Around the World in 80 Tunes - Romania

Romania is a country with a vibrant music scene that has one foot in the past and one foot firmly in the future. From the big brass assault and Roma bravado of bands like Mahala Rai Banda to emerging young electronic talent - which is fast giving Romania's capital Bucharest a reputation for its forward thinking club culture. Nick Dwyer meets Aurel Ionita, band leader of Mahala Rai Banda and Cosmin TRG, one of the leading production talents in Romanian club music, for an insight into Romania's rich and unique culture and heritage.
