Mândru că sunt Român cu astfel de piese în Balcani.

Feel free to translate this, lots of love and respect from Romania!

No fain. Multam de review (sau fonetic reviu?). Mai am piese de inspiratie folclorica, tot cu trupa asta, si mai am alea vechi din... 2006, 2009, 2011...

Oh my god dude, I didn't think I'd find something like this on newgrounds! Amazing! 🤩

sorohanro responds:

Thanks, I really appreciate this. We have quite a few tunes like this on YouTube, more to come also.

Thanks for that mate .
If this doesn't make you smile and/or dance you might be dead behind the eyes...

sorohanro responds:

Thanks for the very nice review. Maybe soon we'll get to make a video for this one :)

This jam melted my face <3

sorohanro responds:

Thanks :)
We recorded 3 tunes, hopefully will have time to mix them and post them soon. Want the stem to make a remix?

Amazing, kinda sounds like a niggun (Jewish thing).

sorohanro responds:

I think Balkan music and Jewish music are having quite a lot of things in common. They use similar scales, sometimes similar orchestration/ arrangement, and overall similar feel. Thanks for review.
