I know it’s been a little bit since I’ve shared some new Romanian music with you all, but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t creating some awesome stuff over there. In fact, just in the past week or so we’ve had three really great tracks released from three super talented artists, which I think you’re really going to enjoy.
As always, if you’re not a native Romanian speaker, you can still enjoy the music. All of these tracks have incredibly beautiful, well done videos, too, which can be enjoyed even if you don’t necessarily understand the language.
ANTONIA – “Gresesc”
I’ve mentioned my love of Antonia in the past, so I was very excited to see that she not only had a new release, but one that was sung in Romanian since she typically sings in English. “Gresesc” means “wrong” in Romanian and is, to my best understanding, a typical song about a relationship between two people on different paths, who might want each other but aren’t necessarily right for each other.
If you like this song, you can pick up this single on iTunes.
Liviu Teodorescu – “Dor de ea”
You know why I first listened to this song? Because Romanian music video wizard Ionut Trandifir did the clip, and I will watch literally anything he touches. The dude is an absolute artist, so when I saw he had a new release I immediately checked it out. Turns out, I’m glad I did: I’d never listened to Liviu Teodorescu before, but I like his sound… and of course the video is amazing, as usual. “Dor de ea” means, to my best translation, “miss her,” although it seems from the song that he won’t be getting back with her anytime soon.
Soré – “Un minut”
I love love love Soré, not just her music but she seems like a genuinely nice person who just radiates positivity. This song is beautiful, and seems to focus on the moment in a relationship when everything can change. (Get it? “un minut” – “one minute.” See! You know Romanian!) I especially love that this video was released on the first of March, which is a day when Romania celebrates the welcoming of spring with flowers and March amulets… and even though it’s still snowy and cold here, I loved all of the flowers in the video.
Did you enjoy these tracks? Want to hear more from these artists? Do you have a correction to my elementary level understanding of the Romanian language? 😉 Be sure to leave your thoughts in the comments!
