With a reputation for speed, the Romanian Gypsy brass band Fanfare Ciocarlia calls itself "the hardest working band in the blow biz." In their tiny, rural enclave of Zece Prajini, the menfolk have maintained the native musical tradition in its purest form for generations. Now seasoned performers on the world stage, this dyed-in-the-wool ensemble can just as easily goof on Steppenwolf or the 007 theme as pound the wedding and funeral songs of their ancestors. It takes brass. Either way, their music provides an oomph to wake the dead and stir the living. Experience it as nature intended, in the open air, on the lawn at Duke Gardens. —Sylvia Pfeiffenberger
