I came back to Montréal from Guca in 2014 determined to immerse myself in balkan brass band tradition. I had an overwhelming response from my brass colleagues at McGill and we formed our own “Trubaci”, a brass orkestar I started where we would learn from the field recordings I took while I was in Serbia. We recorded this one song I picked up from a young band who was competing at Guca and named it rather arbitrarily as is the custom when names are unknown, or simply because it is more common to identify songs by the origin. Nonetheless, my travel-mates and I named it Power Shower. We lived in the basement of a local lady’s house up the hill from the festival where many of the competing bands were also staying. The bands would practice outside our shower and this tune stuck with us the most.
