Kusturica – a hero of our time who doesn't need to be introduced. His enormous talent and substandard view of the world is expressed not only in his brilliant movies which includes such masterpieces of the world cinema as “Time of the Gypsies”, “Black Cat, White Cat”, “Life is a Miracle” and other but as well in his unique and attractive music appropriate to his fiery energetic culture. 

“All my actions lead to the one – a desire to belong anyone but myself and act according to my conscience. I live for my joy and I do what brings me satisfaction – cinema and music; moreover, I never stop to move forward because it is a bad manner. It is necessary to always set the bar higher, to request yourself for more and desire more. If you want something a lot, the whole world will contribute for your success,” explains the genius from the former Yugoslavia Emir Kusturica.
