She was born in Bucharest’s outskirts on 25th September 1913. Maria Tanase
made her debut at the age of 25 in Romania
on 2nd of June 1937, but soon she got to represent her country at the International Exhibition in Paris
and at New York World’s Fair
. At Paris she meets Constantin Brancusi
, the famous sculptor who was 37 years older than her and falls for him immediately. Brancusi
used to tell her: “When I listen to you singing, Maria, I would be capable to carve for every song a Bird in Space”
. Their romance lasted only two years, but it is said that Brancusi was her true and only love.
In the spring of 1939 she knows a brilliant success at the International Exhibition in New York
where she meets Franklin Roosevelt
the newly elected president of the USA.
It is said that unfortunately her early records have been destroyed by the authorities during the National Legionary State and for a period she was banned from public performance in Romania. But during World War II she makes stage tours singing in front of the injured soldiers
. In December 1943 she sings for the Royal Cavalry Regiment
, a concert attended by King Mihai I of Romania
and other members of the government.
The Nightingale of traditional Romanian music
was a true genius. Maria Tanase
had such a success that all musicians from Romania
were jealous on her. She was also a very beautiful woman
, a true lady and a person sang from her heart. In a radio interview
she said that she would be incapable to sing a song if she does not love it.
Maria Tanase was
a woman who earned a lot, gave a lot, loved life and knew how to live at maximum. She is not only a symbol of Romanian music, but a fairy tale lady

Alexandrina’s music is different, it express power, passion and color. Alexandrina Hristov created a rich style of communicate emotions. Her songs are a mixture between music, poetry and image. You feel this when you interact with her music.
Her music is a mixture between acoustic music, jazz music, rock music and soul music with special elements in both her songs and lyrics. With this abundance of elements and with great passion Alexandrina shares in all her concerts a positive energy that lasts.
We selected three songs that express the beauty and the tenderness of Alexandrina music.
Alexandrina Hristov – La femme qui t’aime (Un, deux, trois)
Alexandrina – Flori de Spin (2013) (Thorn flowers)
Alexandrina – Fata merge pe jos (The girl walks)
ROBIN AND THE BACKSTABBERS
15th April 2014
The band was formed in 2010. After four years of concerts, one album, three singles and many unforgettable moments, ROBIN AND THE BACKSTABBERS is now one of the most beloved bands in Bucharest (the capital city of Romania). The musical style is melodramatic pop.
We find ROBIN AND THE BACKSTABBERS music very inspirational. All the songs have a rich story behind, a complex sound, lots of passion and have the power to make you feel the sound, to make you vibrate.
