in Vaser Valley
An original event was organized on the Vaser Valley in Maramures County this weekend. The “Classic” string quartet of the Hungarian Opera in Cluj-Napoca performed a symphonic concert in the midst of nature. The idea for the concert originated with a young couple in the Vaser Valley area. The artists played at their wedding, and the couple fell in love with their music. Organizing the event was only a step away. Almost one hundred tourists climbed aboard the slow train and headed to the Paltin stop. On reaching it, they were surprised to find the quartet there. The next musical project in the midst of nature will be a rock concert offered by the Hazard band from Cluj, scheduled for the beginning of August.
Folk You at Vama Veche
Legends of Romanian folk and rock met up at Vama Veche last weekend, from Thursday to Sunday. Thousands of fans sang and danced for hours on end at the most important summer event, dedicated to high quality music, organized on the seaside by ‘Jurnalul National.’
The folk family came together on the beach of Vama Veche to sing, as one, songs which made history throughout the past decades. The first day of the festival featured concerts by Tapinarii, Pasarea Colibri and Iris. The festival continued with resounding names in folk, such as Alexandru Andries, Zoia Alecu, Stefan Hrusca, Nicu Alifantis & Semineu Band, Compact, Ducu Bertzi and Tudor Gheorghe.
