Yarabi[1] is an internationally successful Romanian dance-pop and house group. [2] The band has had success in its country of origin, as well as in Poland, France, Bulgaria, Turkey, Hungary, Moldova, Italy and Spain, and is credited as one of the most successful Romanian dance bands along with O-Zone, Morandi and Akcent. Yarabi consists of Ionuţ Cristian Tiu (known as "IC Tiu") - who has also worked as a composer, orchestrator and sound engineer - and Adrian Filipidescu (known as "Fillip"), former vocalist of the band Marfar.[1]


Summer 2007 was Yarabi's recognition for their work in music on the international market level. After numerous concerts in Bulgaria, Turkey, Hungary it followed concerts in Poland.[2] Yarabi participated to a great musical event organized by the biggest radio in Poland, Radio Eska, an event which is broadcast live by Polish national television.[2] At the concerts in Poland, tens of thousands of spectators have sung along with Adrian Filipidescu and IC Tiu the song "Yarabi".[2]

Yarabi had several charting songs in Poland in 2007 and even appeared on several hit compilations, such as "Popcorn Hits Lato 2007", "Bravo Hits", "The best lato 2007" and "Wiosna".[2]

Popular culture[edit]

  • The band Yarabi has a surprising connection with the trilogy Lord of the Rings . Some Yarabi songs are sung in the Sindarin language (one of Tolkien's Elvish languages): "Yarabi", "I Amar" ("I Amar prestar aen/Han mathon ne nen/Han mathon ne chea/A han noston ned gwilith") and continuing with stories full of mystery and magic in the song "Otilka".[1]
  • Yarabi were inspired in some of their songs by medieval Transylvania and legends of medieval Moldova. The lyrics of "Yarabi" and "I Amar" songs are from stories and legends with wizards, with a character in the music video of "Yarabi" transforming into a owl. The "I Amar" video was filmed at the Neamţ Citadel, an old castle dating from 14th century in Moldova.
