LIVE PERFORMANCE BY
EMILIA & THE GENTELMAN

MC FOR THIS EVENT IS WILMARK

The Master of Ceremonies (the presenter) is the person who animates an event, presents the artists' entry on stage, fills the empty moments, but more than that, the presence of a ceremonial master himself gives refinement to any type of event.
Wilmark, an original and charismatic entertainer, known as the "exotic" Romanian language speaker, wins the audience's sympathy as the master of ceremonies through overflowing energy and well-chosen jokes.

When you say CRISTI MINCULESCU (voice), VALTER POPA (guitar) and DORU BOROBEICĂ (bass), you have in front of you the whole history of Romanian rock; these are three of the most beloved Romanian artists, without needing any other presentation. It's enough to hear "Iris Flower", "Your Way", "Baby", "Bizarre Sleep", and you're already starting to hum these songs that have been our hymns for so long and that will continue to be heard only from the voices, strings and emotions of the composers.
Whenever Cristi Minculescu gives the signal: "Good evening, friends", thousands of voices are shouting in unison, because his repertoire is a national patrimony of Romanian rock, the soundtrack of memories for three generations.

The band just released "Winners", a song that’s telling us that the storms of life have made them stronger, that the times did not pass by them, leaving only the memory of what was once, but that they are still here, and despite the hardships of life, they will not step back or give up, but will win on their own forces and continue to write songs for us, for so many generations.
The band "Cristi Minculescu, Valter & Boro" starts in 2019, animated by the end of 2018, crowned by natural success on the way to regaining the name "Iris"!
