Fanfare Ciorcarlia

at den Atelier Doors: 7:00 pm


Fanfare Ciocarlia is a gypsy brass band from Romania. Casual observers may wonder how Fanfare Ciocarlia’s roaring Balkan funk could possibly fuse with flamenco guitars or accordion driven music? Zece Prajini’s musical magicians shrug off such concerns, noting that they share elements of language, experience, and an almost indescribable yet very Gypsy musical synergy with virtually any kind of music. Hungarian music has permeated northern Romania for centuries, while Yugoslav and Bulgarian music came from encounters with travelling Gypsy communities or on pirate cassettes. And jazz and pop flavours long filtered through closed borders… From these sources and their own ancient Gypsy roots, Zece Prajini’s musicians built Fanfare Ciocarlia. Romania’s brass dervishes share tales of life, love and loss and celebrate diversity. This is enormous fun…
