Fanfare Ciocarlia, Womad, Womadalaide, 2015

Fanfare Ciocârlia is a popular twelve-piece Romani Balkan brass band from the northeastern Romanian village of Zece Prăjini. The band is made up of Roma musicians, and they are recognised as one of Europe's most popular contemporary Romani bands. Fanfare Ciocârlia are best known for a very fast, high-energy sound, with complex rhythms and high-speed, staccato clarinetsaxophone and trumpet solos, sometimes performed at more than 200 beats per minute
