ZMEI3: Rough Romanian Soul (Romania)


 

The Embassy of Romania to the United States of America, in celebration of the Romanian Presidency of the Council of the European Union, proudly presents for the first time in Washington, the Romanian band Zmei3.

ZMEI3 is the Romanian band from Berlin, whose beautiful and heartfelt music rises from the harsh realities and struggles of a post-Communist rule.

Their debut album Rough Romanian Soul (out April 22nd, 2016 on Six Degrees Records) is produced by GRAMMY® award-winner, Ian Brennan, best known for his work with Tinariwen. The album was recorded in august 2015, live without overdubs in the Transylvanian mountains.

The Rough Romanian Soul style is an ode to Romanian music entrenched with a deep history of regional blues and soul, as well as the inherent spirituality of their work. A new aggressive style mashing up blues and soul with influences of jazz, avant-garde, and folk with introspective topics and emotive soundscapes.

PRESS QUOTES:
"This folksy, bluesy, jazzy, slightly quirky, avant-gardesque musical landscape of the rough road of the post-Communist Romanian soul. Rough Romanian Soul is a fierce, authentic, artfully crafted musical landscape.“ World Music Central

"ZMEI3 are psychedelic and melancholic, spiritual and soulful, jazzy and experimental, sometimes even rock'n'roll, always very Romanian - and above all brave.“ West Deutschland Radio
