iarba Fiarelor is a musical project developed around the voice, percussion and the lyrics, inspired by the local culture and written in trueborn language. The project brings together the voice, guitar, bass, drums and percussion. Altogether, the instruments generate a symbiosis between lyrics, rhythms, elements of authentic Romanian folklore and more recent musical influences.

Folklore 2.0

The music iarba Fiarelor presents to the public sequences from the recent past of Romanians in an airy and organic way. At the cultural level it updates the themes and motifs that are ubiquitous in our lives. Due to this approach - folklore 2.0 - the band's compositions aim to access a wide audience, without age and geographical restrictions or framing in a musical niche.

Officially, iarba Fiarelor debuted its musical journey on June 15, 2018, at the Museum of Comparative Art in Sângeorz-Băi, in an intimate exhibition framework where the present public had the opportunity to feel the vibration and the energy of the band for the first time. Therefrom, the group appeared at local festivals in Bistrița Năsăud, Mureș, Cluj, Bihor and Bucharest and was invited to play the opening act for Villagers of Ioannina City (GR), Eyedrops (RO), E-an-na (RO), Zmei3 (RO/GE) or Methadone Skies (RO). The band organized its own concerts, of which the most recent brought together two hundred fans on the Vama Veche terrace in Bistrița.

About iarba Fiarelor music

When it comes to the music of iarba Fiarelor, some of you may be wondering why is it true born music? The time has come to put together the pieces that complete the picture that answers this question.

Before we get into the specifics and to give an outline of this image, we carefully picked a series of attributes that describe trueborn music. So we can say that the music iarba Fiarelor plays is: ancestral, ancestral, tribal, archaic, native, original, indigenous, primordial, primary, basic, uncreated, old, from the country, peasant (peasant = Lat. paganus), rustic, organic, ethereal, local, wild, forest, plantation, on the spot, folkloric, ethnic (ethnic), roots.

It's our music, not because it was composed by us, but because we belong to it. It's a music that the more you process, the more it loses its message. iarba Fiarelor’s music includes all the genres and subgenres of ancient music: song and enchantment, sketch, old age, dance and play, maiden, love and longing, hymn, curse and spiritual liberation, etc.

The musical motifs and themes found in the music are primary and similar to the old songs. The instrumental part ranges from sudden changes of tempo and rhythm breaks to single-track songs, moreover, on a single note - mantra, groan. Improvisation appears as in other genres of free singing, such as jazz or brass music, and the fiddlers have the opportunity to play together, eventually reaching the same accents, which the genre demands.

Trueborn music is inspired by and resembles the song of beasts of the earth and the sky. The rhythms and melodicity are based on and/or come from the song of indigenous birds and the onomatopoeic sounds of the wild animals. Trueborn music is temporarily nomadic, travels through time and crosses borders between people and animals reign because it has always been there.

Trueborn music is free because you can sing, hum, whistle and dance it. Because you can shake your head, your hands and your feet around the fire, on top of the mountain. You can listen to it laying on your back, because it has a high frequency. With it, you can trace back to the tribal music of the Euro-Indians who lived together with the flora and fauna. Free music must be sung as it requires because it establishes its own conventions.
