Fanfare is a gypsy brass band from Romania that I discovered using the app Shazam. I was watching a documentary on Gogol Bordello and heard this crazy music in the background so I whipped out my phone, fired up Shazam and sure enough, the band playing was Fanfare Ciocarlia.

The video above was taken from their show in Pittsburgh but we also got to see them here in DC a couple of days later with the kids. They are releasing new music in January and have already committed to DC and we will be there.
