|SINGLE Fanfare Ciocarlia vs. G-Flux Alili (7" vinyl)|
|Alili goes cumbia! Romania’s beloved Fanfare Ciocarlia vs G-Flux from Mexico! The Mexi-Balkan connection is nothing new. These two cultures have been dancing and partying together with a mutual love of mustaches, accordions, brass instruments, and oompah beats for over a hundred years now. Mariachi influences have always played a part in Balkan pop music and the Austro-Hungarian polka influence that descended into Mexico via Germanic immigration in the 19th century can still be heard today in tejano, conjunto, Tex-Mex, quebradita, banda, ranchera, and norteño music all over Mexico. Currently Mexico City is now once again embracing the brass-band folk of the Balkans. Producer G-Flux puts a spin on one of Fanfare Ciocarlia’s most recognizable songs, “Alili,” bring things full-circle.
Released by Electric Cowbell Records – 2015 , Format 7" vinyl
