Fanfare Ciocarlia: For 20 years the Kings of Balkan Brass have been touring continuously around the globe and whipping audiences into a joyyous frenzy! What was, until 1996, an unknown Gypsy band from an isolated village in rural Romania has developed into a world music supergroup. Over the past 20 years Fanfare Ciocarlia have revolutionized brass music and set standards for musicians and bands from all musical genres. Hailing from a tiny village in north east Romania, Fanfare have gone on to conquer the world's stages with their hugely exciting performances while each album has topped the European World Music charts, driven DJs crazy and inspired countless imitators. Now, with "Onwards To Mars", Fanfare Ciocarlia take another giant leap forward: here the band both dig deep into their rural Romanian roots while demonstrating what they have learned on their travels. Long standing fans will appreciate the band's earthy roots music with two traditional Romanian songs sung by senior member Radulescu Lazar (Un Tzigan Avea O Case and Trenul Masina Mica) and the very slow Balkan Blues of Doina. Fans will also recognise a new arrangement of Mista Lobaloba, a longtime favourite. Things get intriguing when Fanfare cover Bunica Bate Toba by hugely popular Moldovian Rock band Zdob si Zdub. And they go completely crazy when they invite Romanian Gypsy Blues singer Iulian Canaf to sing the classic Screaming Jay Hawkins tune, I Put A Spell On You! Another collaboration is Fiesta de Negritos; Fanfare Ciocarlia recorded this in Medellin together with Puerto Candelaria, one of Colombia's leading Cumbia bands. Dig the Latin-Balkan groove! There are also seven tunes here by celebrated composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist Koby Israelite, four of which he composed specifically for the 24-legged brass beast.

Orchester Praevica: Resistance is futile, this Turbo Folk! High energy dance music drawing on the tradition of Eastern European Czardas and Gypsy Swing, but widely influenced by jazz and blues. Under the direction of Slovak born and raised guitarist and singer Tomá Drgo this band delivers honest, authentic and entertaining mix of folklore, jazz and dance music suitable for everything from upscale clubs to dives, jazz festivals to mosh pits, arts receptions to underground galleries. Orchester Praevica has shared stage with the Hungarian Gypsy folk supergroup Parno Graszt, the Romanian Gypsy brass legends Fanfare Ciocarlia, Serbian Boban and Marko Markovic Orkestra, the frantic DC outfit Black Masala, and other greats on the "not so mainstream" music scene.
