Karandila are one of the tightest and most dynamic brass kjuchek orchestras in the business. They are not as loose or dirty as your typical Gypsy band; instead they incorporate the energy and crispness of Bulgarian folklore (like rachenitsa and horo) Karandila's signature sound is unmistakable and very energetic. Synchronized brass instruments are their main suit. Overall, they have a well coordinated and "orchestral" sound. They overall compositions grabs your attention right away with clinical drumming and indefinable trumpet improvisations, flowing from jazz to gypsy.
