This band is a huge hit in a part of Europe we associate only with a map and nothing else. Get here at Touch this evening, to know more.
Romanian dance-pop band Akcent will be performing live house and Euro-pop music on 28th August, at Touch.
Members of the band are Adrian Claudiu Sana, Sorin Stefan Brotnei and Mihai Gruia.
Adrian Claudiu Sana started the group in 1999, with his female counterpart, Ramona Barta. In April 2008, Marius Nedelcu left the band. Soon after Marius left, the 3 boys called in Corneliu Ulici, a former member of another Romanian group called Bliss. However, in September 2009, after 9 months, Corneliu Ulici left the band to dedicate his time to his acting career.
Akcent's single "Kylie" has risen to the top of several European music charts. "Kylie" also became a moderate hit in the US, charting well on the Hot Dance Singles Sales chart. Their debut Romanian album In Culori was released in Romania in 2002, which had the hit single Ti-am Promis.
Their English debut album French Kiss with Kylie was released in Europe in 2006, and includes their 2 European smash hits: "Kylie" and "Jokero". Their song French Kiss (the English version of 9 Mai) is a cover of "Extemporal La Dirigentie" by Stela Enache (a Romanian singer that was highly acclaimed in the 80s and whose song "Ani de Liceu" with her husband is still a hit among teenagers).
In 2009 the band released a new album, Fara Lacrimi. Two songs from the album, "Stay With Me" and "That's My Name," have become hits on radio stations in Romania as well as in a number of other countries including Greece, Armenia, Russia, Poland, Turkey, Croatia, Slovenia, Hungary, Serbia, Lithuania, Bulgaria, Egypt, Pakistan, Ukraine, Tunisia, Azerbaijan, Jordan, Lebanon, and Albania.
