Fanfara de la Cozmeşti
BRASS BAND FROM COZMEŞTI

Despite centuries of persecution, the gypsy musical tradition still thrives throughout Europe in streets, bars and coffee houses. Fanfara de la Cozmeşti made up of 10 artists performs at religious events as well as social occasions. The music of the band is one of the many musical branches of this vibrant culture. Their music may be rooted in the military bands of 19th Century Ottoman Empire, but tunes like „Cântecul Miresei”, „Bătuta” and „Sârba verişorilor” are polyrhythmic, Eastern influenced and often raucously cheerful.
