Formed in Sarajevo in 1980, the No Smoking Orchestra was created as part of a political and cultural resistance movement against Yugoslavia's then President, Marshal Tito. The group is led by Nele Karajilic and sometimes features acclaimed Serbian filmmaker Emir Kusturica. After playing a series of concerts throughout Yugoslavia in the early 1980s, the group released its first album, Das ist Walter, in 1984. After the collapse of Yugoslavia in 1991, the group separated, only to reform again in 1994, this time with Kusturica's son Stribor on drums. The group provided the score for Kusturica's 1998 feature Black Cat, White Cat. In 2000, the filmmaker officially joined the band as guitarist, and together they released Unza Unza Time. In 2012, Kusturica received the Antonio Carlos Jobim Award from the Festival.
