Fanfare Ciocarlia

The Romanian gypsy brass band was invited to play two consecutive shows at the Montréal Jazz Festival in July 2013.

I must thank the guys from Fanfara for the two amazing days I have spent with them. Great artists, warm folks.

The shows in Montreal were part of the band's North American tour.
