Embassy Hosts Cello Rock Band Break of Reality

U.S. Embassy Podgorica was thrilled to host the classical cello rock band Break of Reality during their September 12-15 tour of Montenegro, made possible through the U.S. State Department’s Arts Envoy Program.  The band’s signature sound bridges the gap between classical and rock music by bringing together adaptations music by Bach, bluegrass, contemporary rock, as well as the well-known Game of Thrones theme song.

The band also performed traditional Montenegrin and Albanian songs during their performances in Herceg Novi as a part of Street Art Festival, in Ulcinj as a part of Belcanto Dolcinio International Music Festival, in Bar as a part of the Bar Summer Scene, and in Podgorica as a part of Podgorica Cultural Summer.  Break of Reality also spent time with music students throughout their Montenegro tour, engaging with them during workshops which focused on musical improvisation.
