The proposed music is syncretic, combining jazz with archaic musicality specific to the cultural spaces through which the ballad takes us. At the boaundry between reality and legend, the story of the young innkeeper Kira Kiralina from Braila crosses times, fascinating writers, filmmakers and musicians, both through the drama and the oriental fragrance emanating from every scene.
Concert repertoire included musical pieces from the "Love Hospital" collection, by Anton Pann, and from Romanian, Turkish, Egyptian or Tunisian folklore, as well as musical pieces composed by the members of the ensemble and their guests.
The most acclaimed moments of the evening were the compositions of Mahmoud Chouki, combining North African stylistics with the harmonic language of jazz. An admirable musical piece performed by the whole ensemble, together with the guests, was the famous song "Ciocarlia", a moment of intense vibration that resonated perfectly with the public, creating a perfect symbiosis, completed with applause and ovations.
Among the main attractions of the evening were the digital animations projected on the walls of the Radio Hall, exceptionally designed by Oana Benko Raileanu, meant to help the audience to visualize certain narrative scenes, which is a novelty in the context of the old Romanian music
