Serbia – an audio travelogue (Resonance FM)

A view of Belgrade from the top floor hallway of one of the East Gate towers

Our affinity for the Balkans started more than a year ago when we first set out to explore the music scene of this for us totally unfamiliar country – at least until then (in spite of the fact that half of Lucia’s family lives there).

Serbia is perhaps the most economically and politically disadvantaged, dealing with the legacy of its past and relative isolation in European terms. Thus, we were intrigued by its music scene and the opinions and current context as viewed by the new generation of creators.

Politics, society, past and present, all this features in the hour-long documentary – a result of painstaking editing of the heaps of audio material that we amassed during our two visits – and gnd’s two months’ sojourn in Belgrade (he liked it so much the first time he decided to come back next year and stay).
