emir kusturica and no smoking orchestra

December 4, 2008

Life is a miracle…I don´t really think i have to write about Kusturica…everybody heard about his movies and music. Still, i want to add this post to advertise the movie, one movie with extreme realism and very accurate characters from real life. When poverty, family drama and promiscuity touch one´s destiny,  in times of war, life is still a miracle.

And now, since I know that the main 2 authors of this blog enjoy this music and kusturica´s movies, here is another one…

A good example for thinking twice at the manele phenomenon. The interpretation is essential.

Shantel – a German in search of his roots

June 16, 2008

This perfectly respectable German music producer came to Bucovina to find out about his roots and got himself a brand new style – a balkan fusion something. Anyway, it’s cute if you don’t know much about Romanian traditional music and what it’s all about.
