My journey into Romanian Music


Hey guys, just decided to post something different to my normal, just to spice things up a bit.

As you may not know about me, I listen to music from all over the world. Some people find that strange, as I don’t understand the language but if the melody is good, the beat is good then its a good tune for me.

I have many styles on my iPhone from French, Italian, Chinese, KPop, Hindi plus many more and now Romanian.

This area of music is still very new to me, so I am sure there are many other artists that I have still to learn about but here are my top artists and favourite song from them…so far

I bet when you saw Romanian Music you instantly thought of very traditional style music? well just like every country you do have that, but the music I am into is the current chart scene.

As you may have seen from previous blogs, or even my Travel Vlogs on Youtube I have visited Romania and while over there I keep listening to the background music in restaurants and bars etc

Not in any particular order…

Irina Rimes 

Fav Song: Visele –

Irina Rimes has many songs, and I really like them all but the one above just had something for me.

Carla’s Dreams

Fav Song: Sub Peelea Mea & the remix (Midi Culture Remix) :

Wow, this guys voice is so good, and all the songs have a great melody and beat. The one above good but the remix is always playing in my car. If you want to hear it in English then click HERE

Ioana Ignat

Fav Song: Nu Ma Uita :

For me, it was her voice that stood out, and then the music. The song above is one that I really like, and its melody had me hooked on it.

Ioana Ignat does sing other songs and sings with many other artists and it’s her voice that you will notice first.

Overall : 

So the above I would say are my top 3, as I have more songs on my phone from them than I do other artists.

The other ones I have on my phone, either have 1 song or many 2. Below I will have a few of these and links to the videos on YouTube.

Feel free to suggest more Romanian Artists you may that you think I might like.

If like me you enjoy getting into new artists and styles then hopefully I have introduced you into something new and one you will explore. Let me know if you try any of these, and what your thoughts are.

Here are just a few more for you to try…

Enjoy 🙂

Big Ben (Craiova, Romania) : Review

Strada Mircea Vodă 1
Craiova 200589, Romania

V: 27th April 2018      T:  +40 786 331 401  W:

Child-Friendly: Yes (well-behaved kids)      Accepts: Cash & Card

This was another place that got a good name, so its one I had to try and see if it lived up to all the good reviews.

On arrival we entered and were approached by a member of staff, she asked if we had a reservation (we didn’t) and looked at her booklet. She then looked at us and said we had to leave in 2 hours, as the reservation would arrive.

The girl showed us to the table and left, and another member of staff came over and gave us the menus. Both girls attitudes were that of someone who couldnt really be bothered, and we were hastling them but we stayed just in case it was just a bad start.

The Food…

Main Course

Rustic Pizza 26 Lei
tomato sauce, mozzarella, spice salami, bacon, mushrooms, olives, green pepper, sweet corn and red onion.


We waited for around 25mins for our order….was it worth the wait?

You would think with everything on this pizza it would have a lot of flavours, well it only had a little as I think there were too many flavours and it just didn’t work.

I was very disappointed, as Big Bed got a really good name and this pizza was just hmm so-so.

Overall very disappointed, firstly by the service. I felt like I was an inconvenience tonight, and then the pizza which was not that good.

I wouldn’t go back here.

Sorry guys.

Pizzeria Trevi (Craiova, Romania) : Review

When I was in Craiova last year, I noted a few places down to visit….I then lost that list but remembered this restaurant.

I was told it served the best pizza in Craiova, so I had to pop in and visit and try.

The atmosphere in this restaurant was nice, and had Italian music playing in the background at a very nice level.

The Food…

Now time to test what I’ve heard…..

Main Course

Romanaccia 30 Lei
Tomatoes, Mozzarella, Sausages, Salami


This looked good and smelled good and I couldn’t wait to dig in.

This was a very nice pizza, the flavours and base were really good. My only issue was the crust was a little too hard….was this the way it was meant to be? not sure….

Overall though I really enjoyed this and would like to visit here again on my next trip to Craiova.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 5

Value for Money : 5


You will see in my future posts about places in Craiova where I tried the pizza, this was the best!! the others were either bland or not really good value for money.

If you are ever in Craiova do visit here, and try the pizza you won’t be disappointed.
