About The Event

To mark the historical breakthrough that, more than a century ago, brought all Romanian provinces together in one, unified state, join us for an evening of exceptional music and gastrocultural discoveries. The event features Taraf de Chicago, a multinational ensemble fronted by Romanian-American singer and visual artist Ana Everling, best known for their original arrangements that invest singalong Romanian folk melodies with American tonalities to create an electrifying musical melting pot. The concert is followed by a reception with Romanian-American fusion menu.

The event is organized by the Romanian Cultural Institute together with the Permanent Mission of Romania to the United Nations and Consulate General of Romania to New York.

This is a free event, but booking is required. Please order your free tickets HERE.

ABOUT THE PERFORMERS

Formed in Chicago in 2019, Taraf de Chicago sprang out of Ana Everling's love for Romanian folklore - carols, merry songs, wedding laments, doinas, dance music, children tunes, infused with tales, riddles, proverbs and old sayings. While the basic scores are Romanian melodies, the instrumentation brings a strong American influence, replacing the traditional cimbalom with the banjo, the accordion with the piano and electric guitar, and adding instruments like clarinet, saxophone or various percussion instruments.

Thanks to a grant offered by the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events, the group will soon release “Taraf de Chicago - a Moldovan Fantasia”, an album that will also include music written by Romanian national composers and poets, rendered in original arrangements.

Taraf de Chicago are:

Ana Everling - vocals, percussion, guitar

Olya Prohorova - violin, vocals

Adrien Chevalier - violin

Patrick Donley - guitar, banjo, piano, vocals, percussion

Alex Brescanu - whistle, caval, vocals

Kitt Lyles - bass, vocals

Hunter Diamond - clarinet, saxophone, flute, vocals, percussion.
