestra – they’re just the ticket. 

★★★★★ The world’s wildest, most joyous and most unrestrained music.
