What does folklore mean for Subcarpati?
Bean (band leader, vocal and composer/writer):
“For me it’s a source of energy. I had been the kind of person who used to look down on folklore and who used to have a bad opinion about Romania. Until I decided to give folk music one more chance and I discovered that it had the power to reconnect me to my childhood and I began to really enjoy it. Folk music has started to talk to me in a different way and has helped me discover a new selfconsciousness. I have become aware of the fact that many Romanians fought for their country and have managed to change our lives. For their sake and for our own sake we must learn to preserve the traditions for which they fought.”
