The label “a big band from a small village” seems true in every sense of the word when it comes to Fanfare Ciocarlia. Since they were founded in a Moldovian village in Romania, the 12 piece brass ensemble has grown into a global phenomenon performing all around the world. Now they embark on a big tour to celebrate their 25 year anniversary – and ALICE is happy to present a show in Valby Kulturhus!

Fanfare Ciocarlia’s unparalleled talent for alloying their Balkan brass with dashes of jazz, pop and rock, all performed with mad precision at breakneck tempos, has given them cult status and made them a permanent fixture in the music scene ranging from punk to classical. Two and a half decades, thousands of shows and 9 studio albums later, Fanfare Ciocarlia were at the pinnacle of their career when a pandemic shocked the world. And while the world seemed to be at a standstill, the band’s many fans became active and helped them to complete their long-planned 25th anniversary album with financial support and words of encouragement. Now the results can be heard: “It Wasn’t Hard To Love You” is a musical ode to Fanfare Ciocărlia’s legions of fans. It is the latest chapter in the story of a big band from a small village, a band that wants to put smiles on people’s faces, and a band that yearns for a long future of thrilling concerts extending deep into the night.
