- "Cântă un artist" (music: Mihai Dolgan; lyrics: Efim Crimerman)
In 1970, "Noroc" won the "public sympathy" prize at the "Bratislava Lyra" festival . Later the same year, after a tour of the Ukraine, "Noroc" was banned as a result of a direct order by Ivan Bodiul, Chief Secretary of the Communist Party of the Moldavian Soviet Socialist Republic, due to "lack of discipline", "promotion of artistic values of poor quality", and "lack of healthy ideological orientation". Between the years 1974-1985 the band was reorganized by Mihai Dolgan under the name "Contemporanul". After 1985, "Contemporanul" reverted to the original name "Noroc". Since 1989 up to Mihai Dolgan's death in 2008, "Noroc"'s permanent vocalists were: Lidia Botezatu, Radu Dolgan, Mihai Dolgan.
The word "noroc" means "good luck" in the Romanian language. This word is also used as a greeting. "Noroc" is also said while toasting (the Romanian equivalent of "cheers").
