Glorious Romani-esque brass album... It's extremely fun and bursting at the seams with creativity and life.

Does anyone have any information, opinions or questions about this album, or the band that made it ? If so, don´t go keeping it to yourself - post away !

I must admit I spotted this one a while ago in the iTunes store and I thought - my god an entire album of brass ensemble what could me more torturous? Well turns out my anti-brass bias was rather unfair and unfounded in this case at least. I loved this album. Fanfare Ciocărlia are a twelve piece Romanian brass ensemble (Ciocărlia being Romanian for skylarking apparently) formed around 1996. Iag Bari is just so damn joyful I couldn't help smiling and bobbing along. One track even features the Bulgarian Womens Choir from the Huun Huur Tu album Fly Fly My Sadness. I don't know if there's much insight I can offer but give it a listen if you haven't already. I'm giving it an excellent.

Glad to hear that you overcame an initial reluctance and started to enjoy this album. I´m also not an enthusiast of cheerful brass band music. In fact I´ve been waiting to be in the mood for this album, but it still hasn´t happened, tbh.

I did dip into a couple of tracks, and that felt like that was enough for the moment. Doesn´t seem fair to vote on the album on the basis of such a brief acquaintance, so I´m going to hold off until I am ready to enjoy this apparently infectious music.
