As soon as the 11 Allstars of Gypsy Brass enter a stage - be it in Tokyo, Moscow, Melbourne, Helsinki, London or Berlin - and set off their dazzling musical fireworks one can notice the audience going through astounding changes: entire rows of seats are spontaneously shifted aside, hats and skirts whirl through the air and even the stiffest guy finds himself dancing away to the most tricky Balkan rhythms so easily.

With their 6th CD-release the Gypsy brass band Fanfare Ciocarlia gives an exquisite taste of the incomparable experience of seeing Romania's musical export hit live on stage. The one-hour-long live recording of a concert in the "Kesselhaus der Kulturbrauerei" in Berlin-Prenzlauer Berg will not only delight devoted fans.

As a bonus the DVD "Gypsy Brass Legends - The Story of the Band" released on Asphalt Tango Records back in 2004 is also included. Amongst others the DVD contains the acclaimed movie "Iag Bari - Brass on Fire" and gives an insight into the life in and the music of Zece Prajini, meanwhile famous hometown to Fanfare Ciocarlia.
