Last year, Hollywood came knocking in the remote eastern Romanian village of Zece Prajini, a hop, skip, and a jump from the former Soviet republic of Moldova. With its muddy streets, horse-drawn carts, and modest houses, the place, even according to villagers, is “the end of the earth.” What attracted movie moguls to Zece Prajini? Borat needed a cover of the biker anthem “Born to be Wild,” and they had a very particular group in mind. That group was Fanfare Ciocãrlia, the speed-loving masters of Romany brass music’s curlicue melodies and exhilarating rhythms, who were sought out for the soundtrack of last year’s quirky hit, “Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.” And while it may seem odd to have rural Romanian gypsies playing Steppenwolf behind the antics of a pseudo-Kazakh, it’s just par for the course for the eleven-member, multi-generational Fanfare Ciocãrlia, whose history and inspirations span the globe. This history comes to life on Queens and Kings (Asphalt Tango Records), an album that draws together the reigning royalty of Europe’s Roma musicians and pays touching tribute to Ioan Ivancea, Ciocarlia’s late bandleader.
