the legends of gypsy brass

Fanfare Ciocarlia are a 24-legged brass beast whose eastern funk groove has torn up halls and festivals across the planet. Their energy and ingenuity having 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 Ciocarlia went on to conquer the USA, Europe, Asia and Australia. The Gypsies may only have spoken their local Romany dialect but their music spoke an international language and audiences responded to their fierce Balkan funk by turning concerts into parties. What Fanfare Ciocarlia played was something new. The Times of London described it as "a heavy, heavy monster sound" and Fanfare's recordings have taken their eerie Balkan groove into dance clubs across the planet.

“ was brutally exhilarating...”

“...the best party animal on the planet...The energy goes round in a figure of eight - out from the band into the audience who are jumping, waving, snogging and back into the band who drive it to further frenzy...”

Die Welt
“...Die Roma-Blaskapelle Fanfare Ciocarlia - eine Erfolgsgeschichte...”
