Emir Kusturica & The No Smoking OrchestraGruppo formato da alcuni componenti dei Zabranjeno Pušenje con al basso il regista Emir Kusturica

The eastern part released one new album as Zabranjeno Pušenje. It was then renamed Emir Kusturica & No Smoking Orchestra and released four more albums and continued touring all around the world. In 1998 the No Smoking Orchestra composed the music for Emir Kusturica's film "Black Cat, White Cat", which won the Silver Lion at the Venice Film Festival the same year.

Although they enjoy success worldwide, in Serbia their new ethno sound was poorly received. Their fans refused to accept rebranding of the band as ethno/folk musicians. In 2004 they were forced off stage by rebellious fans throwing anything they could find after only 40 minutes of performance.[citation needed] The concert was organized as the anniversary of "Zabranjeno Pusenje" band, but they haven't played a single Zabranjeno Pusenje's song - they rather played all new "Non Smoking Orchestra" songs.
