La portada de Unza unza time (2000)
La portada de Unza unza time (2000)

In the beginning at the boring time 
back in 1999 
The man killed the line 
between punishment and the crime 

On the planet Earth 
there was no more fun 
no sex no drugs no rock’n’roll 
all music turned to a fashion show 

White man had British pop 
and black man had soul 
But no, not a drop of a blood 
‘cause video killed the rock’n’roll 

and God said “Oh my God!” 
What’s happened to the human being 
What’s happened to my lovely creatures 
They all become a cold machine 
No more love no more power 
Machine without gasoline 
Wake up Wake up crowd 
Wake up from your boring dream 

There is lighting 

there is thunder 
What’s up with you I wonder 
Lift your shoulders 
stamp your feet 
produce the extra protein 
I’m gonna hit you hit you hit you hit you
hit you with my rythm stick 
So let there be light 
Let there be sound 
let there be a music divine 
It’s Unza Unza Unza Unza time

Así va el upgrade cosmogónico de la polifacética Emir Kusturica & No smoking orchestra en la canción que da nombre a este disco (“Unza unza time”) Link para descargar

¿Porqué Unza unza time? Además de la explicación del Dr. Narele (el vocalista) a continuación:

 

 

“The Unza Unza music is the product of sophisticated, state-of-the-art laboratories where attempts were being made at developing the atom bomb that was meant to protect the Balkan peoples’ integrity and sovereignty. What came out of those labs instead was a music that claimed to be the most effective way of producing extra proteins – those fundamental substances that control the most basic function of any living being: love. The Unza Unza music is a bunch of different musical flowers from the Balkans, bound up in a single rhythm of two quarter notes that is called Unza Unza after the sound of its beat. But, beware: the word Unza must be repeated at least twice, as in Unza Unza. Only by uttering it twice can the production of extra proteins be possible and effective. The results of scientific tests conducted on blood samples taken from people who had seen Emir Kusturica’s film Black Cat, Wild Cat – the first truly Unza Unza movie – have shown that when you listen to this music, the production of extra proteins is increased 7-fold, compared to when you eat, say, a lemon, honey, nuts or garlic, 8.4-fold compared to when you make love, or even 11-fold compared to when you make use of cocaine or other powerful drugs.

 

In their desire to help make it easier for humankind to produce extra proteins, scientists have declared the No Smoking band as the first band truly representative of Unza Unza music and have agreed to recruit them as the greatest generator of extra proteins.

If you want to help yourself or your loved ones, you should play the band’s CD every day and repeat to yourself the Unza Unza syntagma, for this is the best way to produce extra proteins. Your perseverance will be rewarded.

Through their research work, scientists have discovered that you need to dance to the rhythm of this music if you want to improve your production of extra proteins and discover the only truth that matters: “The dance is sex”.

-Dr Nele Karajilic, Institute for extra proteins investigations, Sokolac

encontré otra mucho más convencional sobre lo que significa este unza unza:  al parecer es la designación del estilo que toca la banda según Stribor Kusturica (el hijo de Emir) en alusión al “sonido rítmico de la guitarra cuando toca la danza folklórica Serbia en allegro 2/4 (ver explicación)”. Unza unza conforma, junto con la “versión balcánica de la rumba”, el estilo característico del grupo. Con música que incluye elementos de rock (que se remonta a los tiempos de Tito y la gran Yugoeslavia), jazz, tango, música gitana, pop y techno el arte de No smoking también es fruto de la casualidad, la guerra y la censura. Con miembros que se han separado (como el país), talento nuevo y la imagen mediática de Kusturica uniéndoseles en el camino No smoking pasó de ser un olvidado de la escena musical balcánica a todo un ensemble multicultural que ha conquistado muchos escenarios europeos y en el resto del mundo tal como puede verse en el documental Super 8 stories. Su discografía incluye:

Cuenta la leyenda que en la asediada Sarajevo la No Smoking sufría por los apagones y eso los obligó a incluir vientos, percusiones y otros intrumentos acústicos en sus ensayos. Sea o no cierto es lo de menos. Lo que importa es el resultado y para muestra un botón: el aire campechano y juguetón de canciones como “Was Romeo really a jerk”, “Pitbull terrier”, “Drang nach osten”, “Bella ciao” y un larguísimo etcétera. Que bueno que nos despertó la varita del ritmo con todo este unza unza unza unza time…
