For those not familiar with Kusturica, he is a native of Sarajevo and arguably the most famous film director from the Balkans. His films (“Time of the Gypsies”, “Black Cat, White Cat”, and “Underground”, which won the top prize at the Cannes Film Festival Palme d’Or/Golden Palm in the 1994) often feature music soundtracks by Goran Bregović and the No Smoking Orchestra.
