The Children From the Brass Band Village

Ljiljana Prvulović

A little Roma village in southern Serbia has 70 households, 6 well-known brass bands, 60 professional musicians, and around 100 instruments. While the men are away making their living, only women and children remain in the village. The children play with old, broken instruments. Ljiljana Prvulović’s documentary talks about these children and about the beginnings of their musical career in this ‘brass band village’. For some of them, this will become their lifetime profession.
