It's the kind of battle of the bands to have any fan of Balkan brass music salivating. Serbia's Boban & Marki Markovic Orchestra go head to head with Fanfare Ciocarlia from Romania. Both get to strut their stuff and show what kind of chops they have here, coming together to perform "James Bond Theme," "Asfalt Tango," "Devla," and a pair of others to thrilling, glossy effect, and each offering a take on the classic "Caravan." Each group has its style, which becomes immediately identifiable when heard next to the competition, but they're both thrilling and packed with virtuosic playing.
