In the weekend that the infamous Serbian trumpet festival Guca celebrates its 50th anniversary, Lucy Duran is joined by the Boban & Marko Markovic Orchestra for an explosive session of Serbian Gypsy Brass music. The Boban & Marko Markovic Orchestra are one of the most highly decorated Serbian brass bands, and 22 year old band leader and trumpeter Marko Markovic tells Lucy about his musical family, and why you have to be Roma to play this music.
