Fanfara Transilvania. Rumania

Fanfara Transilvania is a fantastic and more appreciated Balkan-Gypsy-Brass band from Romania,Transilvania is historical region of “Dracula”.
Somewhere in the foothills of Dealul Cetatii (Stronghold Hill), located in the Carpathian Mountains there is a town called Cugir. Next to an old arms factory, close to the ancient Dacian fortress known as Sigidava.
There is the point on the map where the traditional gypsy brass band Fanfara Transilvania sprung into life sometime in 2008.The group is made up of 10 musicians; members include brothers and cousins,godparents and godfathers who transmit their passion for tradition and community values from father to son thus preserving their rich musical heritage.
These traditions have been kept alive for centuries and Fanfara Transilvania play something peculiar for this old province: brass music combining the traditions of ancient gypsy music, executed at breathtaking speed (up to 200 beats per minute) with those of the Balkans, producing wonderful rhythmical tunes.
