manele bucuresti

it starts with a cigarette waving in front of shot and gets better… and better… and better. use that cigarette to burn the catacombs of fabric to the 4th level of the ground. replace it with a hundred picnic tables. shock out!

I daresay birdseed knows more about manele than me. a surface scraping overview might say it’s working class music from bucharest (mostly performed by Roma) which is widely considered crass, dirty, backward etc. to the extent that someone wrote a virus that deletes all the files labelled manele from your hard drive (again, birdseed knows):

Practically any genre is worth looking up, but I say look out for the ones people hate.

Hi-culture and middle-brow dialectics. Romanian literary critic George Pruteanu called manele: “The pisswater of society“. wiki.

something (globalised media?) brings a nice cross-current with reggae/reggaeton. Check this ‘Turn Me On’ version:


Florin Salam & Denisa – Cineva ma suna cu numar privat (real video)


keep on top of your manele here.
