Fanfare Ciocarlia

New album Onwards To Mars!

Fanfare Ciocărlia’s energy and ingenuity have won them fans from Melbourne to Memphis, Tokyo to Toulouse. Having learnt their craft at the feet of their fathers and grandfathers Fanfare’s members proudly approach every concert as a challenge to both entertain audiences and keep the true spirit of Gypsy music alive.

Fanfare Ciocărlia’s roots lie in the “hidden” village of Zece Prăjini in north-eastern Romania. Zece Prăjini’s isolation—situated in a misty valley whose dirt roads are occupied by eighty Gypsy farming families—meant that under communism the village remained hidden from the outside world. Somehow the ancient Ottoman tradition of brass bands accompanying armies, weddings, and funerals continued to exist here when it had long died out in the rest of Romania. And when Henry Ernst, a young German music fan, wandered into the village in 1996 he found a living tradition that he knew the world would embrace.

Fanfare Ciocărlia—whose name translates as “lark’s song”—conquered Europe in 1997, their furious live blast appealing to punks and headbangers, jazz and funk fans, world music aficionados, and those who simply love music that sounds absolutely unique.
