Guca, a truba performs at the famous trumpet festival in Serbia

Guča Trumpet Festival


Held annually in a small town in the heart of Serbia, the festival is a raucous celebration of gypsy music and Serbian culture and is like nothing else on Earth. The stars of the show are the trubača (trumpets and other brass instruments) and the men who play them, trubas, who may play for days, weeks, even months without rest in between.
