A Canadian in Belgrade

Serge Denoncourt is a well-known theatre director in Quebec.

But his most recent project took him far from home... to Belgrade, Serbia.

He worked with Roma (or Gypsy) youth, to create a musical, called GRUBB (Gypsy Roma Urban Balkan Beats).

Find out how the experience has changed his life... and the lives of the Roma.

And hear a review of GRUBB The Musical.

Listen to the program

The music from GRUBB  is available on CD and through itunes.
