Note: because of a silly mistake on my part, there's some speech missing at about 0:04:40. It introduces one of Serbia's biggest stars and one of the best-known names in all of Balkan Brass, Boban Marković, who won the coveted “First Trumpet” prize at the 2000 Guča Trumpet Festival, becoming the first musician ever to receive a perfect score from all five jury members in its 40-year history. Marko is Boban's son, not Maleshevski Melos'.
