Sounds of Summer: New Music Documentaries 2014

Brasslands is a joyful documentary that captures the lively spirit of Balkan brass music. Unique to Serbia, it features lightning-fast rhythms and an infectious, celebratory energy—both abundantly evident in the world’s largest trumpet competition, which attracts a half-million music fans from around the world, local favorites, and even an unlikely band from New York.

    This is a great film for fans of Balkan music. The Q&A with filmmakers and the subjects of movie was engaging.
