Sounds of SARS, with Fanfare Ciocărlia

Get ready to give your hips a workout (supposing you're not regrettably bedridden with Long COVID), cause the one and only monsters of brass are about to make you want to shake off those SARS-CoV-2 blues

In the best of times music can be a joy and even the height of celebration, but in the worst of times music can be a welcomed reprieve from trying circumstances. So in these times of pandemic, with countries around the world finding themselves in varying states of disarray, in the attempt of injecting some light in our lives all SARS2-related posts here on From Filmers to Farmers will be featuring a more or less relevant song by the inimitable Romanian Gypsy brass band Fanfare Ciocărlia.

You'll find the embedded songs at the end of each post, those posts accessible by clicking on any of the titles below. Alternatively, if you'd like to peruse all the songs at once then you can do so below, songs ordered from the most recent in the series to the eldest. All songs and their albums can be purchased/streamed from Fanfare Ciocărlia's Bandcamp page (save for songs from their first three albums, held with another label, of which can also be found on Bandcamp here, here and here), or can otherwise be purchased/streamed from your favourite music service/retailer.
