Fanfare Ciocârlia, the world-renowned Romanian brass band, brings to London the lively vibes and pure joy so characteristic of them. Fanfare Ciocârlia are the kings of hot Gypsy Brass with lightning speed, sophisticated arrangements, infectious energy and raw power to make you dance.
Hailing from a small village, Zece Prăjini, in the east of Romania near Moldova, Fanfare have toured the world extensively for over twenty years: they have taken their Gypsy groove to festivals and dance clubs across the planet, raw and remixed. Fanfare Ciocârlia‘s energy and their horns are blistering and their performance will blow you out of this world.
This is the World Premiere performance of Taraf de Impex specially commissioned for EUROPALIA Arts Festival. Taraf de Impex is an electrifying new Gypsy culture clash. Seven members of the original lăutari legends Taraf de Haidouks team up with musicians, led by Andrei Dinescu, from Bucharest’s underground jazz and electronica scene to make sparks fly.
The humongous Romanian Gypsy double bill, the likes of which you will have never experienced before, will keep you dancing for the rest of the year!
With DJ Sacha Dieu.
