    I think some introduction to manele to non-Romanians is in order.

    This is a style of gypsy music that mixes Balkan and Middle Eastern music. It is similar to turbo-folk, chalga etc. The listening public are gypsies and, in general, the uneducated underclass of Romania. As a style of music, it is deeply hated by anyone else in Romania. Institutions have even regulation to forbid it.

    In the 1980s this music reemerged with the introduction of electronic/amplified instruments, though in communist Romania its profile was kept very low. These days, among left leaning groups there is a push to build a larger audience for manele, in the larger effort of integrating the gypsies. So quite often, in parties, by the time everyone is drunk, a manele song will be played - which is kind of the only instance this is acceptable.


    Anyway, here's a more progressive (as in progressive rock ) manele:
    (filmed at a gypsy festival, though the dudes on stage are Romanian)

    nope, everybody listens to manele, less the mediocre middle class - the urban nerds that work in IT or corporate jobs and watch Netflix.

    Romania is a manele/Gypsy music country. if your particular group/social class is not tasting it, well, you're minority anyway. overall we're just a Balkan kitsch country, like Bulgaria and Yugoslavia, with all the efforts of the wannabe Westerner hashtag rezist tefelists that voted you know what party (won't name it, don't want the Securitate to pick this up ).
