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.

Kino – Videli Noch’

Zdob si Zdub – Videli Noch’



June 4, 2008

I discovered them on, almost 2 years ago, and now they are number one in my top played artists there.

When I listen to their music I feel like they aree my brothers and they sing about my home and I start to feel like missing it… maybe somewhere in Russia, even if I’ve never been there.

Songs: Telema, Bosonova Karen, Jelem (Romany anthem), Sare Patria, Shel Me Versty, Cherry Tree, Good Day, Gypsies, Gambrinus, The Angel Takes Off.
