    I have a friend who's from Romania, his name is Mihai, and I discovered romanian folk music thanks to him! It's really unique, I like it :)

    I'm interested in balcanic music and culture in general, especially the carnival masks from the Carpazi area (the mountains)

    Gogol Bordello isn't romanian at all...
    gerva you said you are interested in balcanic popular music or what?
    those masks you said you are interested in are not carnival ones....
    people used them at big celebrations in the past, like Christmas, New year's Eve and Dragobete(a kind of Valentine's day)
    also, they are used at funerals and weddings
    here we have no carnivals, in the occidental acception of this word!
    please gerva don't use the word blacanic when talking about romania! we are not balcanic!!(like grece, macedonia, and so....)

    First of all i wanna know if everybody is talking about the same thing: folk music like traditional romanian music or folk musc like kind of hippy music. Second: romania is not a balcanic country (but probabely u know that from geography)...third: Dragobete is not at all a kind of Valentine`s is an ancient celebration of fertility at birds and animals....more than one time a year.
    Ok...romanian folk music (whatever u mean by that) is amazing beautiful but u just have to find the good folk music. For details contact me....

    if u want some authentic romanian music u can search for artists like maria tanase, maria lataretu...or tudor my opinion the best authentic romanian song is ciocarlia...this song inspired many artists like goran bregovic...the way the song is played...soooooo makes u wanna go and dance...
    it's true...the old and good romanian music is going down...soon romania will become buried under manele...and that's sad...

    Yeah, it's really sad that good old romanian music is getting "extinct" because of manele..But there still are some bands that keep it alive, and i'm not talking necessarily about folk, but about rock for example. Some real good romanian rock bands would be Iris, Vama Veche(separated into Vama and Trupa veche, but still), Celelate Cuvinte, Phoenix(a bit folk too), Taxi and others like these bands which are at least 20 years old. Besides the oldies there are some new bands like Luna Amara, Negura Bunget, Azepam(really new in my city) and many others. If you want romanian songs contact me ;)
