[PHOTOS] Fanfare Ciocarlia @ The Hoxton | 2012 Small World Music Fall Festival

Our friends at Small World Music are giving Toronto quite the treat with their current fall music festival. Last Friday (Sept 21st), a buddy and I went to check out the Fanfare Ciocarlia show at The Hoxton. For those unfamiliar, this band is a popular twelve-piece Balkan/Romani brass band originating from Romania. I first heard about them back when I lived in Sweden. One day, I was studying at a Romanian classmate’s house and these guys were playing through his stereo. I couldn’t understand a lick of what they were singing but that didn’t stop my feet from tapping to the quick and highly technical rhythm.

A friend and I showed up at the concert to join a very enthusiastic group of fans in attendance. One thing I love about these types of shows is they always attract the best of crowds. Everyone is there for one purpose – to enjoy the music. We’re a multi-cultural city, let’s embrace it!

Die-hard fans were singing along and, to my friend’s observation, dancing faster than his brain could think. It wasn’t exactly a rock show but I even saw a guy get up and body surf! Nothing but a great time for all.

Small World Music’s Fall Festival still has a couple more shows lined up before their finale concert on Sept 30th. To see the event listings and buy tickets visit: http://smallworldmusic.com/buy-tickets/

Sounds like it was an amazing event!! I wonder if Kokani Orkestar in Japan will attract a great crowd too!
