Wild gypsy beats from the Romanian suburbs

Having ripped up stages across the USA and Europe, Romanian roots rockers Mahala Rai Banda are to blast stages all over the world with their fierce Gypsy funk. The 11-piece brass band’s blend of hard Balkan brass with minor key violin & accordion melodies has made them as a force to be reckoned with. Having taken shape on the mean streets of Bucharest, Mahala Rai Banda’s sound is 21st Century Gypsy music: rooted in tradition but with hints of dub and soul, Turkish and Arabic assimilated into their roaring dance mix. When Mahala Rai Banda hit the stage ancient Gypsy campfire tunes blend with the raucous din of Balkan Mafia clubs.

MAHALA RAI BANDA @ Cambridge Festival 2011



“Fast and furious dance floor work-outs with a rock-solid up tempo groove, frenetic horn riffs and punchy Roma scat singing”

Evening Standard
“Mahala Rai Banda play rough-edged, cheek-puffing Balkan brass, full of larger-than-life energy. Enjoy the party!”

“...They kicked serious brass arse, making the crowd feel like they’d gate-crashed the Romanian wedding of the year...”
