Romanian army, no. 1/A, Cristi Minculescu, Walter Popa and Doru “Boro” Borobeika.

When they take the stage, thousands of voices sing in unison, because their repertoire brings together a lot of memories, a lot of nostalgia. The three were joined by drummer Mihai Dumitrescu.
“We are one of those lucky ones who have fans of all generations, but when I look around the room, I don’t see any difference in reaction between the young and the not-so-young. They jump the same way, they clap the same way, they sing the same way, all together, a choir that sends chills down your spine,” soloist Cristi Minculescu says in an interview with Fromula Aş.
