Čači Vorba was founded in 2006 by the singer and violinist Maria Natanson, who at aged 14 left her family and her classical music studies behind her to travel to the Carpathian Mountains, learning from folk musicians about how to give her music an 'authentic voice', as the name of the group suggests. Maria was then able to create her own style, inspired in equal measure by Romanian and Balkan Gypsy music and Polish village music, jazz and contemporary classical music. Though Maria is not a Gypsy herself, she writes songs in the Gypsy language. She has released three highly acclaimed albums to date (Szczera Mowa, Secret Marriage, Šatrika). The group's sound is built on traditional musical instruments including the Hungarian viola, the Turkish kemence, the Greek bouzouki, the Romanian cobza and the Eastern European goblet drum. They have pocketed awards from German and Polish music critics and played in more than 20 different countries, demonstrating to audiences how cathartic Romanian fusion is born.
