Brass Band, Romania, 1983

Photograph by James Stanfield

AA sousaphone player and his bandmates add a folksy note to a wedding celebration in Putna, Romania. Located on migration routes on the Balkan Peninsula, Romania has been shaped by waves of passing peoples including Taters, Bulgarians, Ottomans, and Habsburgs, each of which left traces of their cultural traditions in the predominantly Eastern Orthodox country.
