ZMEI3 este un grup muzical româno-german care a creat la Berlin un nou stil – Rough Romanian Soul, care îmbină influențe de folk-jazz cu atitudine punk rock și cu un sound avangardist cu accente psihedelice.
În anul 2015 trupa ZMEI3 a înregistrat primul album împreună cu producătorul Ian Brennan, laureat al premiului Grammy (Tinariwen). Albumul “Rough Romanian Soul” a fost înregistrat live într-un sat din munți și lansat de casa de discuri Six Degrees Records din San Francisco. În 2016, ZMEI3 au cântat pe scena celui mai mare festival de World Music din Marea Britanie, WOMAD Festival, și au susținut o sesiune live la BBC Radio 3, precum și trei interviuri exclusive pentru BBC. În 2017 a apărut în premieră mondială la PRI Public Radio International din SUA, documentarul “ZMEI3 – A Trip To Transylvania“, regizat de jurnalistul german Roman Rhode de la Der Tagesspiegel.

Zmei3 (pronounced zmay-tray) is made up of Romanian immigrants whose beautiful and heartfelt music rises from the harsh realities and struggles of a post-Communist rule. The powerhouse voice of Zmei3 is Paula Turcas, a soprano opera singer who gave up classical music in the pursuit of a more truthful artistry grounded in the struggles of everyday life. The leader of the band is guitarist Mihai Victor Iliescu, who created the Rough Romanian Soul concept and genre. Their sound is made all the more unique by featuring vibraphone virtuoso, Oli Bott, for their lead instrument. The band’s name is inspired by an ancient Romanian anti-hero, misfit dragon – a rebellious figure, who rarely prevails, but remains committed to his ideals. Their debut album Rough Romanian Soul (out April 22nd, 2016 on Six Degrees Records) is produced by GRAMMY® award-winner, Ian Brennan, best known for his work with Tinariwen, Zomba Prison Project, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, and the Malawi Mouse Boys. The album was recorded in august 2015, live without overdubs in the Transylvanian mountains. The name of the album, Rough Romanian Soul is also the name of the new style that Zmei3 created. It is an ode to Romanian music entrenched with a deep history of regional blues and soul, as well as the inherent spirituality of their work. A new aggressive style, mashing up blues and soul with influences of jazz, avant-garde, and folk with introspective topics and psychedelic soundscapes. Across the fifteen songs, Zmei3 cover topics of resistance, immigration, oppression, love, death, pride, loneliness, and strength.
