The world-shaking 20th anniversary tour of the Kings of Balkan Brass

Emerging two decades ago from an isolated village in rural Romania, the unstoppable Fanfare Ciocarlia have become a global phenomenon, revolutionizing brass music and influencing artists in genres from world to classical to rock to jazz. Fanfare Ciocarlia’s unmistakable sound, their unique repertoire and techniques, have enriched the world music scene while also influencing classical music, EDM, rock and jazz. Why are Fanfare Cicocarlia beloved across the world? Because they never fail to deliver the wildest parties, the phattest Balkan beats and and the deepest Gypsy soul. Making a special stop in Abu Dhabi on the 20th anniversary world tour they’re calling Onward to Mars!, the band’s legendary “wall of sound” will shake the walls of NYU Abu Dhabi and bring the crowd to its feet!

“…the Romanians managed to invade, colonise and convert into a designated party zone.”
