Trei parale (“Threepenny”) is a group of young urbanites drawn by the old music specific to the Carpathian region, who perform traditional musics of both the Romanians and other ethnic groups that live in the area (Jews, Hungarians, Gypsies). The leader, Florin Iordan is an ethnomusicologist at the Romanian Peasant Museum with a deep knowledge of Romanian traditional musics, gained during many episodes of field research across the country.
So far, they have developed three projects and working on the fourth, Jazzy World, exploring old Romanian traditional music and will be brought on stage in 2015
The first and second project on which Trei parale embarked was entitled Bazar I and Bazar II, an incursion into the world of inns and taverns, small towns and city slums of 19th-century Walachia and Moldavia – a complex period, when previously strong Oriental influences began to lose ground to the Western wave that was to take over all cultural areas. Old and new models (whether from Istanbul or Paris) aside, the world of Romanian towns was a motley one in which large Gypsy or Jewish neighborhoods stood next to the Romanian ones and to smaller Greek, Armenian, Italian, etc. communities. This mixed cultural world is reflected in the substantial, savory musical repertoire of the period.
The project Bazar II enrich it comes to first, bringing new elements and forgotten music.
In the reconstruction of this musical world, the members of Trei parale relied chiefly on transcriptions made in the 19th century by Anton Pann, a psalmist and theorist of Byzantine music, published in a few volumes entitled The Hospital of Love. This was complemented by trips to the countryside for research among old musicians, the study of old field recordings made by Constantin Brailoiu, and by rummaging through various musical folklore collections. The band’s undertaking is not a strict, accurate, or orthodox one – it would be impossible, so they constantly explore and experiment.
Some of the music in this projects was recorded and released on their CDs, also entitled Bazar.I and Bazar II .
Now, the third project ’’ The shepherd who lost his sheep’’ explores the powerful sounds of ancient musics peasant. That aims to make a musical journey all over the country and to revive old songs can for hundreds of years. They play very ancient instruments, as caval – big pipe -, tilinc─â, twin flutes, bagpipes, dramba, zither, kobsa, gorduna, doba and others.
Their third CD ’’ The shepherd who lost his sheep’’ will appear into the next spring
The band gave concerts abroad at the medieval festivals, old music, theater and open air festivals, international fairs (Belgie, Hungary, Turkey, Germany, Italy, Great Britain, Poland, Israel…).
They also performed at art exhibition and their music is played on radio and TV stations.
The group made the music for two theater plays and for two films “The Story of Bucur” Aurelia Mihai, Germany 2009 and ‘’Kira Kiralina” 2014 by one of the best Romanian film director, Dan Pita
